About The 2-Hour Cocktail Party Book
As the subtitle says, this book shows you how to “Build Big Relationships with Small Gatherings.”
You’ll learn how to make new friends and how to strengthen your network of acquaintances.
The book is not about cocktails. In fact, there are no drink recipes inside! I do not even drink alcohol.
Instead, the book is a step-by-step guide about exactly how to host a successful event.
