Owner of a Personal Development Company
“I learned so much about how the right style and colour can make a massive difference to my appearance! The experience is personally enriching. (b) I am excited to be able to use my new image consulting knowledge and skills to help people.”
It takes wisdom to know when to switch careers. Elsie’s story is about managing the different seasons in life. Her motto to be “Flexible, Humble and Positive” will inspire executives looking to transition a successful corporate job to do something of greater significance.
Elsie has had 25 years of strategic Human Resources professional experience jet setting across Asia, Australia and Europe in various senior management positions with multinational companies.
Gazing out the hotel window on one of her recent business trips, she couldn’t help but feel in her gut that it was time for change. Not being a person to act in haste, she narrowed down potential careers and did her research. She mapped out her future career plans to leverage her wealth of corporate experience while allowing herself to pursue more meaningful interests.
Elsie took the first step to learn about image consulting at the Academy of Image Mastery in Singapore and worked progressively towards making a successful career transition within a year.
Elsie believes in equal gender opportunities in the workplace. However, she observed that females, in particular, often lack self-esteem and tend to work doubly hard to be recognised for equal career opportunities. Through a holistic personal and professional development programme, her vision is to train and coach her clients to increase their career opportunities.
