Lynda Jean Image Consulting is dedicated to empowering clients to enhance their image and self-esteem in order to facilitate their social and career goals. Image Consulting is both an art and a science. It is more than dressing the individual to compliment their skin tone and body type. It is about dressing someone in a way that highlights their personality to be in harmony with their aspired goals. It is about integrating their inner self with an outer image that feels comfortable and natural.
Lynda works individually with clients to create powerful first impressions. Services include: Colour and Body/Style Analysis, Wardrobe Audit, Personal Shopping, and Social and Professional Etiquette. Corporately, Lynda provides presentations that address appropriate attire and common courtesies in the workplace. She also works with employees individually to assist them in maximizing their professional image.
Academically, Lynda taught Image Consulting courses at George Brown College in Toronto, Canada for several years. She is the co-author of the book, “Business Success With Ease,” where she shares her knowledge about, ’The Power of Professional Etiquette.’ Lynda is VP of Education for the Canadian Chapter of Image Consultants. She is responsible for obtaining speakers to provide ongoing education for its’ members.
Lynda studied Image Consulting at the International Image Institute in Toronto, Canada. As an enhancement to her work, she also completed studies at the International Academy of Fashion and Technology in Toronto, Canada. Prior to Image Consulting, Lynda worked as a therapist and is a graduate of the University of Toronto, with a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work.
All consultations are treated with respect and confidentiality.
I had a huge amount of black clothes in my wardrobe and never realized how washed out they made me look until I stopped wearing them. I also thought I could wear more or less any colour, and I didn’t give much thought to emphasizing what looked BEST. Lynda really taught me to be more discriminating, choosing colours that made me come alive.
Madison had a wonderful time with you in your Manners Matter course. It was nice to see her so enthusiastic to teach me some new things. I noticed her posture was better that first day :) She was proud to teach her younger brother as well. We will definitely like to take that class again.
Lynda's professional etiquette seminar is a must for any business wishing to ensure that its representatives know how to behave appropriately in the corporate world. My front line employees usually make the first impression of my firm on potential clients and professional colleagues; therefore I consider it essential that they are polished and confident in every situation. Lynda presents this difficult topic in an easy and approachable way, making people feel comfortable to ask questions without awkwardness. This seminar brings real practical results. Now I feel confident that my employees have the skills they need to represent my firm in the most professional way possible. In addition, my staff now feel much more comfortable in both business and social situations.
Even after having spent only a few hours with you, I still keep your advice in mind when dressing for work or shopping for new clothes. It helps a lot in simplifying the process for me and making it more enjoyable (or at least much less painful) than it otherwise would be. As a teacher, it's especially important for me to maintain an image of professionalism and respect and I've found that the simple tips you've given me allow me to achieve this easily and inexpensively.
When Lynda went through my wardrobe with me, her eye for what worked and what didn't work helped me tremendously. What remained became the 'bones' of my wardrobe and I felt as if a huge depressing burden had been lifted from my shoulders. It's like losing weight. It is so much easier now to make smarter fashion decisions. Now I get compliments on what I'm wearing.
Our organization, like many others, faced a challenge with our younger staff: how to define for them what proper business attire means in today's workplace. We turned to Lynda Jean and are delighted we did so. Lynda, through a "Lunch 'N Learn" session, brought down to earth, practical advice to our staff in a way that was informative without being condescending or crossing any human resources boundaries. I am pleased to be able to say that we had very positive feedback from our staff on Lynda's presentation and, equally importantly, we have noticed a definite improvement in our staff's attire.
