Keynote Presentation: Dress for Success: Enhancing Your Professional Image
Erin Crotty, BloomStra Consulting
Professional dress is critical in any business. It takes only a five seconds to form a first impression, and more than half of that first impression is based on appearance. In fact, communication experts believe that 55% of the total message presented by a person during a first meeting consists of that person’s physical appearance.
Like it or not, people make judgments on our values, social status and professionalism based on our physical appearance. The way you package yourself therefore sends amessage about you, your skills, and your organization. It does not matter what position you hold within the workplace, presenting a positive image is hugely important because it matters to your organization’s overall image and brand, your personal brand, and most importantly, to your clients/customers.
