The desire to be an image consultant came about in 2014 when I moved to another country. Branding has always been my passion, but I realised that branding for people was much more fulfilling.
Out of alternative image consulting training provider options, how I decided on AIM despite higher course fees...
I wanted a global and East-meets-West approach to image consulting. I searched for consulting programmes online and found AIM. I truly found a world-class learning institution!
AIM opened my eyes to the world of colour, proportion, and image building. I loved how each person had distinct colours, shapes and dimensions that could be transformed into works of art. It was through the course that I realised I was an artist.
The benefits I gained from AIM are priceless. As an individual, I felt my own transformation take place inside and out. I learned to appreciate how each person is a work of art. As a professional, my entry into the image consulting world through AIM has opened doors of opportunities I never thought I would have. It is such a blessing to be able to make a difference in other people’s lives.
I practised, practised, practised. As a new world of technical knowledge on image consulting was opened up to me, I spent time practising on family and friends. I read up and bought the needed tools for me to practice and grow my skills.
Within a year after completing my AIM course, I was able to set up my own image consulting company and build my network. This enabled me to connect and serve people of different nationalities.
- World Class Mentor – Christina Ong is one of the best mentors one can ever have in the image consulting industry. Her experience and support will give you a headstart in the industry.
- Innovative tools and techniques – AIM ensures that learning tools and techniques are up-to-date and innovative, fostering great learning among students.
- Supportive Community of Image Consultants – AIM opens up a strong support system for aspiring and beginner image consultants. Friendships across countries is a big bonus too!
If there was something you could have told yourself before you started the course, what would it be?
Keep an open mind. There is so much to discover and learn in the world of image consulting.
