EP 24: What to Wear For Speaking Engagements


One of the questions I get asked a lot is how I pick out what I wear for speaking engagements. Admittedly, I feel like I have zero fashion sense. I am home all day in sweatpants a t-shirt so I don’t know who I am to be giving you some fashion advice! But I have been speaking for a long time and can help guide you in what outfit choices have worked best for me and the things I have learned along the way, both through success and some serious wardrobe malfunctions. You're probably going to have a good giggle with this episode and hopefully I can help you avoid some of the wardrobe issues I have had while speaking!

Episode takeaways you don’t want to miss:

  • Two things I place as a priority when it comes to picking an outfit for a speaking engagement: comfortability and confidence.

  • Consider your audience and the height of the stage when selecting your outfit.

  • Always, always, always pack an extra outfit to speak in! Wardrobe malfunctions DO happen … trust me, I learned the hard way!

  • Something you can do is wear your brand colors so pictures of you speaking will work easily with your website.
