Welcome to Angela Marshall’s “Being Truly You” blogBy Angela Marshall, 29th Jul 2008
I founded Appearance Management in 1995 and I’m one of the UK’s leading image consultants. I made a unique contribution to our understanding of image by identifying ten distinct Wardrobe Personalities ranging from casual to dramatic to creative.
I’ve been told that my enduring success in a sector where people rapidly ‘come and go’ is due to my ability to skilfully and sensitively help people to Truly Be themselves. It’s true, I do get a buzz out of helping people look good and to feel really great about themselves. “You can tell when it’s right – their confidence increases and straight away their body language changes – they become a different person”.
My previous career in banking places me in an invaluable position to advise other corporate businesses. My client list includes senior executives, blue chip companies, politicians, career professionals and people returning to work after a break. Unusually for an image consultant I advise almost as many men as women.
I also work with media training companies and have appeared on Sky News, Radio 5 Live and a number of local stations as well as providing comments on image for the press. I’m a member of the Professional Speakers Association and am available to present at conferences, sales events, corporate meetings and seminars.
