our clients say

“Janette’s ability to really understand what I like was quiet extraordinary…I have worked with stylist before and I have to say this was the most fun, most educational and most productive session. Janette is indeed my best shopping find ever”
Justine – Senior Executive

“This has not just been a makeover, as “makeover” in my mind lasts a night or so, but a transition in physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing. I have NEVER received so many genuine compliments ever before.” Victoria

“Janette, you came into my life when I desperately needed a change. The style and colour consultations we had were invaluable. Thank you for curing my colour blindness as I no longer see only in black, brown and gray.” Susanna

“You showed me things that I would have never looked at in the shop. And the silk blouse from jigsaw with the paisley pattern is my favourite — I would have never bought it! ” Anjta

“I wanted to say a big thank you to you for being such a great shopper and for making the whole task of buying clothes much more fun. I always learn more about what works, what doesn’t and why!” Georgia

Congratulations To The Women Of Our New Ministry

"Today I'm announcing a 21st century Government and a ministry for the future". - Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Our new Prime Minister made a substantial overhaul including giving Marise Payne the defence portfolio. She is the first woman to hold the portfolio since Federation. In addition, we finally have a female who is the Minister for Women, the Hon Michaelia Cash.

It's been a long time coming, but the moment has arrived! Finally, there is some representation of female leaders in our new cabinet. Mr Turnbull has taken the number of women in cabinet from two (eleven per cent) to five (24 per cent). That's certainly a step in the right direction.

Our female leaders will have an interesting journey ahead and I wish them every success. This is the time where their "Total Image" will be put to the test and impressions and opinions will be formed by the Australian public. They are all knowledgeable and have proven track records and no doubt look the part.

This is a great start for women and for Australia!

How Does Your Executive Presence Reveal Itself To Others?

Have you ever meet someone who attracts instant attention the minute they walk into a room? If we look to public figures I would say that of the late Nelson Mandela, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Sir Richard Branson, Tony Robbins and Barack O'Bama. I think we can agree that they all have a strong value system and they all believe in honesty, integrity, respect and compassion.

We just know when we see, hear and sense great Executive Presence but have you ever wondered how your Executive Presence reveals itself to others? Let's take a look.

1. You being the "natural" you: others sense when you are trying to be someone your not. So be true to yourself and your values
2. Giving someone your undivided attention: others know and sense when you're not present. So be in the moment with staff and colleagues
3. Speaking honestly and respectfully - and not ducking issues: Having the grit to deal with difficult or sensitive issues will set you apart
4. Strong sense of purpose, which radiates on others: When you work in a job and on projects that align with your strengths and values, others will get to see the great results you produce.
5. You letting your unique personality flow

So how might you experience your own presence?

It's when you feel in the flow (or in the moment) with what's happening, it feels easy, you feel confident, you are enjoying what you're doing. Sports stars call it being "in the zone".

If the organisation you work for and the position you hold allow you to be natural, to speak honestly, have a strong sense of purpose and be yourself then your Executive Presence will naturally evolve.

As a resident Image Consultant for Hudson Recruitment, I see many outplacement clients who are in roles where their values and strengths are not aligned with their position. It takes courage to look within and evaluate where you are in your professional career. I did just that in 2005 when I decided to change careers and become an Image Consultant. Many people told me I was crazy to leave such a well regarded and well-paid position to venture into the unknown. It was the best life decision I have ever made.

My business Image Consultants started with a bang in 2007 and is a result of finding alignment between my own personal values and life purpose. I started because I knew that I could make others look and feel great about themselves and that I’d have the opportunity to serve others in a way that gives me immense satisfaction. I'm "in the zone" every day and that's why I can't call what I do a "job".

You owe it to yourself to find that position or organisations that will allow you to "feel in the flow" every day.

So Stand Up and Stand Out.

The Rule of Thirds

Ladies, how many times have you looked at yourself in the mirror and thought, “Something doesn’t look right here ”? It could be that the proportions of your outfit are all wrong.

Have you heard of The Golden Ratio or the Golden Mean? This is a question I posed to 30 women last week during my Stockland Women’s Networking Event in Brisbane.

The ancient Greeks claimed that 1/3 to 2/3 ratio is the most aesthetically pleasing division of spaces. When you dress in uneven proportions i.e. in thirds or 1:2 ratio, this provides a more aesthetically pleasing appearance by elongating your body. If you are to dress in a 1:1 ratio (halves) it can look boxy and unflattering. Take a look at this comparison

Which do you prefer?

So what does 1:2 dressing look like. Have a look at these examples. Don’t you think they look flattering?

The ancient concept also has applications in nature, mathematics, architecture and art e.g. Mona Lisa was painted using the golden ratio; the Eiffel tower was built following the golden ratio.

So when you get dressed for work tomorrow morning assess the proportions of your outfit. Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”
