Join this event for a unique opportunity to learn how to enhance and refine your professional self image from the best in the business – Image Coach Extraordinaire and Founder of Vietnam International Fashion Week Trang Le!
Whether you are female or male, a new entry to the professional workforce, taking on a new role, or or a seasoned pro, you all can learn from this interactive workshop.
Like it or not, we all make judgments about others based on first impressions – appearance plus. Your personal image is a key part of whether others take you seriously and have confidence in your abilities. And playing it safe isn’t always the best approach.
Learn how to enhance your professional image and ensure you project confidence and authority in carrying out your professional role.
In this workshop, Trang Le will share general tips on professional image and carry out real-time professional image enhancement for two senior corporate leaders, EY Managing Partner Law Michael Beckman and AETNA Country Manager Minh Nguyen, both AmCham Governors. There will also be an opportunity for mini professional image makeovers for audience volunteers.
Don’t miss this opportunity to enhance your professional image! And stay for the follow-on networking reception!!
