Things For Out Of Town Trades
Company representatives are usually the boss' most trusted people because they are the ones who will obviously represent the company out there. They should be confident, responsible and knowledgeable enough to be able to give a good impression. So when your boss finally decides to send you to an out-of-town business trip, like seminars and conferences, then you should be very happy.
Trustworthy employees deserve a treat! And in this case, it is a business trip. So when you are already assigned to go out there, put your best foot forward and make the most out of the trip. While you are at it, have a taste of the culture and people wherever you are assigned to go to. For that to happen, never forget to bring the following things.
Though toothbrushes, shampoos, towels and soaps are readily available in hotel rooms, bringing your own could also have some advantages, too. Sometimes ladies just can't sleep if they are not using their favorite shower gel or sweet-smelling shampoos. Men should also bring their own shaving creams. Three-o'clock shadows just don't work on everyone. Needless to say, a mouthwash, perfumes and deodorants are must-haves. However important cleanliness is, don't over-do it. You could reek and that would not impress probable clients at all.
Ladies, though it is not a must, are preferred to bring with them undergarments in neutral colors namely black, white and skin tone. Men are expected to do the same. Even if undergarments are not visible, they should be in good condition and make you feel ultra-comfy. This could help you ease the tension during encounters with important people.
Suits and Ties
A good suit is usually the one thing that you will need paired with a good tie that does not come in cartoon character prints. But how about post-meeting night outs? Make like a good scout and bring about two extra polo shirts and a pair of denim jeans. For the ladies, the reliable little black dress would come in handy.
As with shoes, just bring with you a shoe shiner. Shoes should be shiny, well-polished and preferably black. Men should not bring socks that do not closely match the colors of your trousers. For night outs, bring a pair of sneakers that you are most comfortable in
Belts are usually used when your pants seem a bit loose. However, you can always use it to complete an outfit or a suit. Just make sure they complement the color of your shoes.
