Sinterklaas talk, Teusday December 11th 2007

The Female Faculty Network Twente is inviting you to a ‘Sinterklaas’ talk and ‘borrel’:

Personal styling in a professional environment

by Sandra Dierx from AB Personal Styling

On 11th December from 14.30 till 17.00 hrs.

in building the Drienerburght, TSM-room

The interactive lecture / workshop with personal advice will be from 14.30 till 17.00 hrs. and will end with a borrel.

One of the tasks of the FFNT is to professionalize women at the university. Also adequate appearance and styling is an aspect of being professional.

The lecture is about the importance of appearance and the first impression which lasts only thirty seconds. What impression do you give? And does this fit to your self image? We show you which effect clothing can have on your professional environment. What do colours do with you and your environment? Which colours give you a more friendly appearance, which make you more distant? What are the pitfalls and fashion faults? A number of ladies will be selected where we analyze the clothing. We also tell about the relevance of good posture. During the presentation the focus is on practical applicability. After the presentation there will be individual advice for every body.

Please reply if you want to join this meeting by sending an e-mail to: FFNT@utwente.nl.  

Kind regards on behalf of the Female Faculty Network Twente (FFNT),

Wilma Dierkes, chairman
