Esther Stanhope is an Impact Coach. A former BBC Producer, she now talks the talk in the boardroom and coaches corporate individuals to present their presentations with more gusto and feeling. No more boring presentations on VAT - after a coaching session with Esther their voices will be heard !
Visiting Esther in her apartment in the heart of Spitalfields, London, my brief was to give Esther's image impact. Esther's previous work style was informal and relaxed. Not any more. Now public speaking and presenting to top corporate companies like JP Morgan and Deliotte she has to look the business.
As well as public speaking she also does one to one coaching. So we had the 'boardroom look' and the 'coaching look'. Esther needs to look dynamic, sharp and tailored but also keeping that creative Esther twist that suits her personality. Its her job to add colour to the boardroom and I wanted to express that in her style.
Brilliantly Esther had her colours done and although I'm not a fan of colour therepy, for Esther this worked as it enabled her to pick some fantastic pieces in strong colours that looked amazing with her skin tone. I also encouraged her to wear more red.
My goal was to give Esther confidence and fine tune her looks. I encouraged her to mix up her colours, not just wearing a colour with black but to mix colour tones to create more creative outfits. For Esther, a dynamic sharp polished look is integral so tailoring is key. I've encouraged Esther to wear bold statement necklaces and statement shoes to add a bit of theatre to her style. Esther fell in love with my skinny scarf which looked chic with her black jacket.
Esther was thrilled with her business style and over the next few months will waltz into the workplace feeling fantastic and correctly dressed for the boardroom. Go Esther! You look amazing.
