How to Create Business & Personal Relationships from Scratch

Building instant rapport with people you meet for business and relationships is not easy. But it is crucial for the success of your business, relationships are how business is done. 

In this special presentation, George Verdolaga shares three powerful strategies you can use right away to make people want to get to know you better and be receptive to hearing you talk about yourself and/or product or service. 

You’ll learn how to:

Approach total strangers and make conversation that’s totally natural and engaging
• Make people feel comfortable around you right away so that you’ll be liked and trusted
• Develop the kind charisma that wins people’s hearts and minds and turns them into friends or clients

Once you learn how to build business or personal relationships from scratch, you'll find it much, much easier to connect with people and get them to do business with you or simply choose to be friends with you. 


George Verdolaga is a speaker, author and workshop facilitator.

As a high school student, George's peers made his life miserable by mercilessly teasing and harassing him every day. Things didn’t get that much better in University, as George became the socially awkward campus figure that very few people wanted as their friend. Once he finished all his studies and went into entrepreneurship, George joined – and eventually led – several business networking groups. This helped him become confident in public and more polished as a speaker. As a result of running several highly successful and profitable businesses, George wrote two books and several courses on how to develop success in your career or business as a result of networking. 

Learn valuable insights from George on how to properly connect with people that you've met for the first time so that you can be known, liked and trusted and subsequently build lasting personal or business relationships.
