Image consulting

Image consulting is the next huge business opportunity in India. Our population has the highest number of youngsters, as compared to other nations. The statistics indicate the average age of Indians to be 29 by 2020. This also means that the competition in personal, professional and social life will intensify by the day. As per recent media reports, individuals and companies are spending thousands on image management.

Image management

Creating a positive first impression by successfully managing one's image is the key to success. Image management is not only about makeovers, attending personality and grooming workshops, buying branded clothes etc. It is about learning the science and art of optimally using given personal resources of clothes, grooming, body language, etiquette and vocal communication to achieve the objective in every given situation. It is an ongoing process of managing and upgrading your resources.
