Bestselling author, keynote speaker, trainer and internationally recognized communication expert Debra Fine began her career as an engineer, an occupation that allowed her to maintain her natural shyness and avoid situations that required social and personal interactions. Now a 18+ year member of the National Speakers Association, she presents to and trains audiences across the globe including Google, General Electric, COMERICA Banks, Texas Association of School Boards, Johns Manville along with hundreds of associations and chambers across the country.
Fine designs her interactive presentations and researches her books to teach technically oriented professionals (along with the spouses that they drag along to conferences and banquets) conversation skills and business networking techniques that help in developing business relationships, gaining visibility and building rapport. Debra’s newly releasedThe Fine Art of the Big Talk:How to Win Clients, Deliver Great Presentations, and Solve Conflicts at Work(Hyperion) is her second in the “Fine Art” series following her bestselling bookThe Fine Art of Small Talk: How to Start a Conversation, Keep It Going, Build Networking Skills—and Leave a Positive Impression.
Audiences laugh, learn and leave with insightful and informative conversation skills and networking techniques on mastering introductions and remembering names, how to strike up conversations and keep them going, avoid conversation “killers”, develop business relationships and come across as composed and self-assured when interacting with clients, cultivating contacts or making the most of opportunities with decision makers. All programs are interactive; results oriented and tailored to the audience.
