Today’s guest is a best-selling author and a sought-after keynote speaker. Known as “The Mingling Maven®,” she gives her multi-generational audiences the required tools, techniques and strategies they need to connect and communicate in today’s global business world. Her practical, informative, and interactive presentations are known for what The San Francisco Chronicle calls her “dynamite sense of humor.”
A former teacher, she now lectures at major universities and keynotes for Fortune 500 companies. Over 25 years ago she released her groundbreaking best-seller, “How to Work a Room®,” and is now considered the undisputed and original networking and conversation expert. That was the first of her seven best-selling books and she has sold over a million books worldwide. Nearly three decades later, she continues to shape the industry she launched.
