In today’s competitive world doing a good job is what you are paid for, but looking stylish and giving that little bit extra will make the difference and help you to stand out from the crowd in a positive way.

Ask yourself:

  • How well do I represent my business and job with my appearance?
  • How well dressed am I today and how well are you representing your business brand?
  • Do you look good every day, not some days  (you need to show you are consistent in your appearance, as it indicates you are with your work).
  • Who are you and what type of business do you represent – creative, conservative, trendy or more relaxed in style.

I have been an image consultant , running my own business Appearance Management, for 15  years and help people with their personal image. I have written  books, “Being Truly You – Discovering your Own Unique Wardrobe Personality “, one for men and one for women,  which has a questionnaire so that you can work out your wardorbe personalities, often one more in work and one more in your personal life.

Having a Passion and Enjoying Your work is Key

People who do a great job in the hospitality industry are summed up as ASK. They have a positive Attitude, great Skills and Knowledge. We have just been the beneficiaries of this, at a wonderful week’s break at  La Residencia in Majorca.

This made me think  how much better life would be and how a company’s bottom line would improve if we all had the same attitude to our work. Companies need to think about the training of their staff and how to improve what image they portray. Management need to ask – Do their employees represent the corporate brand? Our personal image i.e. the way we look, sound and behave, has a significant impact on how our company is perceived. Looking good gives people confidence, good body language helps to portray a positive message and good manners, whilst not being commented upon, will, like bad manners, never be forgotten.

If you believe that how your people engage with your clients matters then we can help, so please contact, image consultants Appearance Management

Now more than ever, in the present financial climate when there is stiff competition  it is important to deliver a good presentation whether pitching for work or a job interview. First impressions count, so when you are giving that important presentation think carefully about the situation and dress accordingly. Plan and prepare not only your presentation but also your personal image.

7 Tips:

  1.  Remember to be well groomed
  2. Ensure your clothes fit you well
  3. If presenting as a team think about co-ordination and your corporate brand (you don’t want the team’s clothes clashing).
  4. Ensure your clothes are not too hot or cold that you will feel uncomfortable
  5. Dress appropriately but also reflect your wardrobe personality as well as your corporate brand.
  6.  Feel comfortable and enjoy yourself.
  7. Think positive and be confident.

Susan Boyle – Britain’s Got Talent

By Angela, 17th Apr 2009

Suddenly Susan Boyle is all the talk, with large numbers of hits on YouTube.  Yes your appearance does say a lot about you, but it doesn’t say what type of voice you have and my goodness what a great voice she has. A natural singer.

Several people have sent Appearance Management messages suggesting we should help her with her image. We suggest, for the time being stick with who you are (perhaps some minor changes as the competition develops) and then change your style as you change and develop. Whatever happens,  Susan, dress so that you feel good as well as look good and be true to yourself – your wardrobe personality .  With the new fame your wardrobe personality will want to adapt and develop with you.

The key will be to learn to understand how to develop your own style which is suited to your body shape, life style, wardrobe personality, career goals and budget. 

This applies to us all through the various stages of our lives.
