Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people.
After your training, you will probably start your own image consulting agency, you will then represent your company as well as your personal brand and the way you present yourself and communicate reflects on the way your company will be perceived by potential clients. Therefore, it is important that you project a professional, appropriate and consistent image at all time. The French/Australian Image Academy strongly believes that being an excellent Image Consultant is not only about excellent technical skills but it is also about developing strong communication skills. We want our students to communicate their advice in a professional manner, and for them to be able to share their communication skills with their clients. Personal presentation and image consulting are not only about clothes, colours and accessories; it is also about verbal and non-verbal communication skills.

It involves much more than words, as communication is also about your body language, the tone of voice and your speaking manners.
