Course Description

Upon completing this course you will be well versed in the art of managing your first impression as it relates to the message your personal image is sending. This is essential in establishing a long-lasting and positive first impression - because before you even have the opportunity to say a word or offer a handshake, your audience has already begun to judge your level of professionalism, credibility, and trustworthiness.

This course covers four main topic areas:

1. Fit and Proportion. You may be sabotaging your style efforts by wearing clothes that visually add weight to your frame and downplay your best features. Learn how to dress to impress according to your body type.

2. Fabric, Wardrobe and Care of Clothing. With at least 37 different kinds of fabric out there, there are endless number of fabric blends and just as many types of care required. Learn how to extend the life of your clothing through proper care.

3. Your Stye. Your Image. Style can be a very personal thing and being able to convey your personality and confidence through your outward appearance can be a powerful tool. Learn how to marry your style with your personal brand message.

4. Personal Grooming and Hygiene. We all have the power to make a positive impression. A big part of presenting ourselves properly is taking time to simply care for ourselves. Learn techniques to put your best face forward.
