First Impressions

Creating positive first impressions is all about our personal Image, which is made up of three things; how we look, how we sound and our body language. We form opinions about others in a matter of seconds and then spend the rest of our time justifying our decisions to ourselves.

Our Image communicates so much about us. It has a powerful effect on how other people approach and respond to us, personally and professionally. A positive, appropriate Image instantly puts our audience at ease. Adversely, a negative, inappropriate Image creates hard to shift obstacles and barriers to success.

Top Tips:

  1. Ensure that your clothing is appropriate for the occasion
  2. What you wear and your grooming communicate how you feel about yourself… ask yourself what it is that you are conveying to others?
  3. Keep accessories, jewelery, make-up, perfume and aftershave subtle and appropriate
  4. Practice the art of introducing yourself and of making small talk
  5. Smile, make eye contact, shake hands, relax, don’t fidget
  6. Be conscious of the appropriate etiquette in the circumstances that you find yourself
  7. Remember other peoples names and use them
  8. Listen, pay attention to what the other person is saying in order to show interest and find common ground… don’t chatter
