The first time I remember being inspired to become an image consultant...

I met my first image consultant when I was 18 years old.  She was my mother’s school friend and because of her my mother started changing her wardrobe. I envied my mother for that and I requested my mother to send me to her friend for consultation as a reward  when I passed the exam to enter my university.

Out of alternative image consulting training provider options, how I decided on AIM despite higher course fees...

I heard a good testimonial from one of graduates. I also talked to the AIM team as well as Christina personally and they were very caring and helpful. 

My ``Ah hah!`` moment during an AIM course...

During the advanced course conducted by three Image Masters, I was told that I had been carrying lots of negativities in my life that had been stopping me from going forward in my career.  And I broke down because I had to face to the truth and I felt much better after that.

The AIM course has benefited me personally and professionally in several ways...

I became more confident and positive. I made wonderful friendships with course mates. I became more confident and assured because I have a wonderful mentor, Ms Christina and I managed to fill in lots of gap in my knowledge. I also found bigger potential in the Image Consulting business.

The three most important things I did immediately after the course and why I did them were...

  1. Shared with friends that I obtained a diploma from AIM and London Image Institute!
  2. Start doing consultation using Colour Smart System
  3. Changed my wardrobe to Bright Spring/Dramatic

Here’s what I accomplish within 6 months to a year after completing my course at AIM...

  1. Worked as a volunteer for elderly makeover project
  2. Professional profile photo shoots for myself
  3. Building my own website
  4. Group Workshop
  5. Photo shoots for a client
  6. Increase of business for individual consultation

When my friends ask about my course learning experience at AIM, here’s what I tell them...

  1. The course is very comprehensive and updated
  2. Fantastic support even after the course
  3. ColourSmart System is superior to any existing analysis tool.
