Top 10 Internationally
The South African Image Academy, led by the dynamic CEO Alette Winckler, stands out as the premier Image Training Academy in Africa, boasting a diverse community of over 995 students and consultants hailing from various countries such as Australia, Belgium, Botswana, Canada, France, Germany, Ghana, Ireland, Kenya, Mauritius, Namibia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States of America, and Zimbabwe. Its unwavering commitment to personal development and character building sets SA Image apart. Celebrities like Anna van Jaarsveld (Bobby’s wife), Rita Vermeulen (Andries’ wife), Dr Michelle van Zyl (Housewives van die Wynlande), Monique Eloff (Supreme Queen Mrs Global Earth), & Lana Joubert Makeover Specialist could not agree more.
SA Image firmly believes that true style goes beyond outward appearances, emphasising the significance of addressing internal beliefs about oneself and one’s abilities. According to Alette Winckler, “You can be dressed to the T, but if you believe lies about yourself on the inside, your style will have no impact nor last.” The academy’s unique approach focuses on nurturing confidence, revealing the authentic self, and fostering unstoppable internal transformations.
The impact of SA Image’s approach is evident in the numerous testimonials pouring into their office. Husbands express gratitude for their brand-new wives, while students joyfully recount how the course saved their marriages. The academy goes beyond being just an image consulting course; it catalyses profound personal change. SA Image stands out as the only course in Africa, and possibly the world, where the leadership prioritises witnessing change, growth, healing, and development in the learner before entrusting them to inspire similar transformations in others.
The transformative power of the course is attested by the multitude of changed lives, with testimonials and reviews providing a compelling narrative of its effectiveness. SA Image has reached new heights by securing approval from the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) for their Continuing Education Units (CEUs) program, accumulating over 13 CEUs. In the global landscape, only 30 courses boast this prestigious international accreditation, and in South Africa, SA Image leads with the highest number of CEUs in a single course.
Students, consultants, and the AICI unanimously endorse the academy’s impact, and it is now time for others to acknowledge the unparalleled benefits of SA Image’s transformative courses. The international accreditation and the resounding success stories underscore that SA Image is not just a choice but a necessity for those seeking comprehensive personal and professional growth.
What is Image Consulting?
In image consulting, consultants collaborate with clients to enhance their personal, professional, and virtual images. It encompasses a spectrum ranging from refining Dressing for Success and fostering Communicating With Confidence to cultivating proper in-person and online behaviour, encompassing everything from sitting with style to asserting oneself.
In simpler terms, as an Image Consultant, you have the opportunity to make a livelihood by engaging in various aspects, including:
1. Style Consultations – Guiding clients, such as advising an X-shaped individual to showcase their waist and a V-shaped client on patterns and colours that complement their physique.
2. Colour Consultations – Recommending vibrant choices like Yolk-Yellow over Mottled-Mustard.
3. Makeup & Makeup Tutorials – Applying makeup for clients or instructing them on self-application.
4. Mini & Maxi Makeovers – Implementing subtle changes or orchestrating complete transformations.
5. Masterclasses – Conducting group sessions to educate and captivate on beauty-related topics.
6. Etiquette and (N)etiquette – Providing insights on finding a place in public and cultivating a positive virtual presence.
7. Corporate Code of Conduct and Dress Workshops – Educating professionals on the significance of the company’s image, emphasising appropriate office attire and conduct.
8. Motivational Speaker – Sharing knowledge on topics that resonate with women, establishing a prominent presence in the ladies’ event sphere.
9. Blogger – Crafting engaging content on subjects like style, fashion, image, and a passion for life.
10. Fashion Stylist – Curating glamorous looks for models and beyond.
11. Magazine Shoots – Setting the stage for striking publication pictures.
12. TV Styling – Styling for satisfaction in the lights, camera, and action setting.
13. Visual Merchandising – Creating imaginative displays that impact asset acquisition.
Embarking on a career as an Image Consultant opens up diverse avenues where your expertise can positively influence personal and professional transformations.
