Presentations for Business
Learning how to positively project yourself and express your unique personal brand is an universally useful skill in business. A presentation or interactive session on Personal Branding and Business Image not only has real business benefit but is also a less dry and intense subject than some more typical business meeting agenda items! So whether you are looking for an interactive and impactful presentation for a team away day, business meeting or motivation/recognition event, I can help. I can speak on any business image topic:
I mpressions – the importance of first, and lasting, impressions
M indset and Mannerisms – how your mental state and body language communicate your brand
A ppearance – how to ‘dress your personal brand’, convey a positive, confident and compelling business image and develop capsule work wardrobes
G ravitas and Charisma – how to communicate presence, power and warmth
E tiquette – how to act and behave appropriately in business
If more time is available, I can also offer ‘hands on’ experiences for teams wishing to explore business image in a more practical way. For example, I can confirm team members’ ‘colouring types’ and show each of them some of the best neutral and accent colours for their work wardrobes, or offer tips and advice on aspects of style, or demonstrate how to develop a capsule work wardrobe.
The personal branding presentation at BP was followed up by half-hour one-to-one sessions with ten of the ‘high performers’ to give them personalised colour and style advice:-
“I found the Personal Branding session really good”
Delegate from The PA Conference, May 2018, Hemsley Fraser
“Thanks so much for your personal branding session yesterday. Feedback is excellent”
Paul Alexander, Director Indirect Procurement, BP

Events for Retailers
I am regularly asked to present or take part in events for clothing shops, whether they are part of national chains or local independent boutiques. I have worked with LKBennett, Jigsaw, Reiss, Neville Johnson, Mistral, Boots and many other High Street names. Whether it is a fashion show, VIP customer event, seasonal launches, charity events or an event where I offer ‘mini colour, style or make-up tasters’ for your customers.
Please contact me to discuss organising an event at your store.
I am particularly keen to engender body confidence in young people and to encourage them to think of their ‘visual CV’, so I also work with schools to deliver workshops specifically aimed at 15-18 year olds ahead of their next step into the world of work, college or university. Schools I have worked with include: St Catherine’s School (Bramley), Wycombe Abbey, St Theresa’s (Dorking), and Guildford High School.
“The girls found the session extremely engaging and informative. It has opened their eyes to have the confidence to consider which styles and colours suit them the most. You were incredibly positive with the girls in encouraging them to celebrate their own body shapes. I certainly noticed a fabulous array of stylish suits on the girls’ first day in the Sixth Form.”
Sophia Ridley, Year 11 Enrichmnet Co-ordinator, St Catherine’s School, Bramley
“A huge thank you for coming to Wycombe yesterday. The girls really enjoyed your session and it has really raised awareness of what they ‘throw on’ in the mornings and what they plan to wear at interview. It was so worthwhile for the girls”.
Rachel, Senior Academic Tutor, Wycombe Abbey School
