What is new for Image North in 2017
Image North has had a successful past few years and is looking at expanding and offering more services. I am lucky enough to be related to a graphic designer and she has redesigned my website for me. Very exciting!
I have been travelling a lot for the past four years – prior to this I worked full-time and completed my workshops on weekends. Summer of 2012 I took the plunge and started working full-time from my home and travelling here, there and everywhere with my Dress to Impress workshop!

My speaker series program is either participating in a career fair or coming to ones class for an hour or so to present on one of my topics from Colours, Personality Style to Appropriate Dress.
I have done some private image consulting and this is the area I am looking at expanding in. I was lucky enough to help a lady from Barrie and her husband and thoroughl
