Do You Want To Be More Comfortable and Confident In Social Settings? A Master Networker? And a Conversationalist?

Does it seem like you’ve tried everything in your power to control your social anxiety, and yet, despite your best intentions, you’re still plagued by:

  • Dreading the next business social event?
  • Wasting valuable “networking” opportunities?
  • Making poor first impressions?
  • Struggling to “make small talk”?

Don’t Continue to Let Social Anxiety Sabotage Your Success

Make no mistake: Your social anxiety may not be your fault, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t — or can’t — do anything to STOP it!

The costs of continuing to repeat this pattern are just too steep…

We are all walking biographies — what story are you communicating to others through your unspoken soft social skills?

From the boardroom, to the business lunch to the backyard barbeque—your business is always open.

Think about all of the relationships that you haven’t made because you’re afraid to network with someone that you know would be a good customer, business associate, mentor, or even a potential friend.

Think about how much harder you have to work because your first impression is often a weak one and you struggle with “small talk”.

… and that’s not to mention the toll it’s taking on your personal life.

booknewFor more than twenty years, I have helped people feel more confident and at ease in their everyday lives by teaching them about etiquette, protocol, and soft social skills. Whether I’m doing one-on-one coaching or group classes, writing blogs, visiting the White House, or appearing in my nationally syndicated “Manners Minute” television segments, I always focus on the same core principles: kindness as opposed to formality, and relationships as opposed to rules.

I’ve worked with thousands of people with suffering needlessly with exact same problem, and been able to help most of them put an end to their social anxiety for good! Now they are living fuller, richer, more successful lives.

The Secret to Social Self-Confidence

You see, the secret to social self-confidence is to know and understand the rules of social engagement before you’re in the middle of an uncomfortable situation. In a simple sense, when you know which fork use — you are liberated. It works the same way with small talk, introductions, eye contact, and “The Perfect Hand Shake”.

What Patricia's Clients are Saying:

“Patricia brought into a fruition a vision for Inclusive Student Excellence at UNC. The experience was once-in-a-lifetime for many students and still is a hot topic for conversation. Patricia was the perfect inaugural keynote speaker for our College to Corporate program!”

Ada Wilson Suitt
J.D. Director of Inclusive Student Excellence / University of North Carolina

“I thought it was very valuable. Though you cannot possibly take away everything, I think there were some key takeaways that I will certainly roll into my daily life. Inspire would be a great venue for her, because she would be especially “inspiring” to women and they would enjoy interacting with her and hearing her story in general. A speaker like Patricia is invaluable and something I took as a privilege to sit through.

Renee Buzek
