Beginning with a remarkable event that demonstrates “the relationships trumps quality, price, brand–everything!” Harry highlights seven key areas of focus, with implementable suggestions for earning respect before you meet, communicating “stickier” messages, and making every person feel comfortable and important–the two key emotions you must satifying. “Unbelievable,” one fan responded–and thousands agree. 50 minutes to two hours.
