When you’re a new speaker, or just starting to consider speaking at conferences or user groups
for the first time, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by all the things you worry
about when delivering a talk.
For years I’ve avoided talking about the topic of what to wear when presenting. I didn’t want to cover it because I didn’t want people to think that I only worried about this topic because I was a woman. I also didn’t want other women to inherit any of my neuroses around deciding what to wear. I’m the sort of person who always enjoyed thinking long and hard about what to wear the next day at work, and I know that’s not how everyone works.
