Motivational Speaker Malfunctions in Humid Climate

Posted by Jody Urquhart on Mon, Sep 19, 2011 @ 11:57 AM

motivational speakerMy new industrial strength MAC lipgloss melted off my lips while I was speaking for a group of government employees in Hilton Head Florida. The air conditioner was broken and I could feel the sweat forming on my brow.

I don't live in a humid climate but the event reminded me how humidity reeks havoc on your hair and make up. By the end of my motivational talk I had lipstick smeared all over my teeth and mascara splattered on my cheekbones. My hair lay limp and lifeless against my head. Just in time for photo opportunities.

I am not exaggerating to say I looked like a complete mess. What a distraction it must have been for the audience to stare at a Version of the rocky horror show giving a motivational talk. Like most things I shrug it off but am reminded of the unique challenges of being a female motivational speaker.

To prepare for humidity...

  • Wear less makeup and make sure it's waterproof
  • Wear your hair back or in a simple style
  • Bring powder to reduce shine
  • In a humid hot room ditch the long sleeve pant suit
  • Avoid wearing nylons if possible, they may start on fire when you walk

Speaking for the government employees I found the room was unbearably hot but the audience was just as warm. They are used to this heat, they accommodated the heat by fanning themselves with my handouts.

So I would Add to the Keys to a good Motivational Talk for Women is to prepare for humidity!
