“We are never too late to do anything.” As C.S. Lewis said “you are never too late to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” After working with several luxury and hospitality groups such as Marriott International and Langham Hotels International, she decided to pursue a different career path, obtaining the Certified Trainer Certificate of London Image Institute. Since then she was appointed the Vice President - Education of Association of Image Consultants International – Hong Kong Chapter. With over 15 years of working experience in human resources, learning & development and quality management, she has devoted her time to help working people change their corporate image to improve their professional and personal lives successfully.
“Clothes and manners do not make the man, but when he is made, they greatly improve his appearance.”
If you take image as triviality, you shall try shopping at a luxury store underdressed as you normally dress for housework or shopping for food. Afterwards you shall visit the same store wearing something glamorous and see how the staff will react to you. The difference on their attitude will tell you why. The same difference could be found in meeting a client or attending a job interview. The results could be quite different.
Our founder May Chan has come to realize that image is of paramount and her ambition is to aid professional people to move up the corporate ladder by changing their appearance and behavior. May is one of the few professionals in Hong Kong with a certified image qualification from the prestigious London Image Institute and Academy of Image Mastery. After servicing in the human resources industry for over 15 years, she has witnessed many cases where image ruined a person’s chances to advance. She also believed that most working women gave up their “image” due to time constraints. However she would like to demonstrate that managing family, career and appearance concurrently could be achieved. Image consulting is rare in Hong Kong but it could yield very powerful results.
The process is actually quite scientific from interviewing the client, setting up a colour profile, measuring the full body, researching suitable clothes and hairstyles, before recommending the proper outfits, makeup and hairstyles that will match the client’s personality, physique and job.
