It’s Day 288 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project and much of it has been spent on presentation preparation for tomorrow’s “Kick Up Your High Heeled Success” event. With six years of presenting these women’s workshop with my cohort in crime of the good kind, Kay Fittes, I’ve finally learned to pace myself for the two-day marathon. After getting other professional tasks off my plate every day this week, I then devoted time to prepping for the workshop in advance. Since one of my main contributions is the segment on professional packaging, making sure mine is buttoned up is imperative. With decisions about outfit, accessories and hairstyle made, and little things that polish off the look – like my nails (pun intended!) taken care of prior to the night before, my mind and time were freed to focus on workshop content and logistics – like packing my training toolkit and items to promote all things Pink Collar Savvy & Chic. Kay and I were able to set up this afternoon and for the first time ever I didn’t have any unresolved issues with which to contend this evening. Good presentation preparation has enabled me to still blog and get to plenty of rest for “Kick Up Your High Heeled Success”.
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose presenter, training is one of my favorite things to do. I get to sing, share, and equip women with information and insight that will help them to move forward in their careers and lives. Drawing from all of my experiences in the corporate, not-for profit, and entrepreneurial sectors, I build rapport, tell why they should listen – and to me, and then deliver compelling content clothed in my own mess to success stories. Sometimes I get a laugh, others a tear. And always, no matter whether I’m direct about my faith or not, Jesus just seems to show up and touch hearts through the message meant for their minds. Often, it’s the negative stuff I’ve struggled with the most that makes the greatest positive impact on participants…When I look at it from that perspective, I suppose my entire personal and professional journey is presentation preparation – and not just for “Kick Start Your High Heeled Success”.
How can you be Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose about using your personal and professional experiences to present them – formally or informally – in a way that will benefit others?
