You Can Host a Cocktail Party with Nick Gray
Show Notes

I read Nick Gray's book The 2-Hour Cocktail Party and was so inspired, I hosted my own party! If that sounds scary to you, I promise, Nick has a system that makes it very straightforward and less intimidating. He's been hosting and helping people to host cocktail parties and perfected a process that will help set you up for success in your hosting. 

Nick talks through his system including: 

  • Why hosting a party can be so effective
  • The building blocks of hosting your own party
  • Adjustments to make for special circumstances (for example, if you are completely new to town) 
  • How the system applied for the party that I hosted including adjustments I made for my own circumstances, and what went well and what I want to do in the future 
  • Why bringing structure as a host helps your guests to feel more comfortable
