They are about how you can become more profitable in business and in life by fully-connecting with your customers, colleagues, bosses, employees, family, friends and even total strangers – in 90 seconds or less.

Accelerated Workshop

Length of Workshop 2.5 hours or 5 hours

Nicholas’ How to Connect in Business in 90 Seconds or Less workshop shows participants how to figure out just who and what they’re dealing with and how to fully-connect, motivate, influence, and convince them.

People decide how they feel about you in the first 2 seconds of seeing you. If they like you they see the best and look for reasons to say “yes”. If they don’t, the opposite is true.

As much as 85% of your financial success come from your ability to engender trust and respect in other people.

Approximately 55% of face-to-face communication comes from what you see, 38% from voice tone and just 7% from the words we use.

Nicholas teaches how to be authentic by making sure your body language, voice tone and words are all sending the same message.

Participants learn how to:


choose the right attitude to set the mood for successful communication


build trust and respect by minimizing the unconscious differences between themselves and others


replace self-limiting communication patterns with powerful new ones


get people talking and keep them talking


understand how different people communicate and adapt to them like a chameleon


articulate their business ideas in a simple, memorable, conversational manner


connect with the imagination to capture the heart


read body language and respond to feedback

It doesn’t matter how good you are at what you do, your success is always going to be governed by how well you connect with people.

Whether you’re selling a service, inspiring a team or recommending the lamb chops over the chili con carne: if you can’t fully-connect with other people you’d better lookout – because your competition can.

“I went back and checked and it turns out that every single person that got a deal on Dragon’s Den and Shark Tank was able to connect and articulate their business ideas in 90 seconds or less.”


Keynote Speaker Nicholas Boothman in action:

More than 600 corporations, thousands of small businesses, and six of the world’s leading business schools know the better you are at connecting and convincing face-to-face, with all kinds of different people, the faster you’ll pull ahead of the competition.

That’s why they contacted Nicholas Boothman.
