Katrina Razavi – The Secrets of Charisma, Influence and Confident Communication

Have you ever wondered why sometimes you are the life of the party and other times you feel like an awkward junior high student talking to the popular kids?

My friend Katrina Razavi has the answer for you! She’s spent YEARS perfecting her techniques for effective communication, rock star charisma, and Jedi-like influence and today she’s going to share it all with you!

As a former introvert, she learned how to flex her “extrovert muscle” and connect with influencers on a profound and meaningful level. She has leveraged these skills to pitch in front of top Silicon Valley VC’s, approach VIP’s like Marc Cuban, Arianna Huffington, and Magic Johnson and EVEN go to VIP events like Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s engagement party (now I’m really jealous!).


In this exclusive interview you’ll learn:

  • The most common things you see people do WRONG in social situations!
  • How to keep conversations flowing naturally, even if you feel awkward right now.
  • Useful “Conversational Cue’s” and Katrina’s “3’S” technique!
  • How to master your “Power Pose” and convey confident body language.
  • How to shut up that negative inner voice (you know, the one that gets in the way ALL the time).
