SLMA Radio: Talking to Kay Hunter about Holiday Party Behavior
Women in Business: Your party image – stop embarrassing yourself.
Susan Finch, Director of Online Services for the SLMA, has embarked on a new once a month series of Women in Business. The second guest is image consultant, Kay Hunter.
Kay is a corporate trainer and personal image consultant. Kay works with a vast array of people and companies. She has worked with students, pageant contestants, doctors, business executives, entrepreneurs and mothers. Many companies have asked her to speak to their staff in groups, or to provide one-on-one consulting.
Prior to launching her company, Kay worked as a Senior Human Resources Executive for 18 years. She understands the challenges of dressing for business and how it can directly affect the bottom line of a company and a person’s personal success. She has the expertise to put people at ease, while dealing with sensitive situations, and ultimately motivating people to be their best.
The show will cover some delicate; but elephant-size important topics of our personal brand while attending corporate events such as holiday parties, trade-shows, networking events and business meetings where food and alcohol are served.
Kay Hunter will cover some great tips of dressing for the body you are in NOW, not leading with “the twins,” how to be a desirable party guest with hopes of another invitation, and remembering that all behavior is very public thanks to social media’s “over sharing” tendencies.
What impression are you leaving with others as far as your personal brand and your company’s image? You may not be as charming as you think?
Are you a conversation hog? Do you monopolize the host of an event seizing as a sales opportunity? Those events are NOT the place for selling, it’s the place for relationship building to allow you to have the opportunity to present your widgets in the near future.
