Join us this June for a highly interactive session with Business Coach Gill Thewlis where you'll learn how to make the best use of your sartorial presence for the influence and impact you want to have at work.

Whether you're entering the world of work, coming back after a break, have a developing career or have a leadership role in your organisation, this session can help you define your clothing communications strategy. 

In this session we will explore;

The importance of knowing what you want to achieve professionally, we are all different, who do you need to influence and what impact do you want to have?

Clothing as the interface between you and others – the accidental messages we send

The internal psychology of clothing – how what we wear, and how we feel about it, influences us and our performance

Harnessing the power of colour, symbolism and meaning and what to wear when

The language of clothing – key elements to;

  • Power and influence

  • Building consensus and engagement

  • Building rapport and relationships

  • Being authoritative

  • Serving others

  • Being consciously invisible

Consciously building your own clothing communications plan
