“A desk is a dangerous place to view the world.” --John Le Carré Author

Association executives and their stakeholders learn the technical skills required for career success, often overlooking the importance of conversation, networking, and rapport-building skills. The ability to talk easily with members and potential members is a learned skill, not a personality trait. Acquiring it will establish rapport with colleagues, clients, and referral sources, with peers in the marketplace and liaisons within the community at large, leaving a positive impression that lasts longer than an exchange of business cards. Each program is tailored to the audience.

Presenter: Debra Fine

Bestselling author, keynote speaker and trainer Fine began her career as an engineer, an occupation that allowed her to maintain her natural shyness and avoid situations that required social and personal interactions. Now a long time member of the National Speakers Association and the Global Speakers Federation, she presents and trains audiences across the globe. Fine designs her presentations and researches her books to teach technically oriented professionals conversation skills and business networking techniques that help in developing business relationships, gaining visibility and building rapport in the workplace. Debra’s bestselling books: The Fine Art of Small Talk: How to Start a Conversation, Keep It Going, Build Networking Skills—and Leave a Positive Impression (Hachette), The Fine Art of the Big Talk: How to Win Clients, Deliver Great Presentations, and Solve Conflicts at Work (Hachette) have been translated and published in over 2 dozen countries around the world. Just released is Debra's third in the “Fine Art” series: Beyond Texting: The Fine Art of Face-to-Face Communication for Teenagers (Canon).
