You are nervous and tongue tied at business and social events and dread attending company parties, networking events and engaging in small talk. At times you are so distracted you can only think to ask, "What do you do?" At business events you look for people you already know or hang out at the bar or buffet.
You aren't alone. Competent, talented, intelligent people from all walks of life need assistance in developing conversation and social skills. These skills are necessary in a world where your business success can depend on developing successful relationships with colleagues, clients, and customers. As a study at Harvard University discovered, 15% of your financial success and the reason you get a job, keep a job and advance in a job is related to your training and expertise while 85 % is dependent on your people skills. 

If you are distracted and worrying about what to say, you may lose your focus or become less effective and in business a missed opportunity can be a lost opportunity. Learning the art of small talk and becoming a good conversationalist is important because it is integral to establishing rapport. Small talk is the icebreaker that clears the way for more in depth conversations, laying the foundation for stronger relationships. It is true that people buy goods and services from those they know and trust. Being a good conversationalist can enhance your leadership abilities, reduce your anxiety in social situations, boost your confidence and lead to new clients, customers and friends.

If you need to boost your self confidence, climb the corporate ladder, broaden your business and social circles and feel comfortable in any social situation from dinner, increase your social intelligence then training in the art of conversation and hands on cocktail etiquette and networking skills is for you.
