Emily Post Image and Professional Development Programs




Confident, dynamic, approachable.

Credible, efficient, trustworthy.

Considerate, respectful, honest.






"I just wanted to thank you again for your help with my professional development.  I was advised earlier this week that on January first I will be promoted with a pretty significant pay increase. I don’t think I could have gotten to this point without your help so again … thank you."

The two-second rule: People make an immediate and lasting assessment of you in the time it takes to snap your fingers. What three attributes do managers, peers, colleagues, clients, family and friends see in you? And is there a disconnect between how you see yourself and how others see you?

Your image is not determined just by what you wear or your current hairstyle. No matter your job, location or situation in life, your consistent image is your personal brand. Once determined and understood, it is a standard that you should never fall below. Emily Post Image and Professional Development Programs help you develop your own story and provide you with the self-awareness and confidence to succeed in the job you have today and the career you want in the future.



Our program offerings include:

  • New Hire/New Manager Image Trainings

  • Executive Image: Personal Branding Program
