Synopsis-
  • From job interviews to business meetings to office parties—small talk is a big part of business success. In THE FINE ART OF SMALL TALK, nationally-recognized communication expert Debra Fine reveals the techniques and strategies listeners can use to make small talk effortless and increase their ability to network in any setting.

About the Author-
  • Former engineer Debra Fine was a wallflower if there ever was one. But when she found herself at 40, a single mom and divorcee, who had watched her more affable colleagues get promoted around her, she decided she needed to step up her conversational skills. And in doing so she developed a system she now teaches to countless others. Debra has become a nationally recognized expert on communication skills, presenting keynotes, training sessions and workshops for numerous corporations and organizations along with hundreds of insurance, real estate, legal, financial and health care associations.
