Denver Keynote Speaker Debra Fine - The Fine Art of Small Talk

Keynote speaker, trainer and best selling author, Debra Fine began her career as an engineer, an occupation that allowed her to maintain her natural shyness and avoid situations that required social and personal interactions. Now an internationally recognized conversation expert and business networking guru Debra designs her presentations to teach business networking techniques, conversation skills and mingling tips to both the technically oriented professional and the spouse who is dragged along to conferences, networking opportunities and meetings. Debra’s newly released The Fine Art of the Big Talk: How to Win Clients, Deliver Great Presentations, and Solve Conflicts at Work (Hyperion) is her second in the “Fine Art” series following her best selling book The Fine Art of Small Talk: How to Start a Conversation, Keep It Going, Build Networking Skills—and Leave a Positive Impression.

A 15+ year member of the National Speakers Association, Debra presents her programs to hundreds of audiences around the world to clients that include Cisco Systems, General Electric, NYU Stern Graduate School of Business, COMERICA Banks, Alaska Forum on the Environment, American Bar Association, GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals, and Credit Suisse First Boston. Her best selling first book The Fine Art of Small Talk was met with excellent reviews in the Library Journal, USA Today, and Entrepreneur Magazine. Her recent media appearances include The Today Show, The Early Show, NPR Morning Edition, Fox Business News and CNN and she has been retained as a spokesperson for Whole Foods Market. Debra’s motto, one that applies to each and every person representing an organization or him or herself is: “Every conversation is an opportunity for success.”
