What better way to strengthen your business while investing in the future of your workforce?
Joanna Polak-Goodman, founder of ImageTALKS, was a senior manager in the City of London with leading global Financial Institutions. She realised the benefits of image impact when her bank engaged image consultants for employees.
For Joanna, it took subtle changes in behaviour, voice tone and personal appearance, to ensure that her career developed. She was soon headhunted to a Directorship post in a competitor bank and decided to use an image consultant to train her team of corporate bankers. ‘Some of the guys were fairly reluctant initially, however every one of them enjoyed it and the impact was significant – sharper, cleaner lines and more dynamic.
‘I recall how one newly appointed female banker was coming up against resistance from her inherited well-established clients. The changes that she implemented after her session literally opened doors for her that had previously been firmly shut.’
Joanna's passion is to transform the lives of other professionals. She qualified as an image consultant with London’s leading Image Consultancy, which compliments her previous training at the Lucie Clayton Finishing School and the London College of Fashion.
She has worked with a number of global brands delivering talks, workshops and consultations to professional groups and individual executives, helping them achieve effective gravitas, congruence and a polished presence.
‘Once you truly understand your personal impact, and you are confident how to portray the best version of yourself, then the world is truly your oyster!’
