I had another long day in New York for a conference and am on the train home. Had a funny moment where I was trying to meet someone that I had only spoken to on the phone and had no idea what he looked like since he has no LinkedIn picture. It was sort of like a blind date where he provided me details of what he was wearing. This was incredibly useful in identifying a middle aged white dude in a grey suit in a sea of middle aged white dudes in grey suits.
Luckily, I am still one of about five women in the room and love to wear bold colors, as I did today with wearing bright red, so we connected and all was well.
