The Fine Art of Building Business Relationships and Expanding Networks:

One Conversation at a Time


Live Webinar - 1.5 PDHs


Young Engineers - Join us at Union 32 for the webinar with social to follow




I get it. I used to be an engineer and I understand that striking up a conversation with someone you don't know can feel awkward and intimidating. However, it doesn't have to be that way. Join me for this fast-paced, informative webinar. Together we'll learn the tools to develop and cultivate outstanding conversation skills and business networking techniques that will result in engaging new acquaintances, build rapport and increase visibility. Learn how to turn every conversation into an opportunity for success.

Attend this webinar and gain confidence in your conversations as we cover how to:

  • Strike up conversations and keep them going
  • Remember names and master introductions
  • Avoid "conversation killers"
  • Exit conversations with grace
  • Come across as composed and self-assured when interacting with decision makers at meetings, networking functions and other industry-related gatherings




Debra Fine's education and previous career as an engineer inspire her programs focused on conversation skills, networking techniques and rapport-building tools for developing relationships. Debra is a 20+ year member of the National Speakers Association presenting to audiences around the world that include Google, Toyota, Spectra Energy, PCL Construction and the National Association of Electronic Distributors. Her bestselling first book The Fine Art of Small Talk was joined by her second in the Fine Art series: The Fine Art of the Big Talk along with her recently released: Beyond Texting: The Fine Art of Face to Face Communication for Teenagers, all published and translated in over two dozen countries. A regular Huff Post blogger, Debra’s recent media appearances include The Today Show, The Early Show, NPR Morning Edition, Fox Business News and CNN.
