What’s your profession: accountant; academic; architect; banker; engineer; lawyer; physician; pharmacist or teacher? Perhaps you are a sports professional or an artistic professional: choreographer, author, actor or musicians. Whatever profession you have chosen, chances are you will be in the public eye. If you are a professional then you need to manage the perception you create. Projecting an appropriate professional image will be a critical component of your career success.
You may be exceptionally talented and very good at what you do but if you don’t project the correct professional image you could be seriously limiting your future success and professional recognition. Politicians, celebrities and sportspeople are not born with an image and style gene, they have been enlisting the help of image consultants for years. They recognise that their public image and profile is a key component of their career success and they come to professionals like me to advise on dress, body language, communication and etiquette.
You need to ensure that your professional image matches your career aspirations and dreams, you literally need to look the part. Looking professional and dressing appropriately doesn’t have to be expensive, I can show you how to achieve a polished look appropriate to your profession and within your budget. When you book a Professional Image Management consultation you will get one to one bespoke advice, the consultation is completely tailored to your needs.
Professional Image management is no longer the domain of the rich and famous
If you work for yourself the importance of your professional image should not be underestimated. As a small business owner, you represent your business. When people look at you, they make an opinion (and often a judgement) about you, and, your business. If you don’t present well, then neither will your business.
They do say that your image is the first thing remembered and the last thing forgotten. The problem is you may not be aware of the image that you are creating or how to change or improve it. With so much at stake you can’t afford to take any chances and a half day investment in a professional image management consultation will ensure that your create, manage and maintain a thoroughly professional image and appropriate look at all times.
