Gleaned from Susan C Young’s new book, this program delivers tips and tools to help audience members prevent social mishaps, lost business, rejection, low self-esteem, failure, career complacency, and lifelong frustration. With high energy and easy relatability, Susan teaches how to build and strengthen long-term mutually beneficial relationships, lead with confidence, communicate with courage, and ensure their impressions—from the first to the last—are positive and substantial.
