Testimonials from our business clients we helped get that edge, confidence and credibility
I found the session with Amanda incredibly valuable in regards to personal branding and how to align my style with my organisation’s identity. The workshops and activities were a great eye opener teaching us how people can make assumptions based on your clothing/appearance and how to ensure you dress for your body and colouring.
The presentation was incredibly useful and I have most definitely taken tips for my both my personal and corporate attire.
I would recommend Ask Amanda for both corporate and personal styling.
Thank you Amanda!— Vanessa Panos - Trade Marketing Executive - Coca-Cola Amatil
As an executive in a global firm, my image is important because of the amount of exposure I have both within my organisation and through public speaking engagements. While I was comfortable with my style, I knew it was it was conservative and I longed to wear colours other than navy, cream and black! To be honest, shopping for clothes was a chore because I didn’t know what colours and styles really suited me.
After spending an enjoyable two days with Amanda, I am very glad that I made the investment. A number of people have commented on the new palate of colours I am wearing, and that I somehow look more energised. My husband has commented that the subtle changes in my make-up are very effective – he can’t quite tell what is different, but he likes the effect. With the clothes that I bought during my shopping trip with Amanda, followed by a thorough clean out of my closet, I now have a wardrobe that works for me. Best of all, I know that next time I go clothes shopping I will know what to try and what to walk away from. That knowledge is going to save me time and money...and I will go home knowing that what I bought will look good.— Sara Watts, Chief Financial Officer, IBM Australia/New Zealand
Hi Amanda, I have received so much positive feedback from the ladies over your Style Strategy workshop you conducted at our national conference. They had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the content. The content was very informative and well paced. Very professionally presented but in a lovely relaxing atmosphere. Everyone said how comfortable they felt even though they had been a little anxious at the beginning worrying about feeling ‘exposed’ to their flaws. The general vibe of the room was that everyone learnt something and were very keen to get back and re-evaluate their wardrobes. The other positive was they were so happy to have a session such as this planned for them rather than being stuck on a bus somewhere. So again, ‘thank you’ from the bottom of my heart. You were a great success and presented a fantastic session.— Janice Collett - National Secretary - Australian Foundry Institute
Once a year I arrange a day to treat the Wives and Partners of our managers to thank them for the support they show their husbands and partners who go ‘the extra mile’ at work in our Adelaide Toyota Dealership. This year I enlisted the help of Amanda to treat the ladies to something that could help us all, Amanda’s Style Confidence workshop taught us about the importance of knowing how to work with our body shape, suitable colours to wear and also about ‘wardrobe capsules’. We all left with the knowledge of how to de-clutter, organize and plan our wardrobes.
Since then I have also completed Amanda’s full program – The Ultimate Makeover and couldn’t be happier, I am travelling overseas in the near future and know that since my shopping trip with Amanda packing will be easier than ever before. I now have an understanding of what styles suit me, what colours I should wear and the knowledge of what to look for when I go shopping, although I also know it’s much more fun to go shopping with Amanda!— Louise Kittle - Executive Assistant - Peter Kittle Toyota

Amanda - thank you so much for your professionalism in presenting to Council your Professional Image Building Programme.
The three part programme starting with your presentation on Professional Image directly followed by a one-on-one session with each team member to offer feedback and create an action plan, and a follow-up one month later to assess progress and offer support was an excellent approach that achieved our objectives.
My entire team appreciated your honesty and integrity and the one-on-one session to create an Action Plan for each member of our team proved to be a winner in as much it proved to them what they can achieve.
Your passionate, friendly and professional approach was outstanding and I would recommend your business to any other council or organisation.
Thank you once again.— Diana Adams - Team Leader Customer Service - City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters
I engaged the professional services of Amanda of Ask Amanda as I was looking for sound and practical advice on how to best present myself for media and business events.
The advice and guidance that Amanda provided encompassed a broad range of issues, not just in dress sense, but personal style, colour, and grooming as well.
With a two week deadline for a major award event Amanda was also able to access an exceptional designer to turn out just the right gown for the special event. With her special brand of one on one consultation Amanda has given me the guidance and tools to ensure that I can present myself in the best possible way each and every time.
I thoroughly recommend Amanda to any discerning person who desires to achieve the best presentation each and every time.— Terri Scheer - CEO - Terri Scheer Insurance Brokers Pty Ltd
Wanting to do something unique and to give something back to our team, at the end of a team building day, we engaged Ask Amanda to deliver a workshop on personal style - a fun, practical and engaging session, where everyone took away tips on what styles best suit their shape and express their personality via their clothing.
It also positively impacted self confidence, as it gave knowledge about how to make the most of your shape - important issues that can also positively impact confidence in the workplace. Yes this workshop was personal, but I saw it go broader than this, it gave team members a shared experience to talk about and the confidence to try different styles, impacting creativity and personal style.
I would highly recommend this workshop, either individually or for small teams.— Steph Roberts-Victory - Human Resources Manager - HomeStart Finance
People come to Elysion when they want to be the best they can be in life.
When it came time for the people from Elysion to look the best we could be, we turned to Ask Amanda. Amanda has an impressive understanding of image, colour and fashion and the expertise to put it in practice.
She showed us what colours suit us based on our skin tone, hair and eye colour. We learned the best style of clothes to wear and most importantly what not to wear. We are not experts but it is obvious now that we know more about image and colour than most fashion shop staff. Since our one-on-one coaching sessions with Amanda we have not wasted any more money on the wrong clothes. Amanda advised my wife on the best haircut for her face shape and took her to the ‘Ask Amanda Preferred’ hairstylist – Emmo, together they created a totally new and wonderful hairstyle for my wife. Weeks later, she is still getting comments on how great she looks!
If you are contemplating changing or improving your image or if you want to look fabulous I suggest you call Amanda. You will feel great.— Frank Spartalis - Partner - Elysion
As a professional business owner how I look is important to me. In the past I have made some disastrous wardrobe mistakes purchasing expensive suits that didn't work for me - though I could never work out why.
Now I do know why - under the guidance of Ask Amanda Image & Style Consultants one-on-one coaching program my wardrobe now reflects my style and personality, I make better purchasing decisions and know how to maximise my wardrobe. Shopping is so much easier for me as I am really clear about what works and what doesn't.
Thanks a million - you have saved me both time and money....not to mention feeling great too!— Judith - Owner - Judith Sellick Consulting
