About the Author

Laura Schwartz Speaker, Author and International Television Commentator Millions of Americans wanted to tell President Clinton what to do everyday, and Laura Schwartz did. Laura Schwartz, a former Special Assistant to the President and The White House Director of Events for the Clinton Administration, created and executed more than 1000 White House events including 12 State arrival ceremonies and dinners, America s Millennium Celebration and NATO s 50th Anniversary. While producing the President s events on the world stage, leaving no room for error, Ms. Schwartz demonstrated the Presidency s ability to inspire a nation and the world through powerful events. As an eight-year veteran of the Administration, prior to being named The Director of Events in 1997, Ms. Schwartz served as The White House Director of Television and The Midwest Press Secretary for The President. Following the Administration, Laura traveled the world with Former President Clinton for his Foundation and Global Initiative. In 2004, Laura served as a Senior Advisor to John Kerry for the Kerry-Edwards Presidential Campaign. Today, Ms. Schwartz shares her unique perspective on face to face networking, politics and leadership on the CBS Early Show domestically and internationally on Good Morning London (GMTV) throughout the UK, the BBC World News and Sir David Frost s Frost Over The World broadcast to 120 million viewers on Al Jazeera English. Prior to joining CBS, Laura was the on air Political Analyst on the Fox News Channel 2004-2007 and was the Special Correspondent to Larry King Live and CNN for the presidential primaries 2007-2008. Laura has also appeared on MSNBC and the PBS acclaimed Lehrer NewsHour, Sirius, XM Satellite Radio and 2UE Sydney. Ms. Schwartz has been a featured expert in the New York Times and USA Today. Ms. Schwartz is well known to corporations, industry associations, service and professional organizations and educational institutions for her lecture and individual coaching series in which she delivers positive and motivational message. Ms. Schwartz s most popular seminar, Eat, Drink and Succeed! The Networking Power of Social Events,© also the title of her new networking book, explores where bridges can be built in professional and personal social scenes, using the individual s power as a guest or a host to increase their client base retention, land an incredible job, inspire volunteerism and to expand their responsibilities while creating professional and personal profitability and success. Laura believes that although a job might be 9-5, careers are 24/7 and we are always and in all places, an ambassador of what and who we represent professionally as well as ourselves, personally. Eat, Drink and Succeed! delivers those tools to ensure success. In 2001, Ms. Schwartz created, White House Strategies, an event, media, political and message consultancy. Serving corporations, industry associations, cultural institutions, service organizations, political figures, and aspiring entrepreneurs, Ms. Schwartz uses her unique experiences and strategies to generate ideas to develop and deliver her client s objectives through business, social, media and industry events and creative and targeted messaging. In the Fall of 2007, Ms. Schwartz was honored by the American University, Washington DC with their Leadership in Education award. In January 2009, Laura was invited to speak and debated at the prestigious Oxford Union in England on the Foreign Policy Legacy of the United States. Ms. Schwartz is based in Chicago where she operates White House Strategies and travels extensively both domestically and internationally for speaking engagements and with her clients, empowering them to unleash their limits by recognizing and embracing their highest personal and professional potential.

The author, Laura Schwartz came to speak to a conference I attended and I loved her in person and can hear her voice as I read Eat, Drink and Succeed. This has been a great book for me in my career and life. Her talk made the conference more productive for me and having her book I've continued getting more out of each day even after I returned home!

Please know that I’m thankful for what I have, including my job. Additionally, I do not dub myself a guru and am only sharing what piques my interest. However, I purchased Eat, Drink, and Succeed: Climb Your Way To The Top Using The Networking Power of Social Events by Laura Schwartz as a way to help me socially on both a professional and personal scale. This book is a godsend to me because it gives ideas on how to network and/or socialize in my spare time (vital because it is a no-no at my job). Eat, Drink, & Succeed by Laura Schwartz contains the following information; Building The Inner Circle Bridge (page 53), the wealth of information available in free city magazines, newspapers,online resources, conference programs (starts on page 86), the power of being introduced by someone else as well as introducing someone else (pages 127), avoiding gossip and asking someone’s age and salary (page 155), a checklist (page 177) and much more.

5 Stars: The networking tips in Eat, Drink & Succeed are so valuable in my career. It truly is not "what someone else can do for you but what you can do for them." After reading this I have implemented the author's take on it and have seen myself really grow my professional relationships - a great tool at this pivotal point of my life.

I may be retired but I'm more involved than EVER! Eat, Drink & Succeed is fun to read, full of great tips for any age and I'm putting it all into action! Fun for me and for my grandchildren! It is a recipe for success and an example of how to treat people--with respect by showing interest in the other person and not being self-absorbed.
