Sorry, I was agreeing with you. And disagreeing with the person who said dressing smartly reeks of desperation. I’ve never heard such rubbish. Keynote speakers wear suits most of the time. Id hardly call people in that position desperate.

Deary me. A couple of us are having a friendly exchange of ideas and you barge in with these immature two posts?
Sort yourself out and come back when you are prepared to be civil..

Quote From Tudor_Queen:
I don't know, but there is a difference between dressing nicely in general (what I said) and turning up somewhere dressed smartly when everyone else is casual (what you said). The latter is probably going to be painful, whereas the former is common sense when one wants to make a good impression. My point is: putting an effort in can go a long way. For instance, when a presenter at a conference is well dressed (smartly or nicely or whatever you want to call it), in my view, it forms part of their overall presentation. And, in my own subjective view, a business card is along similar lines - can be quite impressive.


I am still not sure what you mean in terms of the difference between dressing nicely and dressing smartly but I appear to have gravely offended yet another in a long line of tedious snowflakes in butterfly20 who can't handle a simple difference of opinion in a reasonable manner. This really is a modern day scourge. I have no wish to waste my time on this type of person so I will bail from the discussion.

It’s a public forum? And I’m the snowflake when you’re offended by a complete stranger?
Sorry for causing offence either way. OP, let us know how the business cards go down and good luck with the job hunting.

Hi again folks! I'm glad it isn't such a controversial view - I misunderstood your post butterfly20! But yes, good to have differing opinions (otherwise we'd all be dressed the same - hehe!). Good luck LeslieM - let us know what you decide on!
