I wish I had known about this course three years ago! Thank you Lynne, Sarah and Emily for providing me the many invaluable tools I need to grow my image business. Your approachable and interactive styles taught me practical techniques that I can bring immediately to clients to enhance their personal and professional profiles.

I find I have a wider understanding of Image Consulting now and its true power!”

This was two grounded weeks of training with information of a six months course, with no time wasting.”

Morenike Tunde-Idowu

“I evolved as a person and business owner and know that I have the skills to deliver the multi-dimensional aspects of image consulting. As a 20- year salon owner and pageantry veteran I have dealt with hundreds of women and I have never felt so safe, empowered and supported as I did with the instructors and fellow students of LII.”

The goal setting exercise and all the attainable aspects gave me motivation and commitment.

“I will contribute the value of consistency in everything.

We truly are our own brand.”

It was valuable to learn that I can live a created life.”

Burcu Diker, Turkey and UK

“For me this course embodied the phrase: “Let thy light shine.” I learned a lot about myself and how I could, as an image consultant use my attributes to build my brand for a flourishing business. I found out how to distinguish myself from the other consultants in my country and beyond. I now know how to coach and help others.”

Stella Couloumy, France

“Thank you so much for the gift your gave us. You helped clarify how to create our own image and brand and now the whole picture and all the steps of my new career are quite clear to me.

“It was a wonderful course with great instructors and it feels great to know that we were in the best hands of image consulting training and could benefit from their personal touch as well. The program was very enriching and energizing. I am looking forward to delivering sessions for my clients! Having such a wonderful support at the very beginning of an adventurous road is such a privilege. The practice, practicality and repetition of the course made it possible to understand and retain the material much better. Not only that, I can start the day I get back home! I have learnt a lot, been inspired, met great people and had a lot of fun! I am very much impressed by your personality, your positive and enjoyable approach and your friendship. You made a difference in the lives of each of us.

By the way, my bio looks absolutely fantastic!! You’ve done it in a perspective I have not thought of, taking great points under the spotlight. To me, my bio l now promotes my experience in the best way possible. Thank you so much for all your help; truly, sincerely appreciated! I will use this version of my bio very proudly. Thank you so much.”

Pinar Akkaya

“Before the course I had a really fine life. But I was not satisfied with just “fine” and wanted more. Along the way I had lost some of my passion and now I have it back. I found that practicing the presentations, actually doing the work was really valuable and learned that a coaching approach to train is much more effective and engaging. It always makes the presentations about the individuals not about the presenter.”

Terra Goeres, Boulder, CO

“I gained so many insights to carry forward to business and more self-awareness so that I can better help my clients. This was one of the top experiences of my life.”

Dawn Stanyon, Emily Post Institute

“I learned a clear understanding of marketing, preparing, packaging and delivering effective workshops in a coaching style and how important it is to communicate at a deep human level with my clients. But, the most valuable aspect was learning about myself and realizing that it’s OK to be in a transformational phase in my life. This course is powerful. It’s not only an image course but also a personal development course! I got so much self confidence that I have already made some amazing life-altering changes so that I can go full speed ahead with my new life and my image company.”

Diane Petrini

“This course has changed my life. I have honestly grown over the last two weeks. I can feel it and manifest it in the way I talk, think and behave. Other people say I sound and act different, the course was that impactful. It’s as if I came here as a girl and I’m leaving as a woman.”

Enitan Soboyejo

“The most significant insight I gained from London Image Institute is to learn how much deeper the field of image consulting reaches. It permeates beyond the outer layers, empowering clients from within. I am so excited about the opportunity to impact lives. Where do I begin on benefits? This is extensive training involving seminars and business development workshops. Everything was beneficial.”

Vanessa Weatherspoon

“I am grateful to have the opportunity to change people’s lives. As you told our class, the external image is a reflection of what is internal. I approach each presentation as an opportunity to assist in that internal change. I have literally had women approach me after a presentation with tears in their eyes. They have expressed how the seminar helped them view themselves differently. They are worthy of a polished look! They are worthy of success! They are worthy! What an honor to play a role in that epiphany.

Thank you Lynne, for pouring yourself into my life. Kudos to Sarah as well; she has been coaching me the last few months. Her input has been invaluable.

I look forward to keeping in touch and I will be emailing you with questions as I grow. I also look forward to returning to the course in January to assist you in any way you desire. I want the students to know how valuable the course is!”

Bryon Dickens

“The course was the turning point in my career that I was hoping it would be. Since then I have professionally excelled. I have had dozens of speaking engagements for both corporate and associations. Most are paid. Some are pro bono. I have been a conference keynote speaker and have 3 more keynotes coming up soon. All in all, I am loving it! I love to teach. And I enjoy the personal makeovers as well. The two streams of work are very satisfying for me.

My list of clients is impressive. It includes a local celebrity (media) and Olympic Gold Medalist, Lori-Ann Muenzer. Track cycling, Athens 2004. I have great energy and wonderful support from my family. This is already a great year and I am optimistic of my future successes. Thank you so much!”

Shirley Borelli

“I think that this course is absolutely amazing because it makes you think way beyond merely color and style. I loved the whole process of personal branding as it helped me discover in-depth who I am what I stand for and where I am in life..

I can’t believe how I changed and how different is my attitude to people is now. This course has given me something that I couldn’t probably accomplish over my whole life if I was doing that on my own. And first of all I have much greater tolerance towards people around me. It seems like I was so self-centered all these years and over this period of time I’ve learned to accept people the way they are with their flaws, because we all have some.

It is amazing how you give us such a confidence boost and I actually feel very inspired and empowered to go out there in the world and bring some changes with me. It was truly a life- changing experience! Thank you all for all your time, effort, patience, and mainly your belief in us.”

Natalie Svikle

“I just wanted to share that I am so thrilled and have been sharing with clients and students how wonderful it has been in just a year since I took your course. Within barely a year since the course, I passed FLC, and amazingly, I have been conducting workshops for different clients every month. And even some have contracted for series of workshops! I am very thrilled and just want to share this with you as my mentors. So proud to have been trained by both of you!

I can’t thank you enough for being such wonderful and excellent trainers. The platform for my classes has been what I learned in the Advanced course of IAT. As for the business, continuous promotion, marketing and business development have been going on slowly but consistently. I always always site you and Christina during my classes when I do introductions. In fact I did an interview for Entrepreneur Magazine just the other day and cited you as my mentors!”

Carmina (Miselle) Penalosa-Bergonia

“My dearest mentor, my proposal has been accepted as one of the education sessions that will be offered at the AICI conference. I’m glad! I want to say: Thank you so much! It’s you who changed my life! You gave me the way I could bloom at my career.”

Tracy HU, Beijing

I can’t express how grateful I am for this experience and for all your golden nuggets of wisdom. Thank you for your generosity, speaking the truth, yet in love. I feel so empowered and excited.”

Pamela Chan, Singapore

Shilpi Atri, Singapore

“This fabulous course far exceeded my expectations. The level of training was something I didn’t expect. I am so happy I attended. I feel really blessed with superb teaching and training techniques which hit the mark and which I can now pass on to my clients.”

Ian Nubla

“This is a totally comprehensive, enriching course. After all the training I have taken, my gaps are now filled. I now have a structure and can start tomorrow. I understood better who I am and the business development will help me expand and run my consultancy effectively as a business. I can’t thank you enough. You are fabulous teachers who share everything.”

Vandita

“The course was very intense but never fell short of the things I wanted to learn. Everything was there. I loved the balance of trainers: Christina was inspiring and passionate; Lynne and Sonya taught us in a no nonsense way how to implement and succeed in business. You guys are the cream of the crop!”
