DRESS FOR SUCCESS

Doing Business In Business Casual

Description: Like a Lycra skirt from the mid-90s, has your firm’s lenient policy of “business casual” been stretched beyond its limits? Focusing on how everyone has a brand message that must be periodically assessed, “The Business of Business Casual” helps attendees recognize—and refine—their own brand image for the betterment of their careers. (And the relief of the C-suite.)

• Considering how quickly casual can slip into something more sloppy
• Dealing with the challenges of summer weather—and the chills of winter also
• Discussing the dangers of clothing that is too snug or revealing
• Avoiding the rut of “khakis and a polo”
• Remembering what is on your feet counts, too

• Devising a personal action plan that includes the seven staples your closet should contain
