Social skills are the most important, but also the most laking.

2.Powerful outfit

3.Powerful voice

Enunciation, volume, tone, the speed at which you speak are very important.

  2. Posture - Keep your head up high.





Outfit Guidelines.

  • It’s the first thing people see.
  • Your clothes need to fit properly
  • Darker colours project more authority - Doesn’t mean you have to dress head to toe in black. Even darker jewellery can assist with this. 


Mindset is so important!
