What to wear to a leadership simulcast or a training event?

I am super excited because I have a jam packed week of learning ahead of me. Today I attended an Entreleadership simulcast given by Dave Ramsey, based off his new bestseller and next week I will be at a workshop at Cornell!  I am happy to report that I have returned excited and eager to serve you with fabulous new ideas, but the question this morning was what does one wear to a leadership simulcast or a training event anyway? Here are a few tips to follow when planning to attend a training event:

  1. Keep it clean and classy
  2. Dress like you are a student, in this case a student of leadership, you never know who will be in the room you may find a protege or a mentor
  3. Remember why you are there: to learn and network.. not to be in competition, so don't dress so crazy that you complete with the message
  4. Keep accessories simple, the temperature changes so frequently that you will be taking your jacket on and off and you don't want jewelery to get caught on you jacket or name tag.
I kept it simple by adding this color blocked silver and black necklace that I got for $8.80 from forever 21 and to be honest I like how it worked out. I felt pulled together and professional. What do you think?


  1. I like what you post here. If you have some time i´d like you check out my blog and follow me if you really want to.

  2. you can't go wrong with an LBD and some sleek accessories!

  3. Love the look! Great tips! People sleep on Forever 21 for accessories, but clearly they shouldn't. :)
