It took me a while to wrap my brain around this book concept. I'm not a huge fan of idle talk and empty conversation. I rolled my eyes at many of the icebreakers people have used "on" me or at events I've attended. It took a while for me to make this topic my own in alliance with my SpeakStrong Method.
But thanks to my wonderful collaborative community, including my eventual co-author Diane, (who friended me by reaching out with icebreakers), things came into focus. I discovered the power of icebreakers with purpose.
The next challenge was the fact that I wanted to write a book that included both conversational icebreakers, meeting icebreakers and event icebreakers. We found a way to make that work too.
And here it is. Diane and I are proud of it, and hope it opens doors for you.

"I picked up your Speak Strong book at the ASQ Audit Division conference. Just wanted to say thank you for your insights. I am pleased to say that I am already doing some of the positive things in your book.
