Have you ever wanted to ‘be yourself’ with other people, but felt held back? Would you like to learn and practise all the tools that will help you communicate confidently and easily with others, on your own terms, and in your own style? Do you wish you could just turn up to social events and feel fantastic?

Perhaps your professional life relies on skilful networking and you’d like to find it effortless? Imagine for a moment what it would be like to look forward to social or business events of all kinds - even if you don’t know a soul there. You would arrive feeling confident that you could approach anyone and say anything that you need or want to say. If this sounds impossible, please take a deep breath, and just allow yourself to be aware instead that achieving this is not just probable, but virtually inevitable, once you know how it’s done, and believe that you can do it too. That’s the purpose of this wonderful book.


I hated social events

I first met Clare around 1999. At that time, I hated (and feared) social events. Clare surprised me. She didn't talk about how to survive, but how to have fun!

I was one of those 'intense' people, with no idea how to chat! Clare explained that good 'starter' topics could be 'the person's connection with the event' or 'comments about the location (if positive)' (p.143) Lightbulb moment! Less 'I' or 'you' and more 'we' or 'they'! This simple piece of advice has helped me enormously over the last 20 years, and the book if full of many, many more tips like this! I recommend it.
