Small talk is the appetizer to great friendships online and offline. Agree? Thoughts? How many times have you gone to meet people and didn’t meet anyone because it was too noisy, or you were too shy, or not in the mood and sat or stood in the corner and wanted to meet someone for business networking or other reasons, but failed? Watch this video and consider your troubles over. Practice small talk. What is small talk? Debra Fine has excellent tips to get through your challenges.
Do you want to be a better conversationalist? FINE TUNE your rapport building with Debra Fine. Are you an engineer, accountant, computer programmer, who never talks to people? You are in the right place at the right time. What is your nature? Are you an introvert? Extravert? Are you born with the gift of gab? Do you hide in the restroom fussing with your hair? How do you engage someone in conversation? Would you like better confidence to do all the above? Debra’s tips are wonderful, but additionally I recommend in 142 countries to seek out the nearest Toastmasters club and join. In 90 years Toastmasters clubs directed by founder and late Ralph Smedley, you learn the art of communication and leadership through prepared speech making and impromptu off the cuff 2 minute talks. You can use these skills to enhance your networking skills. The 1st ten speeches give you powerful tools to boost your techniques. (Vocal Variety, gestures and when to do them, body language, and a TON more)
