Learn how to Master Small Talk in Sydney.

Making small talk isn’t as easy as it sounds; it isn’t as challenging as it sounds either. Conversing with strangers can be awkward, stilted, even painful, but there is an art to it, and it can be mastered!

There’s nothing small about small talk. You may think that making small talk is just a way to pass the time or avoid awkwardness but many great friendships and relationships have started with a small talk!

Course testimonials:

  • said: Would definitely recommend!

  • said: It was a really effective course that taught me how to start, maintain & end small talk. The course presenter was passionate, knowledgeable & humorous which made the learning experience very rewarding.

  • said: The exercises/ role play where we can practise with other class members was extremely valuable. I wish there was another session - the course to be 3 weeks instead of 2. John is excellent tutor, he is very engaging, fun and very relatable
