About the Book

Fully revised and updated, the ground-breaking, classic book on improving communication and socializing skills in any situation to succeed in business and life

Have you ever walked into a roomful of strangers and felt uncomfortable? If the answer is yes, you’re not alone! Over 85% of American adults feel the same way. The solution: How to Work a Room, the fully revised Silver Anniversary edition, which has sold over 1.2 million copies worldwide. Drawing from her vast experiences working with top industry leaders such as Coca-Cola, Apple, the NFL, and UnitedHealth, Susan RoAne presents easy-to-implement strategies to exude more confidence, win over your colleagues, and achieve more. Simple and effective, you’ll learn how to:

  • approach someone you don’t know, in person or online
  • remember names (and what to do if you don't)
  • start, maintain, and end conversations… graciously
  • use humor, and when not to do so
  • follow simple but often unspoken rules of etiquette

and more!

If you hope to make a stronger impression, get more use out of your professional connections, or turn a new acquaintance into a valued, long-lasting relationship, How to Work a Room is the vital tool for succeeding in business and life.
