Packaging

is what I do ...

Home

You have 7 seconds. Make them count.

As consumers, when we judge a product or a service, we are heavily influenced by its carefully crafted product packaging. Packaging creates strong visual brand aesthetics and ensures an immediate, and positive, first impression will be projected onto the core target market. Successful packaging design tells consumers a story that connects with them. It is a vehicle for a product to go from the shelf into the shopping cart.

Why not use this to your advantage? Executives who also focus on their strong visual aesthetics and careful packaging will successfully project a positive brand and professional image onto their target market, within seconds of first being seen. The visual image that you project onto the outside world reflects your personality, your work ethic, your lifestyle, your belief system, and your core values.

Are you someone to approach or to avoid? Do you have status and authority? Are you trustworthy, competent, and confident? Are you successful, hardworking, and intelligent? Are you happy and glad to be there? Do your appearance, behavior and the way you communicate convey a positive and professional image?

Researchers from NYU found that our brains make eleven rapid-fire major decisions about another person within the first three to seven seconds of meeting him or her. And those first impressions are tough to change because, once formed, we typically do not search for evidence to change that initial conclusion. What we look for is validation of our initial opinion, not contrary evidence. Remember the saying: “You only get one opportunity to make a first impression.”

Astute executives will apply a series of core marketing principles when creating their own personal brand and professional image and in doing so, will take control of their career and maximize their potential in the workplace. If you want to take control of your own personal marketing mix, with your professional image at the helm, Executive Image Consulting will empower you. Our experts use a combination of state-of-the-art visual branding techniques alongside key marketing principles to help you boldly define your market position and to project a professional image. We will work with you to develop visual and non-verbal strategies to ensure that within seconds of being seen, you will project a positive first impression and professional image to the outside world.

About

Sylvie di Giusto, Founder of Executive Image Consulting, Image Expert and Consultant hover background

HER EXPERIENCE

Sylvie di Giusto, professional image consultant and corporate trainer, has more than twenty years of corporate experience, educating and inspiring thousands of clients across Europe and around the world. She has long been fascinated by the power of image and the way people can use their personal brand to positively influence their own career. Having spent years observing, supporting and influencing people’s career paths, Sylvie has witnessed how important the role of a professional image is in setting a person apart from the competition and projecting his or her unique selling points. As an experienced consultant, a speaker retained by companies, an effective trainer, and an enthusiastic workshop leader, Sylvie is familiar with the typical challenges that professionals face in their workplace. She has a proven track record in corporate and individual counseling, using a results-orientated approach. Ultimately, her ability to empower people to influence the success of their own career and her passion for fashion has led to her launching Executive Image Consulting, based in New York City. It is here that she uses her extensive corporate expertise to help clients project a powerful visual image of themselves to the outside world.

HER CAREER

Throughout her career, Sylvie has held senior positions, mainly within Human Resources, for organizations ranging from 10 to 100,000 employees. Former companies and clients include: BMW, BASF, Bayer, Henkel, McKinsey, and Thomas Cook. She has become a recognized member of the international business community because she worked with every strata of management from CEOs to young executives within the finance, automotive, pharmaceutical, retail, and tourism industries. Living abroad gave Sylvie the opportunity to gain further qualifications in her field from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and  from the Academy of Professional Image and the International Academy of Image and Style in Australia. She is an active member of the Association for International Image Consultants and the National Speakers Association. Within the United States Sylvie is represented by the speakers bureau Global Top Speakers as well as in Europe by 5 Sterne Team.

HER PROMISE

Events, consultations and workshops with Sylvie applicable to the real world. Participants leave with valuable skills, techniques and tools they can put to practical use. Sylvie’s presentation style, while personable, is also authentic and professional so she won’t detract from the focus of the session with inspirational clichés or an overzealous manner. All consultations are personalized to meet the needs of the individual or corporate client, offering customized solutions that can immediately be put to use in the workplace. From individual counseling to corporate consulting, Sylvie puts her clients at ease and is mindful of their objectives and their busy work schedules.

HER LIFE

Sylvie has a multi-cultural background: Austrian by birth, French in her heart, Italian in her kitchen, German in her work ethic, and American by choice. She has lived a varied life traveling the world, surviving personal struggles, and accomplishing personal and professional goals. Her life is rich with unique experiences, not to mention the added joy of raising her two wonderful children in New York City with her husband. These off-stage experiences fuel her consultations, workshops, and events by providing tremendous content and energy. When she is not working, Sylvie volunteers her time with New York Cares; when she is not volunteering, she is spending valuable time with her family exploring the extraordinary country of the United States and the unique culture of New York City, this amazing place she is lucky enough to call home.

For Individuals

What does your image tell the world?

What message is your appearance communicating to others? How is that message impacting your business and personal relationships? We provide high quality image consulting services in a timely and cost-effective manner. As a result, we believe in making the process simple yet effective. Therefore, every service requires that you first complete an online Image Assessment (questionnaire). You will be provided with a detailed and comprehensive questionnaire designed to help you uncover your strengths and weaknesses in the areas of appearance, behavior, communication and your digital footprint. The conclusions from this assessment will result in hand-picked and personalized recommendations which form the basis for your session with your image consultant via phone, web, or in person.

Business Insider | Here’s What The ‘Boardroom Formal’ Dress Code Really Means

Sylvie di Giusto, Executive Image Consulting, New York, Corporate Trainer, Professional Image, Boardroam Attire hover background
Sylvie di Giusto, September 2014, Business Insider

‘In boardrooms we usually find the most important and influential group of individuals,’ says Sylvie di Giusto, author of ‘The Image Of Leadership.’ ‘Being a member of the C-suite, or a business partner or guest of of the C-suite, comes with the need for some kind of tactfulness and respect — and what you wear plays a big role. She says most image consultants still use terms like ‘business formal’ or ‘business professional, ‘which is a very general description of a basic professional business outfit,’ she explains. ‘However, working in corporations for nearly 20 years has taught me that this general and basic level is not enough. There is a difference between the professional wardrobe you choose to wear on a daily basis, and what you should be wearing when you enter the boardroom.’ Read more: Business Insider: Her’s what the ‘Boardroom Formal’ Dress Code really means

Sharon Williams, Owner of Real Beauty a to z anf author of “The ABC’s of Real Beauty” provide inspiration and information to help women (and men) break the bondage of negative self-image. Sharon’s book was born out of personal self-doubt and observations of women. It is designed to challenge the way we see and think about beauty, and asks the tough question: “who says?” Just like the old adage, ‘beauty is only skin deep, this book provides somewhat of a spiritual twist to help women see themselves for all that they truly are.

Sylvie di Giusto, June 2014, www.businessinsider.com

Sylvie had the great pleasure of talking to Business Insider why you shouldn’t necessarily follow this year’s fashion trend in the office: “The biggest problem with the trend, she says, is that it doesn’t allow you to ‘tell a clear story. She says your clothes can say a lot about you — ‘and in the workplace, I want people to tell a consistent story, whether it’s that they’re trustworthy, reliable, fun, or approachable.’ The problem with short suits: they blend two stories at once.

OTHERS CAN OVERRIDE THEIR INITIAL INSTINCTS ABOUT YOU.
HOWEVER, THIS USUALLY INVOLVES SIGNIFICANT TIME AND EFFORT.

Top 10

New York City is the most exciting and dynamic city in the world. It is home to thousands of well-known as well as hidden shops, stores, boutiques, and brands. We constantly get asked by our clients for tips and favorite spots, since this vibrant, elaborate city has so much to offer. After scouring this amazing city for many years we decided to share the places we adore. We invite you to explore the magnificent Big Apple with us; we even provide you with a map to accompany you on your image transfer journey.

CLASSIC SUIT TAILORS FOR MEN IN NYC

It can be quite a challenge for almost any man: finding a suit that fits, suits his personal style, and is within his budget. New York offers so many shops, ateliers, and showrooms filled with men holding measuring tapes. With so many master craftsmen in one city you need to be sure you are talking to the right person. Here is the list with some of New York's best tailors.

YOUNG SUIT LABELS (BESPOKE/MTM) IN NYC

Don't get us wrong, we love a suit from Hugo Boss or Ermenegildo Zegna. However, you can buy a tailor-made suit that really fits you for nearly the same price. This might not be true for every bespoke suit, but it definitely is for a made-to-measure option. Here are suit tailors who will bring you the most innovative customization from every price point.

DRESS SHIRT MAKERS FOR MEN IN NYC

Since there are so many off-the-rack shirts, the idea of having a custom-made shirt still seems to be expensive and old fashioned to some. However, as long as you find a reputable tailor, the unbeatable fit, quality, and attention to detail is well worth what you will spend. We have listed some of the best places in New York to get your custom-made shirt.

DEPARTMENT STORES IN NYC

New York's department stores are like no other. Whether you are looking to buy the latest fashion trends, your next business outfit, or just plan a walk through, there is a New York City department store for every style and budget. If you want to shop in one of the famous New York City department stores, you have come to the right place. Here is a list of the best department stores in New York.

 

 

UNIQUE AND INDIVIDUAL EYEWEAR IN NYC

Each year, more than 30 million people worldwide purchase a new pair of eyeglasses. Most of them buy their pair in one of the big and famous store chains. However, since eyeglasses can also bring a touch of sophisticated charisma or can lend you an educated edge to your image, we recommend you take a look into some of the smaller and more specialized shops. All you have to do is to check this list of unique and individual eyewear shops in New York and then choose the right frame wisely.

BESPOKE FOR WOMEN IN NYC

In the old days, women went to a dressmaker and men went to a tailor. This might still be the reason that we don’t find a lot of obvious options and tailors for women to buy bespoke or made-to-measure clothes. Even when we found some tailors, many of them gave us a second-best attitude. Anyway, here is a list of reputable tailors who also provide women with perfectly fitting, high quality bespoke, or made-to-measure clothes.

BESPOKE ON THE INTERNET

'Bespoke' and 'Internet' are somehow a contradiction in terms. A true bespoke experience includes going into your tailor's shop for multiple fittings and ends with a 100 percent hand-made perfectly fitted suit for you. It is impossible to get a suit fitted that way online and made exactly for you. In addition, most online providers make made-to-measures pieces but just don't label them. It is a modern approach to buying a suit, and we don't want to hold back this list of online shops.

OUTLETS IN AND AROUND NYC

Outlet malls exploded in popularity in the last several years and became one of the fastest-growing retail segments in the US. However, most of them are located in the middle of nowhere, far away from New York. Real estate and rental prices are more affordable out there and cheap merchandise is located far from its full-price counterpart. You won't find a Gucci or Hermes outlet opening on Fifth Avenue anytime soon. Instead, you have to make your way out of the city like many budget-conscious shoppers regularly do.

 

CONSIGNMENT SHOPS IN NYC

To some of us, consignment shops still conjure up images of dark and dirty stores, where people try to sell unwanted clothing or donate to benefit a charity. But for savvy shoppers who love luxury items, that perception has been changed during the last few years. Many New Yorkers seem to cleanse their closets and trade their treasure in for a few dollars. Here you can find a list of stores that carry a large variety of sometimes ridiculously affordable designer clothes.

SHOE REPAIR PLACES IN NYC

Shoes aren't free, right? Unfortunately not. Therefore, you better maximize your investment and treat your shoes nicely, as they should be treated. However, despite how well you take care of your shoes, there will come a time when the shoe might tear apart. Here are New York's best places to take your pair of shoes for a shine or to repair.

GROOMING CLUBS & BARBER SHOPS IN NYC

Wearing well-tailored, stylish, and expensive clothes is indeed important. However, clothing almost means nothing if underneath is not also groomed. Just like women have their beauty routines, real gentlemen must have their regular grooming routine, which includes hair, nails, skin, and teeth. Here you can find a list of New York's best grooming clubs and barber shops where specialists deal with these key areas.

FLASH SALE SITES ON THE INTERNET

Sample sales are one of those typical things bargain hunting New Yorkers love. But instead of lining up at some unglamorous hour for the privilege of shopping in a crowded showroom you should also consider joining some online flash sale sites. Daily, limited-time, and limited-quantity private sales events for discounted luxury designer brands make shopping even more fun. Here is a list to help you get started saving money.

First and lasting impressions – learn from the Horses

First and lasting impressions – learn from the Horses

I once developed and organized a leadership seminar for a group of twenty high potentials of the retail and tourism company I worked for. The participants were quite surprised to find out that their trainer was not a person; instead, we trained them with the help of horses.

Our brain makes 11 major decisions

Our brain makes 11 major decisions

There’s emerging science that links the seven-second rule to measurable brain activity. In 2009, neuroscientists at New York University and Harvard University identified the neural systems involved in forming first impressions of others. The findings, which show how we encode social information and then evaluate it in making initial judgments, also suggest that it’s not just one thing that people judge about us in those seven short seconds after meeting us, but at least eleven different factors.

You have 7 seconds! Make them count!

You have 7 seconds! Make them count!

“One…two…three…four…” When I lead a seminar, I usually enter the room or stage and count out loud to seven. Then we discuss what just happened in the minds of the participants. Without knowing anything about my background, skills, or history, the members of my audience made significant decisions about me. They already have decided if this training will be fun, or not. If I’m knowledgable in my area of expertise, or not. If I’m a successful business owner, or not. If this will be a great session we’ll spend together, or not.

You must look like a leader, long before you are one

There’s a very common saying within my industry that I’m sure you’ve heard: “Dress for the job you want to have, not for the one you currently have.” I tend not to use this little homily because it sounds so small, so irrelevant, so superficial, and so sketchy. I want my clients to simply focus on their willingness to become leaders. And if you want to become a leader, you should look like one long before you are one.
