Lynne Marks, AICI CIM
“One of the most rewarding experiences in my life has been to partner with Christina Ong to design and develop the ImageAsia® programme.”
Lynne has an unparalleled background in all facets of image consulting and is among the most experienced image consultant trainers in the world.
After graduating from London University, she pioneered postgraduate research in Body Language and non-verbal communication skills, when they were virtually uncharted territory! Heading the image and Fashion Modelling department at the London College of Fashion, she became experienced in image, colour theory, design, tailoring, garment construction, fashion trends and forecasting, fashion show production, makeup and modelling. She produced, choreographed and directed hundreds of fashion show extravaganzas and trained and consulted internationally.
After moving to the US, Lynne opened London Image Institute with two divisions: Image Consulting Training and Corporate Consulting, offering programmes in Image Management, Executive Presence, Communication and Presentation skills, to companies such as American Express, The Weather Channel, Coca-Cola, AT&T and CNN Sports. She later joined forces with two other specialists in Corporate and Personal Branding and designed and delivered in-depth transformative programmes for the Executive and Management levels on Branding, Team Development and Executive Presence for multinational organisations such as United Airlines, Pacific Dunlop, Minnesota Mutual and Coca-Cola Enterprises. Her individual clients include some of the top US executives and politicians to whom she coaches visual, non-verbal, interpersonal communication, interview and presentation skills and personal branding.
In 2004, she took London Image Institute’s Image Consulting Training division international and one of the most rewarding experiences of her life has been the alliance partnership with Christina Ong, founder of the Academy of Image Mastery. Together, they designed and developed the ImageAsia® programme. Now, after a decade and a half of training successful image consultants in Asia, the ImageAsia® programme has become the most acclaimed and respected image consulting institute in Asia and the only programme offering two AICI Image Masters and a unique East-West approach to image consulting.
Lynne is the author of two image-industry bestsellers, a transformational coach, speaker and twice International President of AICI. She is dedicated to developing the careers of professional image consultants and continues to train them around the world.
