About this class

What does it take to navigate small talk towards deeper, more significant topics? How do you gracefully exit from monotonous or unwanted conversations? How do you organically grow your professional network?

In this workshop, we’ll explore the many ways to feel more confident engaging with strangers and forging deeper relationships with existing personal and professional contacts. We’ll delve into the dynamics of conversations of all varieties, from small talk at the office to networking events and social gatherings of all sizes. We’ll also cover tips for staying relaxed when speaking in front of large groups, as well as active listening techniques to improve information recall and emotional IQ. But most importantly, everyone will get lots of practice pitching, improvising, and schmoozing.
