Newton will be doing a series of talks at Saint James on Venice Luxury Boutique Hotel in Morningside, starting on Thursday 2 August from 10am to 12pm, on The Art of Conversation. Claire will present The Art of Conversation, a well-researched, thought-provoking presentation, followed by a luxurious morning high tea. Peter Enslin will play a selection of easy-listening songs on the piano.
Claire Newton is a qualified psychologist, speaker, trainer and coach. "Learning how to converse well and easily with others gives people more confidence when handling both business and social events," explained Newton. "Mastering this skill is an important life skill. In this talk I cover the fundamentals of what it really means to be a good conversationalist, how to make effective introductions and how to escape from the boring individual who insists on dominating your attention.
We also touch on non-verbal language."
