Filling the Glass


Real World Tactics and Motivation for Building Relationships, Augmenting Productivity & Increasing Job Satisfaction

 “One of the Seven Essential Popular Business Books.” is how Today’s Librarian magazine described Barry Maher’s book that inspired this session.  ‘Filling the Glass’ is the antidote to presentations that are entertaining but full of “let’s all think happy thoughts and everything will be wonderful” fluff. It is chocked full of nuts and bolts content for building relationship, augmenting productivity and increasing your job satisfaction. Yet it’s real-world motivational, even inspirational. This session is perfect for the most cynical veteran AND the most starry-eyed (or the most discouraged) novice.

  • Jay Conrad Levinson, author of Guerrilla Marketing and Guerrilla Selling, calls this material, "Uplifting, enlightening and inspiring . . . brimming with insights."
  • Meeting Professionals International adds, "Occasionally blunt, always honest . . . Maher helps us fill our own glass through a skillful mix of case studies, tips, tactics and hard-headed, reality-based inspiration."


  • The single most effective relationship building strategy;
  • How to connect instantly with customers and coworkers;
  • The simple secret to overcoming innumerable communication problems;
  • Practical techniques for increasing enjoyment and work/life balance
