A small, hardback pocket book to reach for whenever you’re stuck for words

Ah, what could be better than good food, good wine and stimulating conversation? The food and wine can be bought…but good conversation is harder to acquire. If you want to be at the top of everyone’s dinner party invite list then Judy Apps and The Art of Conversation can help you master the knack of conversing like a poet. By showing you how conversation works, Judy will help you nail the best way to start a conversation, what to say, how to express yourself and be understood and how to debate effectively. With the help of this little book you’ll also learn how to glide through networking events, meetings and interviews. You’ll be able to raise your profile at work, build alliances, motivate and inspire others. You’ll be a hit both at work and home.
