Community of Practice - Women in Business Group

Our Community of Practice - Women in Business Group will be held every third Thursday of the month at CSIRO, Bradfield Road, West Lindfield.

All women are invited to attend this group and meet regularly to share, learn and support each other. The meeting will conclude with a networking session.

Getting the “IT” Factorgetting noticed for the right reason

First impressions are crucial in today’s competitive environment.  Personal branding is important to define who you are and to ensure you are remembered at your best in the business world. Your personal branding is a combination of a personally styled wardrobe and your individual personality. This gives you the confidence to present yourself in the best possible light.

Soraya’s workshop will be a hands-on fun session.

  • Exploring colours and psychology – how colours illuminate, enhance and accentuate your best features.
  • Making the best of your body shapes - understanding body shapes and how to dress accentuating your best features.
  • Accessorising to enhance your basic outfits to express your personality and individuality.

Soraya will bring a treasure trove of accessories for you to play with and to practise your styling techniques.

***Please also bring along an item of clothing that you are unsure about - how to wear it, how to accessorise it.  Soraya can provide the styling advice you need!

Handouts provided.


This workshop is run by Soraya Raju.
