Sometimes the little touches make the biggest impact. Accessories are small luxuries that create a favorable impression. Many years ago when I was the special events manager for the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel in Orlando, Florida, I would attend weekly preconference meetings with meeting planners who were bringing their groups to the hotel. As I sat in the meetings, I couldn’t help but notice the catering manager’s designer fountain pen with a black lacquer finish. Although it seems small, it had a big effect on the way I perceived his overall image. Everything about him was nicely put together, his suit, tie, and hair, but that fountain pen completed his impeccable appearance. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on a pen, but it should look attractive and write well.
I’m a big fan of the Sheaffer Agio frosted pink nickel trim fountain pen. I love the slim design and the way it writes. Do you have a favorite pen?
