 WHICH PROGRAM BELOW IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Sylvie di Giusto, Event Speaker, 7 SecondsYOU HAVE 7 SECONDS.
MAKE THEM COUNT!

BEST AUDIENCES:     sales teams, customer-facing employees, annual meetings, user conferences, entrepreneurs, associations

People we meet make quick decisions about us. Should they hire us? Trust us? Buy something from us? It takes a blink of an eye, and like it or not, you are going to be judged. Your initial imprint on your customers is an important start to building a relationship with them. It will set the tone for the entire customer experience and influence their decision-making process. The good thing is that this impression is something you can control. Sylvie will show you how you can influence the message you send to others, and make customers buy faster . . . and more often.

MY PROMISE TO YOU:      Participants walk away with a clear understanding of the impact their first impression has on the customer’s decision-making process and how they can use their professional appearance, behavior, and communication to keep and attract customers.

DURING THIS EYE-OPENING, INTERACTIVE KEYNOTE, YOUR AUDIENCE MEMBERS WILL ACHIEVE THE FOLLOWING:

  • Learn about the psychology behind first impressions and how these impressions impact the way they see themselves and the world sees them.
  • Find out what their first impression really says about them, their personality, their lifestyle, their belief system, or their core values.
  • Gain clarity about the way their first impression impacts the way their customers think about the products and services they offer.
  • Understand what unconscious bias is and how their customers’ snap judgments influence them and their decision-making process.
  • Discover the four variables of their first impression and how they can adjust each to work in their and their company’s favor.
  • Learn how a bad first impression can affect their own and their company’s reputations.
  • Determine the many opportunities they have in any customer-facing environment to leave a positive first, last, and lasting impression.

BENEFITS FOR YOU AND YOUR ORGANIZATION:

  • Potential clients are more likely to buy your products or services if they are impressed from the moment they experience your brand.
  • Employees gain awareness that every contribution is relevant for a spectacular customer experience.
  • Consistency between your employees’ personal identity and your strong corporate image builds trust and increases sales.

BENEFITS FOR YOUR AUDIENCE MEMBERS:

  • Clear and authentic self-presentation leads to increased confidence and self-esteem.
  • Awareness that even if industry, corporate culture, or clients’ expectations require a specific first impression, there is still space to showcase their authentic selves.
  • Being perceived as someone who reflects the corporate image and is dedicated to the business will open opportunities.

DEFINE YOUR STORY IN A CORPORATE WORLD

After audience members learn how important their first impression is for their own and their company’s reputations, they often try to put into words what they stand for, what they want to be known for, and how they can show any customer what they have to offer. This add-on allows audience members to discover their unique talents, strengths, and specific skills and explore how they can benefit their company’s and their own reputations. Audience members will create a personal brand statement that summarizes their unique promise of value, including personal and professional “catch lines” that will help them share their unique expertise with others and create name recognition for themselves and their brand.

Sylvie di Giusto, Event Speaker, The Image of LeadershipTHE IMAGE OF LEADERSHIP—HOW LEADERS PACKAGE THEMSELVES TO STAND OUT FOR THE RIGHT REASONS

BEST AUDIENCES:    managers, high potentials, onboarding programs, women initiatives, government, associations, annual meetings

The most successful leaders make an unforgettable first impression. They immediately reveal who they are, what they represent as a leader, and how they serve the organization they work for. They influence the message they send to others by displaying a strong executive presence and by being mindful of the first impression they leave behind for their employees, clients, shareholders, and the industry they are part of. Sylvie will share how successful leaders shape and mold that first impression in their and their company’s favor.

MY PROMISE TO YOU:     Participants walk away with a clear understanding of the impact their first impression has on their leadership abilities and how they can use their appearance, behavior, and communication to be perceived as confident, authentic, professional, controlled, and respectful.

DURING THIS INFORMATIVE, INTERACTIVE KEYNOTE, YOUR AUDIENCE MEMBERS WILL ACHIEVE THE FOLLOWING:

  • Learn about the psychology behind first impressions and how their professional imprint needs to create an aura of executive presence.
  • Gain clarity about the four variables of their first impression and how they can create an impression that represents themselves as the leaders they deserve to be.
  • Understand core principles that help others perceive them as confident, authentic, professional, controlled, and respectful leaders.
  • Learn about the consequences a bad first impression can have and the way employees and colleagues perceive them.
  • Determine the many opportunities they have as leaders to leave positive first, last, and lasting impressions.
  • Understand the importance of leading by example to establish trust and respect among employees.
  • Learn concrete ways to improve their ability to lead.

BENEFITS FOR YOU AND YOUR ORGANIZATION:

  • Great leaders lead by example. By walking the talk they become leaders in your organization who others want to follow.
  • Consistency between leaders’ understanding of personal identity and strong corporate image builds trust.
  • Clarity about what executive presence means within the context of corporate culture and industry requirements.

BENEFITS FOR YOUR AUDIENCE MEMBERS:

  • Clear and authentic self-presentation leads to increased confidence, self-worth, and self-esteem.
  • Being perceived as someone who reflects the corporate image and is dedicated to the business will open opportunities.
  • It can ultimately translate into a promotion, more assignments, and the respect of peers and senior management.

DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS PROFESSIONAL IMAGE

Whether managers have to tell employees they have crossed a line by not dressing according to their company’s dress code, make an employee aware of his or her offensive body odor, or tell an employee about a discriminatory post on his or her Facebook profile, these uncomfortable conversations at work are never easy. However, avoiding these conversations can lead to a lack of performance or to disrespect, bullying, harassment, missed opportunities, or financial penalties, which ultimately will have a negative impact on the company. During this session, participants will learn how to prepare for these conversations and receive a six-step process that leads them from preventing an issue to truly helping an individual. They will practice along with a seven-step guideline and script that helps them communicate issues in a respectful way. And they will gain clarity on when to involve human resources or legal by determining the dos and don’ts during these conversations and topics they should not address.

Sylvie di Giusto, Event Speaker, UniformYOUNIFORM™—HOW TO ATTRACT AND ENGAGE CUSTOMERS IF EVERYONE SHOWS UP THE SAME

BEST AUDIENCES:     franchiseairlines and travel, military and public sector, hospitality and resort, restaurants and food service, retail and supermarkets, hospitals and medical practices

Uniforms can be an effective tool for raising brand awareness or instilling trust and confidence among others. It might be tempting to think that consistency in uniforms automatically affects someone’s self-image or the image of an organization. However, many people struggle to represent themselves authentically while still representing their profession in an exemplary manner. Sylvie helps them understand that professional appearance is so much more than a uniform. Sending a strong positive message requires them to take pride in how they look and to ensure that team members do the same to show unity, integrity, identification, authority, and professionalism.

MY PROMISE TO YOU:     Participants walk away with a clear understanding of how their uniform establishes a professional image that attracts and retains customers and is an integral part of their professional appearance, behavior, and communication.

DURING THIS INFORMATIVE, INTERACTIVE KEYNOTE, YOUR AUDIENCE MEMBERS WILL ACHIEVE THE FOLLOWING:

  • Learn about the psychology behind first impressions and how wearing a uniform impacts the impression they leave.
  • Gain clarity about the four variables of their first impression and how a uniform is just one—yet the most important—part of their impression.
  • Understand core principles that help them be perceived as confident, authentic, professional, controlled, and respectful, despite their uniform.
  • Learn about uniform maintenance and gain clarity about the details in their dress code policies that are related or unrelated to wearing a uniform.
  • Learn about the consequences a bad first impression can have on themselves and the way others perceive them.
  • Realize the many benefits they and their employer have by providing uniforms to their employees.
  • Understand the importance of leading by example to establish trust and respect among employees.

BENEFITS FOR YOU / YOUR ORGANIZATION:

  • Consistency within your workforce can immediately establish a professional business image that attracts and retains customers.
  • Employees’ awareness of the importance of wearing uniforms helps brand and differentiate their business in the markets they serve.
  • Clarity about the responsibility you have as “walking billboards,” promoting a company’s products, services, and brand.

BENEFITS FOR YOUR AUDIENCE:

  • Uniforms promote a sense of team spirit and a sense of belonging that will influence the personal success of each employee.
  • Realizing the many benefits they have when provided with a uniform, from saving time and expenses to being perceived as an authority figure.
  • Gaining pride and responsibility by being perceived as “brand ambassadors” inside and outside the workplace.

DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS ABOUT PROFESSIONAL IMAGE

Whether managers have to tell employees they have crossed a line by not dressing according to their company’s dress code, make an employee aware of his or her offensive body odor, or tell an employee about a discriminatory post on his or her Facebook profile, these uncomfortable conversations at work are never easy. However, avoiding these conversations can lead to a lack of performance or to disrespect, bullying, harassment, missed opportunities, or financial penalties, which ultimately will have a negative impact on the company. During this session, participants will learn how to prepare for these conversations and receive a six-step process that leads them from preventing an issue to truly helping an individual.

AUDIENCE INTERACTION
THAT GOES FAR BEYOND “RAISE YOUR HAND IF…” QUESTIONS

Sylvie di Giusto, Audience Interaction, Event Speaker

Memorable experiences that are fun, interactive and informative

Sylvie believes that emotions are the gatekeepers of our memories. That’s why, to deliver a truly memorable experience, she takes attendees through the emotions of joy, reflection, self-attention, and laughter. She does the unexpected, keeps them engaged and on their toes, and creates moments of surprise. To reinforce the key concepts of her topic, she lets them experience what their first impression actually says about them. These interactions bring the audience members closer to each other and closer to embracing the ideas Sylvie shares. If you are looking for a keynote speaker who will stand behind a podium and lecture about theories, Sylvie is not a great fit for your event, because she knows that speaking is never about the speaker.

No matter the group size or format, your attendees will listen, talk, discuss, practice, move, vote, interact, and, most important, laugh with Sylvie during her presentations. She uses modern presentation techniques that include live polling, social media communication, and much more. Each of her interactions with the audience makes them feel as if they are part of the story, part of something relevant that will help them far beyond the time they spend with Sylvie.

It’s about engaging the audience and making them the star of her presentation.

THE IMAGE OF LEADERSHIP

How leaders package themselves to stand out for the right reasons

The Image of Leadership is the result of Sylvie’s journey through two career paths: one as a human resources professional and the other as a personal branding expert. The title reflects the reality that everyone should acknowledge: true leadership manifests itself in ways that are both seen and unseen. This book will take you step by step through the development of your professional imprint. The focus will be on what people perceive about you—with an emphasis on your appearance and image. It is written to be concise, easy to read, and entertaining for leaders at all levels.

Sylvie di Giusto, Event Speaker, Next Book, Why?

W H Y ‘_  _ _ _  _ _ _ _  _ _ _ _ ?

Coming to your bookshelf Spring 2019

The internet has fundamentally changed the way people find, discover, connect, communicate, share, and think about each other. Over the years, many of us shifted from an observer to a contributor, from a spectator to a participant, or from a private to a public figure. And while you cannot control the fact that you leave a digital footprint, consciously or unconsciously, on the internet, you actually still can control what your footprint is. In her next book, Sylvie will reveal how to be prepared instead of scared and how to create an online brand that helps you achieve your next promotion, your next job, your next sale, your next speaking gig, or whatever you are hoping for.

THE IMAGE OF LEADERSHIP IS FEATURED IN THE C-SUITE BOOK CLUB

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM SYLVIE

I UNDERSTAND THE CHALLENGE OF FINDING JUST THE RIGHT SPEAKER

Sylvie di Giusto, Start Here

[ Fill in your Name ],

I have been “one of you” for twenty years and understand the corporate and meeting world like few other speakers do. In my prior role as the head of an international management academy, I was responsible for hundreds of events, from small corporate sessions to large conferences and found myself spending days searching for the perfect speaker. Today, I am grateful to know both worlds. Your professional reputation rests on the keynote speaker you select for your upcoming event, and I will do whatever is necessary to make sure you and your organization receive outstanding feedback.

I promise to make this a memorable and unique experience for them. Last, I want you to know that I am not a “diva” to work with. Others might wonder what I mean by that. But for you and me, there is no further explanation necessary. In fact, I take tremendous pride in being low maintenance and easy to work with. There are only a few requirements I have to make my life and yours less stressful and more efficient. I don’t think that I state anything revolutionary below. Instead, I know that it helps to understand what we can expect from each other.

I understand that the focus of your upcoming event is not on me, and it’s not on you. It’s on them—the attendees.

Sylvie di Giusto, Signature

START HERE! Find everything you need to know about me to decide if I am a great fit for your event.  If you need more, please feel free to reach out and send an e-mail to my office manager, Jamie.  She’s always happy to help, or can schedule a call!

“Her workshop was a huge hit and enjoyed by all.”

Sylvie spoke at BD+C’s Women in Design Conference last week. Her workshop was a huge hit and enjoyed by all. She’s a fabulous speaker and I would recommend her for any industry!

Amy Katz | Managing Director Conferences and Tradeshows | G2 Marketing and Events

“Sylvie opened for our event and absolutely hit a grand slam for our highly successful event, viewed by over 4000 Airmen…”

As a senior military leader who is responsible for growing leaders, I’m always on the lookout for professionals who can inspire and educate our Airmen. One of my roles as a Vice Commander of an Air Force Base is to serve as the director for our various professional and personal developmental programs. One of our premier programs is called LIFT (Leaders Inspiring For Tomorrow). This year’s program focused on ‘building the leader in you’ and was specifically designed to showcase incredible leaders, who reside outside the military environment, who can provide the tools necessary for our Airmen to lead a 21st Century military force. Naturally, Sylvie was at the top of my list to book as one of our eight keynote speakers.

Sylvie opened for our event and absolutely hit a grand slam for our highly successful event, viewed by over 4000 Airmen, Civilian Employees and Community leaders (both live in-person and via live-stream). Her meticulous and flawless talk along with her dynamic speaking-style, content and entertaining audience participation techniques, kept our Airmen laser-focused on her delivery, message and her teachings. Dozens upon dozens thought Sylvie’s presentation was a model to follow when it comes to public speaking and delivering vibrant content. In the end, our Airmen learned not only the value of a first impression but further benefited from her expertise in online image and reputation management…vital tools given today’s digital environment. This was a valuable part of her program given the diversity of our workforce. We cannot thank Sylvie enough for all she’s given us and look forward to having her as our guest in the near future.

Scott Heathman | Vice Commander | Airforce | Fairchild Base

“She delivered a dynamic, interactive, and thought-provoking presentation…”

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Sylvie Di Giusto as an expert in the field of personal branding. She delivered a dynamic, interactive, and thought-provoking presentation to Seattle Rotary (a group of 400+ business and community members dedicated to leadership and service). Sylvie engaged the group from the second she stepped on stage. She is passionate, relevant, and provides an important message to anyone in business.

Cindy Runger | Board Director | Unibank | President of Rotary Seattle

“She’s a true professional, a joy to work with and a fascinating individual…”

We were lucky enough to have Sylvie come talk to 600 of our team members about the importance of first impressions and how those first few moments can make or break the experience and ultimately the customers view of you and your products and/or services. Sylvie did an amazing job learning about our company, then she took that knowledge and created an excellent and interactive presentation that resonated with our people. The team is still talking about what Sylvie taught us and what happens in those first 7 seconds after meeting someone. She’s a true professional, a joy to work with and a fascinating individual.

Randy Katz | Operations Manager – DFW Flight Service | American Airlines

“She went above and beyond what we expected of her. She is a gem…”

Sylvie came and gave a program to 33 veterinary doctors from all over the US. They work along with sales reps in the veterinary pharma industry. Sylvie is AMAZING. She spent a lot of time with me and the other director beforehand so she could cater her message to what we were looking for – and then she nailed it. It just so happened that we were having headshots taken by a professional photographer that afternoon and Sylvie helped everyone with clothes, makeup, questions, etc. She even worked with the photographer before and after the shots were taken. She went above and beyond what we expected of her. She is a gem.

Mary Bryant | Director of Professional Affairs | Merial

“She’s a wonderful and engaging speaker and we heard nothing but RAVE reviews from attendees…”

Our experience with Sylvie was very positive from our very first interaction (she practices what she preaches)! She took the time to ask really good questions to customize her content to meet the learning needs of our attendees. She used her own technology to engage the standing-room-only packed session and produced for us (after the event) a summary from data she collected which will help us design continuing education. She’s a wonderful and engaging speaker and we heard nothing but RAVE reviews from attendees who were able to get a seat in her 300-seat sold-out session! I would hire her again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her to other meeting organizers.

Sarah Michel, CSP | VP of Professional Connexity | Velvet Chainsaw Consulting

“Sylvie ranks at the top for her public speaking and impressive presentation …”

Sylvie absolutely changed my thought process on so many things. She is simply amazing. I have attended many conferences and without a doubt, Sylvie ranks at the top for her public speaking and impressive presentation. I encourage everyone, not only read her book, but consider hiring her to help your business succeed!

Ronell Nolan | Chief Executive Officer | Health Agents of America

“If your goal is to up your organization’s individual people packaging, then look no further…”

Perhaps you have never experienced a session with Sylvie. If there is anything you should change this year, that should be top on your list. Her ability to connect with a large audience, engage them, and have them grasp what they have just seven seconds to determine is exceptional. If your goal is to up your organization’s individual people packaging, then look no further and get Sylvie in our corner! To date this program year Sylvie was the highest rated speaker and attendees still talk about her and how they can further connect with her.

Louis Lessig | Partner | Brown & Connery, LLP | President of Tri-State HRMA

“Members walked away with tools to apply right away…”

My company was looking for an image consultant for our Aspiring Leader Program, and I came across Sylvie’s impressive website. From the moment I submitted a request, asking for more information about her services and rates, Sylvie has been a consummate professional and subject matter expert. She presented at our Aspiring Leader Program participants and also presented to all of our members globally. (It was an open session.) My team is small and is tight on time (who isn’t? ϑ), but Sylvie made the whole process so easy. To help with our communication effort to our organization, she provided a marketing video on the upcoming speaking event, and she provided a marketing kit. This was extremely helpful with sending out communications to our members and to prepare for her presentation. I greatly appreciated. Prior to the event, Sylvie asked us to complete a questionnaire, which we completed a few days before the event. I was very impressed by how quickly and effectively she absorbed and understood the information about our organization and the goals of our event. In preparing for the presentations, Sylvie was very flexible in understanding how our technology worked and how each location was set-up. And even when we experienced some technical difficulties from our end during the open session, Sylvie did not miss a beat.Overall, we received fantastic feedback from our members! The activities Sylvie incorporated in the presentation were impactful and fun. And members walked away with tools to apply right away. Sylvie was knowledgeable, relatable and very approachable – and that meant a great deal to our members. We are looking forward to working with her again in the future!

Jennifer Gracheck | Program Development Consultant | Haworth

“Her enthusiasm and passion along with her experience in the industry will be a benefit to your organization and employees…”

I brought Sylvie into our agency to help the Senior leadership with their presence, image, and style. What I got was a more than I expected. Sylvie’s worship was great! It was interactive and everyone walked away with some good AHA’s. The material and dialogue were tailored to the audience, which made the information relevant. I would highly recommend Sylvie and her Image of leadership workshop. Her enthusiasm and passion along with her experience in the industry will be a benefit to your organization and employees.

Angela Sposato | Vice President Human Resources | 5W Public Relations

“Sylvie is one of the most engaging and creative people with whom I have had the pleasure to work…”

Sylvie is one of the most engaging and creative people with whom I have had the pleasure to work. She commands an audience and finds creative ways to engage and educate. Her experience and confidence are infectious and our conference attendees who were fortunate enough to hear her speak, left revitalized, informed and motivated. It was an honor to work with Sylvie and to read her recent book. What a wonderful talent and addition to any event or company!

Linda Shaifer | Education & Engagement Leader | Medical Tourism Congress

“Observable changes in demeanor and professional dress choices, which they attribute to Sylvie’s presentation…”

Sylvie conducted training sessions for our client-facing professionals based on her book “The Image of Leadership” that was well-received. The senior managers of the participants have noted observable changes in demeanor and professional dress choices, which they attribute to Sylvie’s presentation. What distinguishes Sylvie as a professional trainer is the care and attention she devotes to her diagnostic and customization process, which includes a detailed questionnaire to ensure the relevance of her material to the outcomes we desired. She truly delivered on what she promised.

Eileen Gallagher | Professional Development Specialist | Geller & Company

“She exemplifies the characteristics that she teaches…”

Sylvie was a pleasure to work with from the very start. She was responsive, well priced and accommodating to come into the office and meet with our team a few times. Her expertise in People Packaging and Image Consulting was clear from the moment we sat down with her. She exemplifies the characteristics that she teaches as well. The training itself was well organized and Sylvie immediately connected with the group. They viewed her as an expert and we will be using her teachings here at Nespresso to improve the overall image of the Brand Ambassadors here. I would definitely recommend Sylvie & People Packaging.

Carla Collins | Manager Talent Acquisition | Nestle Nespresso

“The amount of positive feedback I received after the presentation was incredible…”

I found Sylvie through a Google search when looking for someone to come and present on the importance of image at the workplace. I am so glad to have found her. Sylvie is highly knowledgeable in her area of expertise, personable, and engaging. The amount of positive feedback I received after the presentation was incredible! To top it off, Sylvie was flexible with our scheduling demands which made it all the more pleasant to work with her. If you are looking for advice or consultation in the area of image and leadership, I highly encourage you to consider Sylvie.

Linda Najok | HR Manager | American Express

“Participants that attended her workshop are still discussing what they learned and took away from her session…”

Sylvie was such a pleasure to work with! Creative, thoughtful, professional, and thorough are just a few of the positive traits that come to mind when I think of her and her quality of work. She took the time to learn our business and company so that she could tailor her message to the audience – and she nailed it. Participants that attended her workshop are still discussing what they learned and took away from her session. Sylvie clearly left a lasting (positive) impression. I look forward to working with her in the future and if you are searching for an executive image consultant, Sylvie is the one!

Monika Mikiciuk | Manager Sales Training | Prudential

“Attendees left the event with a clear understanding of why image matters and how to improve their “first impressions”…”

Sylvie is one of the premier experts on people packaging, first impressions and professional image – for a reason. Not only does she LIVE her brand, but she delivered an amazing package of information, entertainment and “wow” at the 11th Annual Smart Hustle Small Business Conference. Attendees left the event with a clear understanding of why image matters and how to improve their “first impressions”. Sylvie, THANK YOU for sharing your expertise with hundreds of professionals in New York City and I look forward to working with you many, many more times!

Ramon Ray | Smart Hustle Magazine Founder |  Smart Hustle Magazine

“Masterful in both content and form in sharing information…”

You were masterful in both content and form in sharing information essential for these individuals to prosper in their chosen fields. The class was very interested and involved in learning from you.

Carole L. Jurkiewicz, Ph.D. | Professor | Hofstra University

“Just the perfect combination I was seeking for my group…”

Just saw Sylvie speak about Image Consulting yesterday. She did a fabulous job. She was engaging, informative, and quite funny – just the perfect combination I was seeking for my group. I’m so glad I brought her in to speak at my event! I highly recommend her!

Gina Carr | Tribe Builder  & Marketing Speaker | Gina Carr | Harvard Club of Central Florida

“Demonstrates continuously extraordinary dedication and commitment…”

Sylvie has a profound understanding of an organization’s business objectives, is conceptually excellent, executes with extreme perfection and demonstrates continuously extraordinary dedication and commitment.

Dr. Matthias Bellman | Chief Human Resources Officer | Arcandor

“Great content, put in a nutshell and easy to understand…”

At her events Sylvie establishes a productive working atmosphere while using modern and varied techniques, great content, put in a nutshell and easy to understand. I absolutely recommend her without any reservations.

Dr. Emanuel Siregar | Human Resources Officer | Sanofi Aventis

 

“It was truly an eye opening, inspirational and rewarding presentation.…”

I recently had the opportunity to hear Sylvie present at the Women in Design + Construction event sponsored by Building Design + Construction magazine.

Through Sylvie’s Personal and Professional Image Roadmap, she provided a lighthearted, honest revelation of looking at one’s self and how can ‘all of that’ empower you within your individual career/journey?

It was truly an eye opening, inspirational and rewarding presentation. I would strongly recommend, Sylvie. Her presentation provides the perfect insight for any organization that is looking to empower its individual employees.

I am grateful I had the opportunity to hear Sylvie speak and am looking forward to following her programs moving forward. Thank you so much, Sylvie!

Leslie Rosa | Sales Manager | Diversified Communications HQ

“You have taught me something that will stick with me forever…”

This was the BEST presentation we had during this meeting and that I have ever experienced. There was so much value in what you left with us. I think you have taught me something that will stick with me forever and that I will be able to share with others in and out of work.

Christine Bronne | Boutique Operations Manager | Nespresso

“I heard someone say “Wow! How would you like to be the speaker to follow that?”

I had the pleasure of attending a symposium in which Sylvie was one of eight speakers of some notoriety. There were eight on the schedule, but only one that had a significant impact on me. While I was not familiar with Sylvie or her work, within just seconds of her taking the stage I was a fan along with the other 500 people in the room. That audience was captivated for the entirety of her presentation. In fact, I heard someone say “Wow! How would you like to be the speaker to follow that?” Sylvie is credibility personified and masterful at her craft, her presentation was so entertaining it is easy to overlook the fact that she provided more value in her twenty-minute address than many could provide in an hour. Her “value” wasn’t just interesting food for thought, she provided very accessible and actionable steps that anyone can implement to better understand how they are perceived in the modern world. Her message is important for anyone that must manage their image, I can’t recommend her highly enough and if given an opportunity I would go out of my way to see her again.

Cody Gravitt | Commander at 92 FSS | Airforce | Fairchild Base

“Literally brought down the house…”

Sylvie literally ‘brought down the house’! With energy, passion, personality, style and rock solid research, she had us all listening to every word with baited breath for each statement was a pearl of information dropped in the collective pool of our influence that I can already see the ripples of extension. She forced ME and every woman in the room to pause to closely introspect and write what exactly IS the impression we want the world to see when they make the 7 second impression she so dramatically taught us occurs every time we meet someone in a first encounter. THEN she set us loose on each other and had everyone take five minutes to STICK on the backs of our neighbors what impression they evoked! Wonderful interactive moment. I cannot possibly ENDORSE Sylvie enough and told the entire audience and anyone reading this to immediately read her book “The Image of Leadership” and even MORE importantly IF you have ANY possible option to have her speak at your organization or lead a workshop…BOOK HER ASAP before she becomes untouchable and inaccessible!

Lanalee Arabe Sam | Founder | Concierge Pregnancy Group

“One of the most interesting sessions I have ever sat through…”

“She was engaging and funny and really made you think…”

I had the opportunity to see Sylvie speak at the Meeting Industry Council of Colorado Education Conference in March. What a treat! She was engaging and funny and really made you think about how we judge others and how others judge each of us “in 7 seconds.” I thoroughly enjoyed the exercise she had us do with perfect strangers to see what they thought of us and I was able to secure a copy of her book The Image of Leadership…can’t wait to read it!

Karen Conklin | Independent Event Planner and Consultant | Walker Event Management 

“You gave us the tools, motivation and vision to share…”

I just had to take a moment to say ” thank you ” for being such a huge inspiration and motivation to all of us at the American Airlines advocate training last month.

Thanks again for your expertise and wonderful encouragement. With your help, I am looking forward to making American Airlines, not only the worlds largest airline but the best.

Brian Perry | United Airlines QC Line Check Airman B787 | American Airlines

“Since attending, I have already received numerous compliments in the way I represent my airline and myself…”

What a dynamic personality Sylvie is! I was fortunate to be at an American Airlines Image Advocate session where Sylvie spoke to us about “People Packaging”! What a brilliant concept! As consumers, we all look at product packaging. Sylvie really opened my eyes about marketing ourselves (how we package ourselves) and the impact it has on our passengers, management, and peers! Since attending, I have already received numerous compliments in the way I represent my airline and myself! Sylvie changed my thinking about EVERYTHING I do now! Amazing seminar! 10 stars to you Sylvie!

Sylvie is just what I needed to re-brand myself as our airline goes through this merger and is raising the bar with Image Branding. Sylvie is dynamic in presentation and really cuts to the core of what it takes to impress customers, management and even influence our co-workers. Book her NOW! You will walk away so inspired and renewed!

Anne Rowan | Flight Attendant | PSAAirlines

Amy Leis | Financial Advisor | Janney Montgomery Scott

Sylvie was dynamic, infectious and energetic speaker. She connected with our audience as a group and generously shared advice with individuals following the event. Sylvie explained complex ideas succinctly and in entertaining ways, demonstrating her likable ability to translate thoughts into forms to which we could all relate. It is clear Sylvie is a continuous “student” of how people are perceived. She is a leader among leaders in empowering clients to make powerful changes that ultimately improve the impression or perception others have of them.

Deb Spicer | Chief Executive Officer | Quantum Level Success

Traci Brown | Body Language Expert, Fraud and ID Prevention Expert | Traci Brown, Inc.

“Added huge value for those lucky enough to be in her audience…”

Sylvie is an outstanding presenter and communicator. She was not only captivating, but she provided solid information that had the group riveted to her message. She delivered professionally, powerfully and added huge value for those lucky enough to be in her audience. If you have the chance to hear this wonderful presenter, do it!

“It felt doable because of the way she delivered it…”

It was a privilege to hear Sylvie present in Tampa FL on Saturday. Her program was well designed, it kept our interest and she made the information very understandable. Although there was a vast amount of info that she delivered, I didn’t leave feeling overwhelmed. It felt doable because of the way she delivered it! As a bonus, Sylvie’s personality is warm, friendly and it’s easy to tell that she is in her business to serve her audiences. She was terrific.

Annette Fazio | Director of Operations | Cure Pain Naturally

“Powerful and engaging…”

Sylvie is a true pro. She delivered exactly what I expected from her amazing session. I learned how to make the most of my first seven second. Powerful and engaging. If you’re not working with Sylvie, you’re missing out on how you and your organization can make the best and most lasting impression.

Josh Packard | The Packard Group CEO |  The Packard Group

“Sylvie has the answers…”

Sylvie has the answers. She is a subject matter expert who explained things with funny stories and insightful metaphors. Every person in the room felt as if she was speaking to them and came away with actionable takeaways. Kudos!

Sarah Kohl, MD, FAAP | Consultant and Physician | Pediatric Alliance, P.C.

“Not only did I learn more in her presentation than I have learned in a VERY long time…”

I was fortunate to be in one of Sylvie’s audiences recently. Not only did I learn more in her presentation than I have learned in a VERY long time, but the manner in which she offered her information was so impressive. Right from the start, you knew you were in competent hands and the entire audience could feel her warmth and caring from the moment she spoke her first word. Genuinely caring and authentic, Sylvie has a way of connecting with an audience that is rare and refreshing. And the information she shared was so valuable, I am already (2 days later) using it to make my business better! If you ever have an opportunity to hire Sylvie as a speaker for your organization, or to attend one of her sessions, you will be glad you took advantage to learn from a caring and extremely competent pro!

When Sylvie walks into a room, she changes the ”temperature”. When Sylvie talks, people listen. When Sylvie writes, smart people read.

Jay Townsend | Political Consultant |  Jay Townsend

“Is one of the most exceptional professionals I have ever met…”

Sylvie knows and lives her brand. She is one of the most exceptional professionals I have ever met and everything she does is done at the highest level. Her speaking presentations are filled with tangible tools and valuable information to be able to be our best in business. I heard Sylvie speak in Washington D.C. and came away inspired to lift my game to the next level. Her presentation style is engaging, educational and entertaining. I recommend her without reservation.

✂ [ Short Bio for Marketing / Promotion– 150 Words ] ✂

“You’ve 7 seconds. Make them count!” says keynote speaker and corporate trainer Sylvie di Giusto, CSP, who helps individuals and organizations explore how people make up their minds very quickly about them, their leadership potential, or their company and either open the door for them or slam it shut. Sylvie’s nearly twenty years of corporate experience, her ability to empower people to influence the success of their own career, and her lifelong dream of being an American have led her to New York City, where she uses her extensive expertise to work for companies, professionals, and politicians who place great importance on the impressions they make. Sylvie speaks to audiences around the world about the importance of “First Impressions . . . and everything beyond” and takes them on an entertaining journey that reveals how the world sees them. She is the author of The Image of Leadership, the co-owner of the Studio for Image Professionals, and the creator of “How You Impress.”


✂ [ Long Bio for Marketing / Promotion – 350 Words ] ✂

“You’ve 7 seconds. Make them count!” says keynote speaker and corporate trainer Sylvie di Giusto, CSP, who helps individuals and organizations explore how people make up their minds very quickly about them, their leadership potential, or their company and either open the door or slam it shut. She has nearly twenty years of corporate experience in educating and inspiring thousands of clients worldwide. Throughout her career, she has held senior positions, mainly in human resources, at international organizations ranging from 10 to 100,000 employees. Today, she is a recognized member of the international speaking community, having presented to every strata of management—from experienced CEOs to young executives—within a variety of industries.

Sylvie is fascinated by the power of image and the way people can use their professional presence to positively influence their career and their business. Over the years, she has learned that it is better to craft the way others may perceive you rather than sit back and hope that their perception will be positive. Her ability to empower people to influence the success of their own careers, and her lifelong dream of being an American, have led her to New York City, where she uses her extensive expertise to work for companies, professionals, and politicians who place great importance on the impressions they make.

Sylvie speaks to audiences around the world about the importance of “first impressions… and everything beyond” and takes them on an entertaining journey that reveals how the world sees them. She invites employers, employees, and business owners to “get real.” She asks the necessary questions that enable attendees to think about professional image as much more than just fashion, clothing, and appearance. Sylvie is one of less than 12 percent of speakers worldwide who have received the Certified Speaking Professional designation by the National Speakers Association. She is the author of the Image of Leadership, the co-owner of the Studio for Image Professionals, and the creator of “How You Impress.”

When she is not working, Sylvie is volunteering with the National Speakers Association. When she is not volunteering, she is spending time with her family and exploring the extraordinary United States—this amazing place she is lucky to call home.


  Introduction at the Event [ 90 Seconds ] 

Would you like to know what people think of you when they think of you? [Pause for audience reaction]
Are you ready to learn how your visual appearance influences the way people judge you? [Pause]
Do you want to be perceived as successful, hardworking, and intelligent? How about in control and commanding? [Pause]

If you answered YES to any of those questions, you are in the right place. Our speaker today helps individuals and companies around the world explore how people make up their minds very quickly about them and either open the door for them or slam it shut. Sylvie’s nearly twenty years of corporate experience, her ability to empower people, and her life-long dream of being an American have led her to New York City. It’s where she “packages people.” YES! That’s what she does.

The only places where you’ll find her in flats are on the playground with her two young children in downtown Manhattan or when racing more than 102 floors in the stairwells of some of the highest buildings around the world. She is Austrian by birth, French in her heart, Italian in her kitchen, German in her work ethic, and American by choice.

Helping us today to understand how people judge us just in the blink of an eye, please join me in welcoming speaker and online shopping aficionado SYLVIE DI GIUSTO [Dee-Juice-Toh]!

✂ You have 7 seconds. Make them count! ✂

People we meet make quick decisions about us. Should they hire us? Trust us? Buy something from us? It takes a blink of an eye, and like it or not, you are going to be judged. Your initial imprint on your customers is an important start to building a relationship with them. It will set the tone for the entire customer experience and influence their decision-making process. The good thing is that this impression is something you can control. Sylvie will show you how you can influence the message you send to others, and make customers buy faster . . . and return for more.


✂ The Image of Leadership ✂

The most successful leaders make an unforgettable first impression. They immediately reveal who they are, what they represent as a leader, and how they serve the organization they work for. They influence the message they send to others by displaying a strong executive presence and by being mindful of the first impression they leave behind for their employees, clients, shareholders, and the industry they are part of. Sylvie will share how successful leaders shape and mold that first impression in their favor, and also that of their company.


✂ YOUniform—How to attract and engage customers when everyone shows up the same ✂

Uniforms can be an effective tool for raising brand awareness or instilling trust and confidence among others. It might be tempting to think that consistency in uniforms automatically affects someone’s self-image or the image of an organization. However, many people struggle to represent themselves authentically while still representing their profession in an exemplary manner. Sylvie helps them understand that professional appearance is so much more than a uniform. Sending a strong positive message requires them to take pride in how they look and to ensure that team members do the same to show unity, integrity, identification, authority, and professionalism.
