How to be a good student at a Conversation Camp

A good student at a Conversation Camp is someone who isn’t afraid to be challenged.

We all have areas of our lives that we might be dissatisfied with: whether it’s never closing a date with an attractive woman or a sale that could be career changing. Yet being dissatisfied with an aspect of your life, whether it is in dating, socializing or business, doesn’t mean that you’re bad at it.

Students of our Conversation Camps are just driven to be better.

You want to be an expert conversationalist and never miss an opportunity again to get that business deal or date again.

If you are unhappy with achieving anything less than your full potential, then a Charisma Arts Conversation Camp is where you need to be to hone your skills.

The skills taught at a conversation camp are applicable to all sorts of social situations including Dating, Business, Sales and Social Skills .

The camp offers you expert training and new theories for personal advancement from our Head Honcho, ‘Self-help’ Guru, and all round Conversation Master Wayne ‘Juggler’ Elise. Famed as a contributing author and character in the best-seller ‘The Game’, Wayne is a slightly reformed Master Pick Up Artist whose teachings have influenced a generation of men to be charismatic, conversational mavericks.

Since then he has broadened his unique, and entertaining, style of teaching to include political and business coaching,  and writing articles  for ‘Psychology Today’ and ‘Esquire’.

During a camp Wayne not only teaches you the practical application of his ideas, but also responds to your individual concerns about where you need to improve most. Every Conversation camp is different and tailored to the needs of the elite group that is being taught.

We want you to participate.

To get the most out of your experience, and to excel as a Charisma Arts client, you are encouraged to participate in role-playing, conversational games and enactments of challenging real life scenarios. Luckily this learning curve occurs in the comfort, and controlled learning environment, of an up-market hotel conference room.

“It is quite amazing that he can just talk in a way that captures your imagination and draws you into wanting to participate in the conversation”- Jack the Stripper Alumni.

Our camps are designed to fit our clients’ needs, and structured to optimize your time with Wayne or our instructors.

After two days a good student will be armed with practical guidance (and usually a hefty amount of notes) on how to conquer the dating, sales, business or social skills challenges you may face.

But we don’t want you just to be a good student.

A great student will not only have all the practice and notes they need to succeed, but they will turn their experience at a Conversation Camp into personal success.

By signing up to a Conversation Camp you’ve already proven that you’re the kind of person that is driven towards achieving your goals; all we do is give you the tools to achieve them.

The Connections Can Find You

I believe in the Nostradamus theory of attraction.  

Nostradamus was a 16th century seer.  His present-day followers believe that he predicted big world events such as the Great Fire of London, Napoleon, World War II, and even the 911 terrorist attacks. Indeed when I read some of his words I can sort of see where those followers are coming from - just got to read into the imagery a bit. Maybe I can find next week's lottery numbers.  

However what I have also learned about Nostradamus was that he babbled non-stop and people wrote down everything he said. With countless manuscripts full of his lucid visions, its easy to find something that sounds like a modern-day event. 

Nostradamus was a ladies man, I figure.  I want you to be Nostradamus.  I want you to understand that if you reveal enough about yourself a woman will find something to connect with.  

Most guys ask questions, make 'God' statements and try to force a connection with a woman:

Him: "Do you work out?"
Her: "Yeah, I run."
Him: "Running is great."

Her: "I hate traffic."
Him: "Yeah, traffic sucks."

Her: "Where are all the confident men?"
Him: "You're right.  Confident men are more attractive."

These are examples of ways that guys attempt to connect with a woman.  To my ear they sound fake.  Why? Because there is nothing unique or personal about the guy's words.  They're just pleasant-sounding mush. It's not believable that he agrees with her.  When a guy approaches a woman and tries to relate, she becomes suspicious.  It just doesn't ring true. 

It's much better if you allow connection to find you.  Nostradamus was great at this.  He blubbered on so much that connections with real-life, future-events actually found him. 

Think about everything that you know, think and feel.  Think about the sum of your individual experiences.  Now pick out any woman you find attractive.  May as well take the girl on the cover of Vogue magazine.  She looks perfect.  Now consider this.  If you and this girl took ten minutes to write down twenty likes, dislikes and vulnerabilities I bet I could take both lists and find at least five commonalities.  Maybe you are both rabid Tennis fans.  Maybe you share the same favorite novel.  Maybe you both need an occasional rainy day.  Maybe she is attracted to Katherine Heigl, just like you. Those commonalities would be authentic, unforced and... cool.  

So WWND?  What exactly would Nostradamus do?  Better yet, what will you do?

I think you should persistently talk in the 'I' perspective.  I have faith that if you express yourself often enough, in a personal manner, you will never have to try to connect with a woman, the connection will find you.
