Image Management for Senior Professionals – Building an Impactful Personal Brand

Contemporary business is all about “Branding”, “Packaging” & “Marketing” the products and services in a refined and eye-catching manner. How an organisation presents it products and services becomes the key to customer delight and satisfaction.

Organisations spend millions in their Marketing budget to present their offerings in a visually appealing manner. You could be the market leader in your product or service, but to attain this leadership position, the Chief Protagonist is the employee who sometimes gets relegated to the background. Ultimately what differentiates a successful organisation is its PEOPLE. They are the driving force behind the growth and success of the organisation.

Hence it becomes the prime responsibility of the organisation to nurture its employees, motivate them and equip them with the necessary skills and ability to propel the organisation to greater heights.

Investing in building the Image of your High Potential /Senior employees particularly those in Leadership Roles or aspiring for Leadership roles is as important as your Marketing Strategies.

Organisations need to help employees present a professional image and put their best foot forward. This not only helps them grow professionally but also brings credibility to the role and position they hold.

After all, they are heading functions/projects/teams/initiatives and inevitably are the “face” of the organization. Heads of various functions/departments like Finance, IT, HR, Marketing, Sales, Operations and Administration or any other support function/role, who are integral to the growth of the organization also need to present the right image

“Their image becomes synonymous with that of the organization. Are you confident that your employees are putting their Best Image forward?”

Is the visual presentation of your employees’ in-sync with your company’s brand positioning and quality of your offerings? Do your employees in critical positions LOOK THE ROLE? Do they present that PERSONA when they enter the room/meeting?

Anooba keeps it simple and classic with white trousers, pink georgette blouse, white sandals & a grey printed scarf. Very elegant for a person in a leadership role.

If you prefer Indian wear, try a kurta/tunic with a palazzo combination. Meena is wearing a light pink chickan kurta with white palazzo and beige sandals.

Vision for 2016

“If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you do not have to be pushed, the VISION pulls you.” – Steve Jobs

2015 has been nothing short of exciting, enriching and rewarding. A year of many firsts and new experiences. We revamped our website making it more informative and also a visual delight, welcomed new associates; Lataa Seth & Meena Jagtiani, reached a milestone of 100 workshops, conducted sessions for an entire organisation & its subsidiaries of more than 500 employees and so much more.

It was not a smooth ride. We did encounter a lot of speed breakers and barricades which left us enriched with experience on what not to do. There were months with little or no activity but there was never a moment of doubt about our products and capability. Instead we took this time out to learn, bring in new ideas and creative inputs to our work.

Our humble journey began with individual consulting and progressed towards trainingWe have in our journey so far:

  • Trained over 3000 students from the Business schools
  • Conducted 100 workshops between Business schools and Corporates
  • Completed 40 Individual Consulting assignments
  • Our first open workshop ANOKHEE which was a huge success.


It gives me a great sense of achievement and pride to say that as a team we have been able to do some really amazing things. I take this opportunity to thank all our team members: Flavia Vaz, Anooba Kini, Anita Sahoo, Lataa Seth & Meena Jagtiani for their unstinted support and co-operation in helping Image Gurukul achieve this.

I am also thankful to Image Consultants, Ektaa Rupani and Sonia Dubey for their association in Image Gurukul workshops.

A special thanks to Image Consulting Business Institute-(ICBI)Rakesh and Suman Agarwal for their continued support and guidance in helping Image Gurukul reach this landmark.

In every meeting with Rakesh I came away with several key takeaways, which I effectively used both in my training; consulting and in formulating the strategy for Image Gurukul’s growth.

Our heartfelt gratitude to our clients in the Corporate world; Business schools & Individuals for reposing their faith and giving us an opportunity to serve them. We would be failing in our duty if we did not mention the staff of ICBI who have always made themselves available for any support or assistance required by Team Image Gurukul.

So have we achieved everything that we set out to? An open road awaits and there are so many more new aspects of Image consulting & Training that we need to discover. 

 So what next?

“This is the question which comes foremost to my mind. The journey has just begun and we have miles to go. We are now at a threshold and the way ahead becomes even more challenging, making it imperative to constantly reinvent & stay relevant, to be successful.”


Image Gurukul is committed to being relevant and in providing top of class service to all its clients; Business schools, Corporates and Individuals.We are constantly working towards CUSTOMER DELIGHT by focusing on creating VALUE FOR CUSTOMER IN OUR OFFERINGS.

My passion for Image Consulting has been unfailing and we as an organisation will work with greater vigour and passion to continue this journey.

In our endeavour to build an organisation, we are always looking at accomplished professionals/partners (Image Consultants and Trainers) to assist fuelling our growth. Like the good saying goes:

“Vision is not enough, it must be combined with venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps, we must step up the stairs….” Vaclav Havel.
