‘…And Death Came Third!’ The Definitive Guide To Networking & Speaking In Public – 7th October 2016
Do you dread going to networking events? Do you hide at the back of the room when you have the opportunity to present? In 1984 a New York Times Survey on Social Anxiety placed death third in the list of people’s biggest fears. The top two responses were walking into a room full of strangers and speaking in public. And death came third! During this show, business networking strategist Andy Lopata, and Business Development Strategist Peter Roper, will talk us through their top tips for networking and speaking and why their book is still as relevant today as it was when it was first published ten years ago!
