It was quite an experience, and fascinating to me to see the increase in image professionals internationally. Asia, and now very much Central and South America are home to companies doing business globally, or at least internationally, who want to ensure the appearance of their people supports the company culture as well supports emotional connections with their international prospects.
They also want to ensure that their company representatives are not creating unintentional cultural disconnects that might affect business. Image is HUGE in these countries now – from protocol to dress. While there we did some touring – Mexico City is a little overwhelming – it is massive, overcrowded, smoggy but the history and archeology is amazing. Today’s city is literally built on top of a multi millennium older city which can be easily excavated beneath. Wow…!
What is “image” and why do I care…??
Image is making sure you look the part – whatever the part is for YOU You want to dress for the job you want (not have) You want to have more Authority and Executive Presence You want to look more Approachable and like a Team Player You want to look older (than you are) and have more Credibility You want to look younger (than you are) and more Vibrant You want to look taller, thinner, sexier – whatever is right for YOU!
