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.
An upbeat, interactive, motivational speech oR WORKSHOP
How to Connect in Business in 90 Seconds or Less is not a speech about a new business theory; it’s about how you can become more successful in business and life by learning to connect with your customers, clients, colleagues, bosses, and employees in ninety seconds or less.
We can’t choose our neighbors and we can’t make a living selling to our friends. We don’t have the luxury of choosing our colleagues, our managers, our clients or counterparts in other companies. But we can choose how to get cooperation, rather than confrontation or apathy with them.
Audiences learn to:
- Adjust their attitude
- Maximize first impressions
- Engender trust and respect
- Find common ground with strangers
- Arouse the imagination in others
- Know their message is getting through
- Get people talking and keep them talking.

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?
Using true stories and shortcuts Nicholas shows audiences how to locate and navigate their way through and around the endless flow of strangers who hold the keys to all the knowledge, resources and lucky breaks they’ll ever need.
- Familiar Strangers, people you see frequently but never speak to
- Consequential Strangers, people you deal with to make your life and work happen but don’t really know
- Total Strangers, people you didn’t know existed until the moment the met them
- Perfect Strangers, people you haven’t met yet but know darn well they can help you reach your goals and dreams
- Danger Strangers, people who set off you fight or flight response the moment you see them
