them in the car instead of packing them
in a suitcase. Think about what you’ll
wear and how best to present yourself.
A navy blazer would be a great investment piece. Wear it with nice, clean
jeans and you’re good to go. Most hotels
have irons, and if you don’t know how
to use one—well, practice.
While we’re on the topic of personal
presentation, for heaven sakes practice
your handshake and direct eye-contact.
Don’t make your handshake into a vice
grip, but leave the wimpy woman limp
stuff at home too. Just a good, firm grip and a direct look into
the eyes will go a long way.
When I went to my first International Women in Aviation
Conference I was in a totally different spot in life and I needed
to introduce myself into the aviation world in a different venue. I was just beginning a business and I needed to network.
I’m in a different place nearly 25 years later and the Women in
Aviation Conference is pure enjoyment for me. I approach it
differently and use it as downtime from my educational profession. That being said, the Exhibit Hall is my first hit.
After walking-and-talking and familiarizing myself with
the lay of the land I begin the serious stuff—looking for
books. Whether its aviation or education, as Thomas Jeffer-
son said, “I cannot live without books.”
The Women in Aviation store always has some great new
finds. Check out the WASP booth, the
International Women’s Air and Space
Museum booth, Whirly-Girls booth and
see what’s been newly published. The
military members of the organization
have some great books out there. And,
my favorite spot: The Authors’ Table.
Visit it, meet the author in person and
get the book signed. It’s a win-win all
the way around.
Practice your hand-
shake and direct eye-
contact. A good, firm
grip and a direct look
