Five Top Tips for Women Award Finalists

Updated: Feb 25, 2020

Women finalists often ask me “What do I need to know before going to an awards night?”

With the first state Telstra Business Women's Award dinner kicking off tonight in South Australia, here's my five top tips to make your night enjoyable and successful.

1. Embrace the fashionable soft-flowing pantsuits sported by celebrities at big shin-digs like the Emmys and the Oscars. Not only do they look fabulous, but they are highly practical at an awards function too – there’s nothing worse than watching women struggling with their dresses as they climb up and down the stairs to the stage.

2. And while we’re talking about how you look on stage, remember that short skirts and dresses can reveal more than you intend when you walk up the stage steps. You don’t want those front VIP tables getting an eye full. Choose an outfit that will look flattering from behind.
