More than 600 corporations and associations, 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.

Speech – How to Connect in Business in 90 Seconds or Less

When you’re connecting and communicating your ideas to strangers your success depends on making instant, meaningful connections and articulating your messages in ways that are friendly, memorable and easy to understand.

In this speech Nicholas Boothman shows audiences how to use the tools that belong to all of us – face, body, attitude and voice – to make a dazzling first impression, establish immediate rapport and trust and assemble the words that persuade others to act on their ideas virtually and in person.

Audiences learn to make a great first impression, articulate their ideas so they get acted on, connect with the emotions, appear socially smarter.

Speech – When Strangers Come Together 

Everything you need to know told in heart-warming real-life stories.

Talking to strangers isn’t just the right thing to do it’s a matter of survival and a force of nature as old as humanity itself. A single conversation with a stranger can alter the course of your life. It can even change the world.

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?

Professor Thomas Harrell at the Stanford Business School spent twenty years looking for “the success factor” and concluded the number one identifiable predictor of success, across all realms of life, is “social extroversion”—the ability to speak up.

In this stirring interactive speech Nicholas gives dozens of real-life examples of chance encounters between complete strangers that paid off in business, life and love. He demonstrates how to recognize and connect with the five different types of strangers virtually and in person and turn first impressions into lasting relationships.

Speech – StorySpeak – Because Facts Tell but Stories Sell

When Warren Buffett, the second richest man in the US and holder of the unofficial title “America’s Greatest Storyteller” was asked, “Do you enjoy your work?” He replied, “I tap-dance to work.” That’s StorySpeak. He credits his ability to create word pictures and short stories that quickly simplify complicated concepts as a big part of his success.

StorySpeak invigorates brands, stimulates marketing, sways attitudes and opinions and arouses growth. The names PayPal, Apple and Windows are all StorySpeak. Mohammed Ali’s “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” Pure StorySpeak.

Since the beginning of time, thousands of free-spirited, everyday people use StorySpeak to capture audiences, pitch and present ideas, problem solve, inspire loyalty and open hearts to new horizons.
