The role of the wardrobe in a challenging economy


“A professional look is your key to success”


Difficult economic times are familiar to Calgarians. During these times, we have learned to focus our efforts, become more prudent with our expenditures, and rely on our creativity.


A challenging economy can create new opportunities … we begin to open our minds to new possibilities we generally ignore when we are comfortable … indeed, now is the time to rise to our best … and seize the opportunities that we make for ourselves … “to take a negative, and turn it into a positive”.

not where you are today”


Now more than ever, we need to maximize on all our assets, and seek an optimized expression of who we are, what we stand for, and the vision we have committed ourselves to. When we engage with our clients and our stakeholders, we must be clear in our communication.


We must make sure that how we come across, and what we say are consistent. We get few chances to make a mark … so paying attention to what we wear is critical, because it sets the mood for every communication, every engagement, and every interaction we will have throughout the day. More often than not, people take more from non-verbal cues than from the verbal ones.


We must also plan what we wear based on who we expect to connect with that day, cognizant of what we want them to take away about us and our ideas … leaving nothing to chance. When in doubt, we should follow this axiom: “It is better to be over dressed than under dressed … be prepared when opportunity knocks” … we never know who we will meet, where we will meet them, and what doors they may be able to open for us … if we can impress them, they will be more willing to go the distance for us.


You only get minutes to make that first impression
… make it a lasting one.
