Talk is cheap, easy even…. and we can all take it for granted.
Those conversations that we begin, and we believe in, are essential to paving to way to new connections and essential networking. Putting in the extra effort to be a part of good conversations today, prepares us for exciting possibilities tomorrow.
So, giving each other the tools we need to be clearer, stronger and at our mental best, whatever that means for each person, it’s what we promote for you, our business connections, communities, and our team.
Small Talk PODCAST is based in Henley-in-Arden in Warwickshire. It is the brainchild of Nathalie Luckett, a media director who has been working for over 20 years with young people and broadcast executives, producing stories for radio and TV.
She believes that in order to make the important 'first step connections' with others, new business's or existing business we need to get the first step right!
Small Talk Podcast can bring those new connections together by producing a finely tuned podcast for internal or external purposes leading to a deeper conversation essential for successful networking.
It can also be used for company new starters, new sales pitches and even as a retention tool for existing customers.
Studies show that small talk is responsible for nearly one-third of our speech even if some cultures participate in it more than others. It’s hard to believe that these initial preambles can have such an impact on a judge of character or even on how we categorize relationships as friendships, work colleagues, or acquaintances. However, being custodians of our own conversations by using small talk allows us to tap into relationship dimensions of power, solidarity, formality, and function using what linguists call topic management to lead conversations toward intended outcomes, like business or networking pitches.
