Fall nudes

One of the colors I really like for this fall is nude. I found this simple nude dress for under $80, a perfect addition to my closet. You can easily dress it up for an event or down for weekend brunch.

Abel and I have been attending lots of events lately, and since he’s the king of biz dev, he helped put together some tips on how to work the room. Much thanks, Abel! <3

How to work the room

From networking at happy hours to getting coffee on your first date, subtle social cues are everywhere. Social hacks with body language and gestures can really make it much easier out there when it comes to maneuvering through the crowd.

Without further ado, here are 5 tips I’ve learned from my biz dev career.

Repeat it 3 times. Ever get annoyed how hard it is to remember new people’s names? Try contextually using their name in the beginning of the conversation.

“Hi Bob! Nice to meet you. So where you from, Bob?”
And as the conversation flows on. “Oh Bob, is that how you met Jeff?”

Square or open? When speaking with someone, are you squared up with them or side by side? Squared off means you want to keep it more 1:1, while speaking side by side is less aggressive, and you’re welcoming others to join the conversation.

Eye Contact Principles. Always look straight into their eyes when you speak to the person. You can look away when they talk to exhibit power or maintain eye contact to connect more.

Power clothes. If it’s a blazer or a tie, get into something you feel like a million bucks.

Superman. It works. But just do it before you enter the scene.

Thank you for reading as always, have an amazing weekend!

Onwards,

Abel & Melis

  1. Repeating the person’s name is such a brilliant tip, it helps the name stick in your mind! The spiralling staircase shot in this post is mesmerising by the way and I love your pretty yet powerful outfit!

  2. I am really bad at remembering names, it took me months to remember the names of my colleagues. I will try that tip when I meet someone new the next time. I don’t really wear nude clothes in a/w, dress you’re wearing is so pretty and looks great with black leather jacket. Beautiful photos as always! x
