Length of Speech: 45 – 60 Minutes
Learning how to make a fast and favorable impression is a must in today’s fast-paced world.
Experts estimate about 15 percent of your financial success comes from your skills and knowledge and around 85 percent comes from your ability to connect with other people and gain their trust and respect.
Nicholas Boothman shares with his audience new, innovative ways to connect, and explores easy and natural ways to mobilize your body, mind, voice, and — above all – your imagination to maximize the potential in every personal, social or business related relationship.
The power of a Really Useful Attitude
How to overcome hesitation
Open vs. closed body language
The art of synchronizing
How to get people talking and keep them talking
The three sensory preferences and how to read them
How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less is about establishing rapport – that stage between meeting and communicating. Nicholas shows how to subtly synchronize attitude, body language, and voice tone so that you instantly and imperceptibly become someone the other person likes.
Reinforcing these easy-to-learn skills Nick demonstrates how to read the other person’s sensory preferences – most of us are visual, some are kinesthetic, and a minority are auditory. So when you say “I see what you mean” to a visual person or “I get it” to a kinesthetic person or “I hear you” to an auditory you’re really speaking their language.
Along the way the speech covers attitude, words that open a conversation and words that shut it down, eye cues, finding common ground and more.
To make people like you in 90 seconds or less you’ve got to grab their attention and begin to build rapport in two seconds flat. That’s how long it takes people to decide whether or not they like you.
How does Nicholas Boothman know this? From studying the unconscious strategies of more than 700 people who are able to connect, neutralize the fight or flight response, start to engender trust and respect and find common ground—in 90 seconds or less.
“Bring Boothman’s ideas into your organization, your place of work, and they will have a dramatic effect on everything: how you run meetings, how you solve problems, how you connect with clients, how you connect with each other, fun, morale and general health and well-being.” – DELOITTE CONSULTING

How to Make Great Things Happen
in 10-Second Bursts of Crazy Courage
FIND YOUR GIFT. TRUST YOUR GUT. CREATE SOMETHING NEW.
Length of Speech: 45 – 75 Minutes
Ten seconds is all it takes to shift from “I don’t want to do it” to “I’m loving it.” To speak up rather than shut up. To go from waiting by the roadside going nowhere to hopping on a rocket that can speed you to your dreams.
It takes a special type of courage to make these shifts. But it’s the kind of courage you can learn—you don’t have to be born with it. Nicholas calls it Crazy Courage. “Crazy” because crazy is just another word for passionate, creative and spontaneous, and “Courage” because it takes guts to step outside your comfort zone and try new things.
But it doesn’t mean gambling away your life savings or bungee jumping off the Grand Canyon. Crazy Courage is different from ordinary courage because you can develop it in easy, 10-second bursts, and because it’s rooted in people, purpose, projects and passion.
Nicholas shows his audience how to bring these four crucial human elements together to make fear and doubt go out the window, potential and confidence go through the roof, and profits pile up at the door.
Audiences learn how to:
Turn fear into courage
Shake things up
Create purpose-driven projects
Spot new opportunities and lucky breaks
Program their imaginations
Make fast smart-risk/dumb-risk calculations
Profit from their losses
