There is one simple way to convey credibility and relevance without saying a word: your personal image.

Research shows it takes mere seconds to form an impression. There are no second chances to convey credibility and relevance to pitch clients, persuade decision-makers, or negotiate resolutions. 

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn how color & accessories are your free-pass to update your wardrobe.
  • Receive wardrobe tips for virtual meetings and interviews.
  • Consider implementing sustainable consumption choices into your closet.
  • Learn how to create a wardrobe without breaking your budget.
  • Learn simple & powerful steps for looking workplace ready as you go back into your office environment.

This workshop is facilitated through the introduction of “The 4 Pilars of Style” core concepts, self-reflection of your personal image, exploration of practical style options for what to wear in workplace scenarios, and the know-how to adopt sustainable shopping and wardrobe practice. Dare to Wow style coaching is designed to build the infrastructure and roadmap of your wardrobe while remaining agile enough to meet your specific needs wherever you may be in your career path journey.

For over 7 years, the core of Susana’s work has been styling and coaching impact-driven professionals to leverage their authentic style to consistently show up as their best selves.

Today, Susana works with clients across the professional ladder but with a particular focus on impact-driven leaders.
