Packing and Preparing for She Speaks
It was great hearing your sweet voices last night on our pre-conference call. I can hardly wait to meet each of you face to face! Micca Campbell did such a good job clarifying things for you as you put your talks together. Check out her site if you missed any of the details.

Also remember to check out the Speakers Track on the Proverbs 31 website. This page will also give you more details on preparing your talks and what you can expect from your small group evaluations.

Both Micca and I are available to continue to answer your questions and to serve you.

Here are the notes I promised on last night's call.

What should I pack for the conference:

Patience - There are bound to be a few hiccups and oopsies.

Jacket, sweater or pashmina wrap – The hotel is chilly, some think it is cold.

Tote bag or briefcase – You will be given a notebook with the handouts for your breakout sessions. There are so many wonderful resources you are going to want to take home.

Extra Pens -

Comfy Shoes – You'll be doing a lot of walking from your room to the Conference Center.

Business Cards – They are a great way to connect with the ladies you will be meeting.

Extra Money to purchase Resources - Leave some extra room in your suitcase for Resources and other purchases.

Earplugs – Your roommate might snore.

Please Leave all "Bossy Boots Attitudes" at Home

What should I wear when presenting my Two Talks:

Don't be afraid to let your clothes tell a little about your personality, but don't allow your wardrobe to be the only thing your audience remembers.

Dress as if you had been hired to speak for a real event.

· Wear colors that are complimentary to you.

Be sure your hair doesn’t cover your eyes or your face.

Choose a light perfume or fragrance.

Basic manicure and good hygiene are important.

You don’t have to have a professional manicure/pedicure,

just be sure fingernails and toenails are clean and well groomed.

Proper fitting undergarments are important.

Choose clothes that fit properly and make you feel comfortable.

You don’t want to wear clothes that have bulging buttons or zippers.

· I’m going to suggest that you not wear sleeveless outfits, see-through or sheer fabrics.

Don’t choose wild prints.

· No headlights please! The hotel is chilly – some think it is down right cold.

Be sure you don’t show too much cleavage.

You don't want your "sisters" coming out to play.

Choose accessories that show your personality,

but don’t wear jewelry that makes noise.

· Check to make sure the heels and toes of your shoes are polished and in good shape.

· Don’t wear jeans, t-shirts or flip flops when presenting your two talks.

Remember the best rule of thumb:

Don’t wear anything that will distract you or your audience from your message.

That's it friends. I'm so excited to meet each of you and will continue to pray for you as you prepare for this wonderful conference.

Zoe, sleeveless is ok if I am wearing a sweater too right? I stay cold and I am planning a sweater with each outfit. They are basically all pretty sleeveless tops with a coordinating sweater and nice pants and dress sandals.
