Nicholas Boothman

Author, Communications & Rapport Expert, Motivational Speaker


In business as well as life, the failure to build trust and rapport can be insurmountable, while the rewards of a good first impression and positive communication are almost immeasurable. To compete in today's marketplace companies like Fairmont Hotels, AT&T, Washington Mutual, The Mayo Clinic, Re/Max and Merrill Lynch recognized that connecting with the human side of clients and colleagues and making trusting, durable, connections was essential to their success. They also knew that the quality of people's relationships is the # 1 factor for job satisfaction and happiness.


Nicholas Boothman has spent more than 25 years studying how people communicate, connect, and collaborate.

Today, he is called "one of the leading experts in face-to-face communication in the world" by the New York Times and Good Morning America says, "his book is my bible."

Nicholas has taught his revolutionary technique of "Rapport by Design" to thousands of corporations, colleges and universities around the world including both the Harvard and London Business schools.

In 1982 he founded Corporate Images, and created powerful corporate presentations for almost every well- known company in North America, from Coke to Carlsberg, and Suzuki to Sea-World. He went on to form Persuasion Technology Group and was chosen to speak at "Leadership from the Ground Up," a global closed-circuit event, along with Tom Peters, Ted Turner, Sir Richard Branson, Stephen Covey, and Ken Blanchard.

A former fashion and advertising photographer who dealt with hundreds of new faces a week for clients like AT&T, Revlon and Coca-Cola he now shows businesses around the world how to naturally connect and build trust, from first impressions to profitable relationships, and all the communicating in-between.

A Licensed Master-Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Nicholas is the author of 4 best-selling books, How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less, How to Connect in Business in 90 Seconds or Less, How to Make Someone Fall in Love with You in 90 Minutes or Less and Convince Them in 90 Seconds--

Great companies make great things happen. They create something that is missing from the market, shake up the industry, and make sure their employees and customers feel good in the process.

To do this they combine people, purpose, projects and passion into a coherent direction. What emerges is a burning will to thrive rather than just survive. What comes out of that, is an uncanny ability to spot and act upon so-called “lucky breaks.”   +

Lucky breaks are vital tools for this innovation and growth, and they are real. Not one single Fortune 500 company, scientist, billionaire or celebrity will dispute this. Lucky breaks are right up there alongside perseverance, a clear direction and hard work as major contributors to their success.

When you compare the behavior of so-called lucky, and unlucky people and companies, you begin to see that lucky breaks are not really about luck at all, they are much more to do with people, purpose, projects and passion, in other words:

1) who you know, where you go, what you want and how you think;
2) what you do, how you do it and why you do it;
3) your willingness to break barriers and step out of your comfort zone;
4) a knack for turning bad luck into good luck


In this action-packed session participants learn how to:

  • spot, and act upon, chance encounters and events
  • take control of themselves and their thinking
  • summon their strengths
  • breakdown barriers and confidently step out of their comfort zone
  • build risks with well-formed outcomes
  • rally internal and external resources
  • trigger and manage risks

How to Make Great Things Happen is designed for:

  • entrepreneurs and franchisees who need to quantum leap ahead of the competition 
  • leaders and managers who need to move fast and take advantage of economic upheavals
  • anyone stuck in a rut knowing they are capable of more
  • people anxious to re-invent themselves
  • everyone who wants to turn the odds in their favor when faced with challenges, obstacles and restlessness
  • students, graduates, teenagers and anyone who wants a head start in life

Be it fear of rejection, upbringing, embarrassment, losing control or loss of income, we make unconscious split-second limiting decisions and miss out on opportunities to grow and prosper on a daily basis. Making Lucky Breaks changes the mindset of audiences so they start to find, and act upon these opportunities immediately.  --
