Our expertise lies in Appearance Management which includes complete makeovers, social, dining and business etiquette for organisations and individuals. It is your one stop shop to enhance your Executive Presence and step up your career ladder!

What inspired you to launch The Image Manager?

The need for financial independence, coupled with the fact that I only wanted to do what I was really passionate about, topped up with the scenario of married to a military man!

What problem does The Image Manager solve?

We help people enhance their personal brand. You are your own seller, marketer and brand icon. People have to believe in what you stand for when they meet you, because it takes them just 7 seconds to make up their minds about you!
We speak without opening our mouths, through our appearance, behaviour, communication, and increasingly through your digital footprint. You better get it right the first time, because you seldom get a second chance. I make sure that you take that chance and run with the wind with it!

What has been your biggest challenge starting The Image Manager and how are you working to overcome it?

Balancing work and life, for sure! I am married to a military man and we move every couple of years. To find my own identity in the middle of so much movement means that I have to give myself a daily boost of courage, commitment, perseverance and tenacity to follow my dreams, without compromising on any of the roles that I have apart from being a business woman- that of a mother, wife and daughter.

Give us one word that people might use to describe you.
