Conversation with Nick Gray: The Low-Maintenance Way to Connect with Friends and Make New Friendships

Have you ever noticed how difficult it’s become to make new friends as you get older? It was just so much easier when we were kids.

“TAG. You’re it. And now we’re friends.”

If it were only that easy. Do it now, and you might catch a case. Do this instead….

Join us on this podcast episode as we dive into the world of adult friendships and hosting parties with guest Nick Gray.

Nick is the author of The Two Hour Cocktail Party, a book that provides a step-by-step guide on hosting successful events. Nick shares his insights on developing meaningful friendships as an adult and the role hosting dinner parties, and events can play in cultivating these relationships.

(No cocktails necessary)

We discuss how he came to write this book and how it has helped him and others build connections. Nick has years of experience hosting events and provides us with valuable tips and tricks on making them successful. From setting expectations and defining the time commitment for events to using icebreakers to get conversations flowing, Nick has a wealth of knowledge to share with tips and tricks that make even the shy come out of their shell.

We also discuss how we both use social proof to promote his events and the importance of creating a vibe at these gatherings. No one wants to come to a party where they’re the only ones there.

Whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, this episode has something for everyone looking to deepen their friendships and host successful events.
