Using your Personal Image as a Professional Tool

We are all judged every day by everyone we meet, including our potential clients, so it is imperative to make a great first impression.

Ann specialises in educating people on making the right first impression, ensuring that your appearance and personal brand message is in-line with your chosen vocation. By learning the simple rules of dressing, you can use your personal image to portray a range sub-conscious messages to your clients to create rapport and gain their trust.

Ann Whitaker is a Colour and Image Consultant, operating the Brisbane branch of House of Colour. Born in England, Ann spent a large portion of her life in Africa, before moving to Brisbane in 2010.


This is a NEW venue for this group as we have outgrown the space at the previous venue.  We will meet initially (to chat/network./eat/drink) in The Stumps Bar and Grill ( delicious wood fired pizzas, steaks, burgers, wings and nachos… all for $12.50! ) and move up the The Den function room for the presentation.

The Chalk Hotel is very easy to find  and has plenty of parking.
We suggest parking in the rear carpark (off Reid St )


The Small Business Strategies (Brisbane) Meetup is held on the First Tuesday of each month from 12:00PM until 2:00ish.

It's a great opportunity for Small Business Owners to get together informally to network, share ideas and experiences and chat about problems and issues that they face in their businesses.  We will often have a guest speaker to talk on a particular topic, and encourage members to share their expertise with the group.

A typical timeline (not set in concrete) :

12:00pm -Arrive, have a drink & a chat, order meal & Eat
1:00pm - Discussions/Presentation start
2:00pm - Official finish

You are of course welcome to stay on and chat/network afterwards if you wish....
