What you'll learn in this communications course:

How can you navigate small talk towards deeper, more significant topics? How do you gracefully exit from monotonous or unwanted conversations? How do you organically grow your professional network?

In this online webinar, we’ll explore how to feel more confident and engaging with strangers and how to forge deeper relationships with existing personal and professional contacts. You’ll gain knowledge of the dynamics of conversations of all varieties, from small talk to networking events and social gatherings of all sizes. You’ll also gain new tips for staying relaxed when speaking in front of large groups, as well as active listening techniques to improve information recall and emotional IQ. But most importantly, you'll gets plenty of practice to put your new conversation skills to use.

Question from Cathy M.
I know you already answered about the price difference but I don’t understand. Student/entrepreneur or professional? Entrepreneurs are professionals, and if we’re taking your class we’re all students.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Cathy! The student can choose - there are no pre-requisites. The idea is to make the workshop more affordable by offering tiered pricing.

It was a nice workshop. But not quite what I expected. It felt a little juvenile. I thought it was going to be geared more towards professionals.

Reviewed by Holly F. on 4/14/2020
Andrew was great! He was informative and engaging - I enjoyed his class very much!
The Art of Conversation
Reviewed by Sandra K. on 2/6/2020
This was a very practical, "learn by doing" class. I loved that he proved or guided us to discover consequences/abilities for ourselves before explaining the results; we experienced for ourselves an improvement in focus or memory as a result of posture, awareness and focus. The class was small (7 people) and well structured, with a clear beginning, middle and end. It moved smoothly from theoretical structure to practice to wrapping up a summary of the most important takeaways to remember. The materials and content he prepared were all excellent quality. Andrew is clearly committed and passionate about helping people improve. He stayed late on his own time to make sure we got the full benefits of the course, when factors out of his control disrupted the start. He's extremely professional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him if my company wants to bring in a coach or if my friends need help with interviews, networking or negotiation.
