But the majority of companies fail to consider the professional executive presence of their employees, and the effect this has on their overall corporate brand message.
This is a huge oversight. Employees are so often the first 'real' impression of your company. They are the ones out meeting, selling, pitching and interacting with potential clients and creating the lasting impression of your brand. Don't you want to make sure they are sending the right message?
Another factor that is often overlooked is that personal image has a big impact on confidence, and therefore when employees gain confidence in their wardrobe, it can have an impact on their performance.
Along with her personal styling and wardrobe consulting expertise, Lizzie is the only Executive Presence System Training Coach in the UK, having been trained and certified in 2015 by industry leader Diane Craig of Corporate Class, Toronto. Diane is recognised as an innovator in modern leadership practices, and has been advising Fortune 500 companies, universities, politicians and private clients since 1981, and gaining a reputation for providing Executive Presence training across North America.

As a Corporate Style and Image Consultant Lizzie specialises in working on Executive Presence for companies who want to support their female employees to gain confidence, look smart, and up to date.
Through our group image training sessions she raise awareness of the importance of image and appearance, the concept of personal branding, and of having a professional appearance aligned with that.
For small groups we offer interactive workshops, offering the opportunity for personal feedback and individual advice and guidelines.
Our image programmes are designed to suit your company’s particular requirements, and can be delivered alone, or easily assimilated into existing leadership training or coaching programmes such as sales training, presentation skills, impact and influence, and leadership development.
Sessions range from a 60 minute presentation, to half-day or full days, and take place either in-house or off-site.
Working on your key issues and goals, all image programmes have clearly defined objectives, and deliver measurable outcomes and results.
When your employees need assistance to maximise their image potential to enable promotion, but lack the skill and know how, a one to one Executive Image Programme is the solution.
Many of our one to one personal styling clients are female executives returning to work following maternity leave. For most women going back into the office after a break and such a huge change in their life can be stressful enough, without having to worry about what they are going to wear. However they often need to re stock their business wardrobe due to size and shape changes, while juggling childcare. Companies can now assist their senior female staff by enabling them to have help in this by hiring a professional personal stylist who is an expert in business wear shopping.
We offer your busy senior executives an assessment of their current style, image and executive presence. We give practical information and solutions to enable them to optimise their professional appearance through image assessments, wardrobe and personal shopping sessions.
If you would like to speak to us regarding our image programmes for employee groups or executive personal styling for female executives, please book a phone call so we can discuss your needs.
