As part of my seminars, I run an exercise asking delegates what they should be considering before attending business events. After all, no professional or business person would ever dream of attending a client or prospect meeting without doing some preparation and planning. One of the items which is always mentioned is ‘Decide what you’re going to wear’. When the answer comes from a woman it is invariable preceded by, ‘I know it’s a girly thing but……’

It is not a ‘girly thing’, it’s an everybody thing! What you wear speaks volumes for your attitude towards the people you are about to meet. When you dress inappropriately you are telling your fellow guests ‘you don’t care or you couldn’t be bothered.’ Maybe you don’t and maybe you couldn’t which is fine as long as you are happy to take the consequences (which can be either positive or negative). We don’t get a second chance to make a first impression meaning people often judge us before we even open our mouth. ‘If people judge me on what I wear they have to be very shallow and not worth building a relationship with.’ ‘I never wear a tie and I’m not going to start doing so now’. Many people will judge those attitudes as a guide to how you lead your business life in general. By dressing in a suitable manner you are telling the other people in the room you respect them, you do care how you are perceived and you do give others an overall impression of what you think and who you are. This may include being individualist, maverick and even eccentric.

When you’re Sir Richard Branson in his jumpers, Sir Bob Geldorf with his hairstyle I guess you have ‘made it’ and couldn’t give a damn about what others think. To us mere mortals perhaps we should.

I met Jeff recently who told me he had been ‘working the floor’ …the ROOM I gently corrected him. He proceeded to tell me he was talking to someone who was looking around the room during their conversation, the height of rudeness you will agree. He then told me he said “Look at me when I’m talking to you” at which point the conversation ended and they went their separate ways.

My constant advice is when people start looking around they are saying clearly they want to move on. Well do them and yourself a favour and move on. But with a rather more polite comment such as ‘Well it’s nice to meet you enjoy the rest of the event.’

I always remember my mummy saying “2 WRONGS DON’T MAKE A RIGHT”. Took me years to understand what she meant but now I do, it was great advice.

Are you like me who offers their services to businesses much bigger than yours?

You meet or call people who have asked you to make a proposal to help their company with your expertise and knowledge. No this isn’t cold-calling this is them approaching you. AND then what happens? In spite of following up courteously you get radio silence. In quiet moments I think what awful people to ignore me. Why can’t they be as polite as me? It is interesting when I meet people who used to be employed and are now self-employed. Sometimes like Rodney we don’t deserve to progress the relationship.

They soon realise the errors of their ways! What experiences have you / are you having?

Every event you ever attend never has more than 6 types of formats. They are

  1. The person standing alone usually against the wall
  2. Couples standing shoulder to shoulder in a ‘v’ formation
  3. Trios standing in a semi-circle
  4. Couple standing face-to-face
  5. Trios standing in a triangle
  6. Groups of 4 or more standing in a square or a circle depending on the number.

The colours give it away!!

When you try to break into 4, 5 or 6 you are behaving like the burglar committing a house crime!!

These groups are communicating they don’t want you there just at that moment and they tell you this from their body language.

Exceptions to every rule

I encourage you to break the guidelines in the following two circumstances

  1. When you know someone in there. That person will welcome you in, generally (!) and hopefully introduce you to the others. If they don’t ensure you introduce yourself to avoid any embarrassment
  2. If you are hosting an event it is your duty to ‘play host’ and introduce yourself with words such as ‘ “Please may I join you, I am one of the team hosting the event this evening. My name is etc etc….”
