Research on shyness has yielded an interesting fact: Over 90% of American adults self-identify as SHY. That includes founders, funders, vendors, potential clients and partners.

The abilities to meet, mingle and make meaningful connections with supporters are essential. Those who engage others— as they interact face-to-face —enjoy the additional benefits of developing rapport and trust that are the foundation of long-term relationships.

Recognized networking expert, Susan RoAne, is the best-selling author of the new Silver Anniversary edition of How To Work a Room and communication strategist who gets her audiences up on their feet practicing their in-person socializing skills that build relationships.

  • Approach “Strangers” and “Break the ice” at meetings, conventions and social functions
  • Engage comfortably in Small Talk and Turn it into BIG Talk
