Here’s a best practices for all you speakers, trainers, and presenters.  Bring an extra shirt.

I’m in Leavenworth, WA about to give a training on leadership, team building, and goal setting.  I am just getting into my suit with about 2 hours to go before start time.  I avoid eating breakfast with my “good clothes” to miss the inevitable spillage.  Here’s a new one…

I put on my favorite blue mock sweater to go with my black suit.  I love that outfit.  To my horror, I notice a tear on the seam of the sweater under my left armpit!  OUCH!  I brought no other shirts other than the golf shirt I wore to drive in yesterday and that won’t work.  After a call to my wife, she assures me it won’t tear further and I don’t need to rush and uy a new shirt.  I guess I’m wearing my jacket all day.

The morale of the story is this…

Bring an extra dress shirt to your presentations.  You never know when you will spill, stain, or tear.  That will now be added to my checklist!

Cheers,
