Hi Tom: I enjoyed your recent newsletter, and had a comment
about a man keeping his tie straight during a speaking
engagement http:www.antion.com/ezinebackissues.htm v2n8.
A similar topic applies to women.

At one of my former places of employment, part of the new
employee orientation was sitting through several hours of
a customer service presentation on video tape.  In addition
to being a painfully unanimated speaker, the presenter wore
a suit with the biggest, loudest scarf around her neck and
over her shoulder.  All of us poor souls in the room watching
were left with no recollection of the content of the
presentation, but a indelible image of the infamous scarf!
As you know, not only should the length of a speech be
appropriate for the audience, but the speaker should make sure
that their appearance is not distracting.

Thanks for all the great tips.
Karen Puckett

Tom’s reply: Thanks Karen for your input. Also, keep in mind
that the beautiful scarf you referred to might be perfect if
you were on a big stage in front of a large audience. Always
keep your delivery medium in mind.
