You saying I should leave the Armani Suit at home?
I had a Friday business meeting at a bank in Hawaii some years ago. Put on my 3 piece suit and walked in. Everyone had on Aloha shirts.
About a month later I returned to the same bank on a Thursday with my NEW Aloha shirt. Everyone had on suits. Turns out that it was a tradition in Hawaii to dress down on Fridays.
As Business Development Manager one friday I had a meeting with a client, our sales manager and two sales people.
Five guys three in suits the Client, Me and the Sales manager
1 Sales Guy had shorts and a polo shirt
The other Sales Guy however worn torn jeans and teeshirt which said "I'm so happy I could SH*T"
It still makes me smile time I think about the look on his face when I tapped him on the should and said "are you ready to give your report to ** " the largest printer manufacturer in the world.
It was a classic it was also the sale managers fault for not telling them that they would have to be in the meeting.
Expect an awkward moment or two during the first few moments of meeting another member while you're both trying to realign the image of the person in front of you with the mental image you've made during your reading here.
Saying: Hello, NFFC! Really nice to meet you!
Thinking: This gal is NOT 23 years old!
