Speaker: Kelly Standing, author, speaker and coach, STANDING Media

Topic: STANDING at the Party: A No-Fail Formula for Making Conversation Comfortably and Profitably

In this age of unlimited texting and 140 character tweets, some of us struggle more with face-to-face small talk than we do with a big presentation. After all, you can’t text a handshake. You can’t Photoshop eye contact. No PowerPoint slides will save you one-on-one. Simply, when it comes to making conversation face-to-face, you can’t just plug it in or phone it in, no matter how smart your phone seems.

So what can we do at cocktail parties, professional gatherings or even at family reunions to break the ice and make the awkwardness go away?

Kelly Standing, author, speaker and coach at STANDING Media, will teach you a quick, pre-party exercise you can review before every gathering plus great conversation starters and conversation builders that will take you beyond “hello” and the weather. She’ll share easy-to-remember, easy-to-use techniques for moving a prospect from small talk to big sales.
