Work with my personal stylist
If you’ve been on my How to be a Comms Consultant Exploration or Momentum Masterclasses, you’ll know I share insights into personal branding. Part of those discussions include revealing my little black book of contacts and one of my favourite people to work with.
Her name is Daisy Schubert and she’s a personal stylist who specialises in female entrepreneurs who speak on stage – so I’m her ideal client! She’s got a special offer for my blog readers, that I’m delighted to share with you – and you don’t need to be a speaker or entrepreneur to benefit from it.
Last year I did Daisy’s Style Transformation Package to help me focus on the way I dress, as part of my own personal branding work. She has transformed the way I think about clothes and shop.
As a business owner and mum-of-three who is regularly dashing around and relying on online shopping as I never get to the shops in person, I’d got stuck in a rut. Daisy has helped me be a smarter shopper and know what to buy and how to save time, money and effort as a result. Knowing the colours and shapes to go for has saved me so much time and reduced the amount I send back. (Luckily teal is part of my colour palette :)).
The Style Transformation Package is what I’ve been through and recommend. It’s a three-month programme where you have access to Daisy on demand (ad-hoc support via text message except on Sundays), six online Skype sessions looking at mindset, accountability and reassurance, plus three full days of Style Consultation. This includes colour analysis, body shape analysis, style personality, outfit planning, wardrobe organisation and personal shopping.
(I took the pic below on a shopping trip we did together at the end of 2018 when were trying to find trousers that didn’t swamp all 5ft of me!).
Enter CIPR Inside Story Awards – for free
This isn’t an offer limited to All Things IC’s readers, but it’s such a lovely one, I thought I’d share it with you.
There are some amazing internal communicators in our industry doing brilliant work with limited recognition. The Inside Story Online Awards are CIPR Inside’s way of saying ‘thank you’ to those people working in internal communication and employee engagement roles for that outstanding work.
Chair Advita Patel told me: “We know that internal communicators and teams are busy people so it’s quick and easy to enter our awards and not only will you have the chance to win a small prize, we will also showcase the winning entries on our social media channels and website. Best of all, it’s free to enter!”
