Good intro if not aware about making eye-contact, smiling, handshakes and body language, attitudes, mirroring other, dressing, etc. Connect: open (attitude and body), eye contact, smile, speak (introduce self), sync. Gives lots of exercises to practice.

2-3 concepts intéressants mais beaucoup de blabla entouré d'une flopée de truismes.

Solid introductory primer on how to impress and solicit business at parties, work functions, etc.

If you read one book on event socialization, read Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People" instead. "How to Connect in Business" isn't a bad read, but it's filled with common-sense anecdotes and examples that will be obvious to anyone who has a pair of working brain cells. There's not a lot of time spent dwelling on various aspects of the book, and it's designed to be a quick read th

The information provided in this book has application in the real world. I learned a few interesting tools which I look forward to incorporating into my business networking activities. It is information which I also will share with my coaching clients.

I enjoyed this quick read. While the message isn't groundbreaking and some may feel that it promotes putting up a false front, it does provide good tips for how to help start a conversation off on the right foot and get to the point quickly.

I learned a lot about connecting with people, even in a non-buisness sense. The audio version is fun because the author has a great accent.

Not rocket science, but a great book to re-read every once in awhile to keep you sharp and prevent those less than desirable personality traits we all have from surfacing at the wrong time.

I am passionate about human potential.

I spent the first 25 years of my working life as a fashion photographer and as a father of five children. I met so many people with tremendous potential but without any people skills - they were like roses with rubber bands wrapped around them - and they'd never blossom until someone took off that rubber band. I made up my mind to be that person.
