    The techniques in this course come from over 30 years of experience attending meetings and networking. The tips are things used by professionals every day to stop people from wasting their time. Learning to get out of a conversation can be even more tricky than getting one started. Feeling trapped by someone who just won't take a hint that you don't want to talk anymore can be incredibly uncomfortable. I developed this course to help my students who have felt "cornered" before and didn't know how to get away from the other person without feeling awkward. 

    One of my clients, Kim, spent 20 years avoiding networking events because she was traumatized in this way. She was able to overcome her aversion and learned these easy to learn techniques... and now she has no fear of meeting people professionally.

    The lessons in this course are broken down so that you will understand not only what to say, but why it can help you. The practice techniques will enable you to be more confident, more quickly.
