Author and speaker

Nicholas Boothman

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 communicating 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.

If you’ve ever been on the subway or in an elevator, you know the rules. Don’t make eye contact, stay as far away from other people as you can, and whatever you do, don’t talk to strangers.

But what if the rules are wrong?

Coming Soon!

Strangers hold the keys to joy, knowledge and lucky breaks. All you need to succeed is a fresh approach, a burning conviction and an endless flow of strangers.

Using true stories and action steps Boothman shows readers how to create their fresh approach, attach their ideas to something they care  desperately about, and connect with:

Familiar Strangers, people they see frequently but never speak to

Consequential Strangers, people they deal with to make their lives happen but don’t really know

Total Strangers, people they don’t know exist until the moment they meet them

Perfect Strangers, people they haven’t met yet but they know can help make their dreams come true

Danger Strangers, people who, right or wrong, set off their fight or flight response the moment they see them
