God Is In The Details

The architect Mies van der Rohe famously said,

“God is in the details.”

As a keynote speaker, there are MANY

details that go into the profession.

One essential, often overlooked item I consider:

coordinating my outfit to work well with the stage set.

On May 2, I delivered a keynote presentation

to 1,600 people in Nashville, TN.

Having done some research,

I learned the colors of the stage set decor:

white, green and blue.

Given that this was a highly physical performance,

I needed a certain type of outfit

so before I left, back to Broadway I went . . .

 

visiting my favorite store

for movement clothing: Capezio Dance.

I explored different options

looking for what would work well

with the client’s stage design.

Below is the final result.

Ta da!

Oh—and another other key detail

especially important for women:

Hair and make-up.

A funny part of the Nashville story

(though not so funny at the time):

the hair stylist we’d hired

to show up at 5:30am

didn’t show.

By 6:00am, she still was AWOL

and not responding to any

texts, calls or messages.

So my CMO/COO

—the one and only Ashley Zink—

came over from her hotel room to mine

to blow out and curl my hair.

We laughed a lot since

neither of us is a stylist,

but you do whatever it takes to

Risk Forward and Rock The Room,
