Keynote Speaker, Corporate Trainer & Image Consultant Sylvie di Giusto
As a professional Keynote Speaker, Corporate Trainer and Image Consultant, I use my multi-cultural background to work with leaders from around the world who place great importance on themselves and their reputation. With twenty years of corporate experience, a cutting-edge approach combined with a competitive mindset, and a passion for visualization I help professionals and corporations to explore how people make up their minds very quickly about them, their leadership potential or their company, and either open the door for them or slam it shut.
Throughout my career, I’ve held senior positions, mainly within Human Resources, for organizations ranging from 10 to 100,000 employees. I’ve worked with every strata of management from CEOs to young executives, which made me familiar with the typical challenges that professionals and companies face in their workplace. Having spent all those years observing and influencing people’s career paths, I’ve learned it’s better to craft the way others are going to perceive you, rather than to sit back and hope it’s going to be in a great way.
When I’m not working, I’m volunteering my time for the National Speakers Association where some of the Top Keynote Speakers learn, share and network. When I am not volunteering, I am spending time with my family exploring the extraordinary country of the United States, this amazing place I am lucky to call home. I have a multi-cultural background: Austrian by birth, French in my heart, Italian in my kitchen, German in my work ethic, and American by choice. I speak, I consult, I write and most important…
I package people. Yes. That’s what I do.
SYLVIE DI GIUSTO IS A KEYNOTE SPEAKER, CORPORATE IMAGE CONSULTANT, AUTHOR, AND MOM BASED IN THE VIBRANT CITY OF NEW YORK. SHE HAS BEEN SEEN ON…
People whom you meet make quick decisions about you or your company. Should they hire you? Vote for you? Buy something from you? Seven seconds. This is that brief moment in time when others first see you, or your employees, whether it’s at a meeting, on the job, or at an interview. Will others trust these snap judgments? I’d love to be the non-judgemental person to tell you that first impressions are not so important and easy to change. But science shows clearly that they’re really more important than you even think they are.
Research has found that first impressions are surprisingly valid and that these impressions are based on how we dress, act, speak, look, stand or walk. Afterward confirmation bias will either work for or against you. Because we have a natural tendency to hang on to anything that supports our initial point of view while ignoring any evidence to the contrary. Therefore, confirmation bias has a crucial influence on a person’s career, or an organization’s leadership, sales, communication, marketing, customer service quality.
The good news though is that this process and your image is entirely under your control. You can make it what you want. You can control the message you send to the people who see you and interact with you. It’s a combination of your dress, your attitude, your communication and how you present yourself on the internet.
You have 7 seconds. Let’s make them count!

IT’S NOT ABOUT BEING SOMEONE YOU’RE NOT.
IT’S ABOUT AFFECTING OTHERS
WITHOUT SAYING A WORD.
Appearance • Behavior • Comunication • Digital Footprint
“I have attended many conferences and without a doubt Sylvie ranks at the top for her public speaking and impressive presentation.
A positive first impression ultimately boosts the bottom line of any career or business. It’s what captures clients, fosters trust, and makes people want to do business with you. This is particularly true for organizations that interact with customers face-to-face. Otherwise, your existing or potential clientele may see you, your products or services, and your entire company in a negative light.
Sylvie shows your audience how the way they are perceived by others becomes the perceived value of your products and services, and what impact it has on their own career, a customer decision-making process, the outcome of a sales cycle, or the reputation of the organization. In her events, she reveals the components of a professional “imprint”, which is the sum total of four factors: appearance, behavior, communication, and digital footprint.
Sylvie takes your participants on a informative, interactive and fun journey that will reveal how others perceive them and thus perceive the value of their abilities and their employer’s reputation. She helps them to understand how people make up their minds very quickly about them, their leadership potential, their products or their organization, and either open the door for them or slam it shut.
Sylvie is the real deal…
Sylvie is the real deal. Her advice is helpful and on-point. I recommend her online course. And, if possible, get her to speak at your next conference— she is a knowledgeable, dynamic presenter.
She was engaging and funny and really made you think…
I had the opportunity to see Sylvie speak at the Meeting Industry Council of Colorado Education Conference in March. What a treat! She was engaging and funny and really made you think about how we judge others and how others judge each of us “in 7 seconds.” I thoroughly enjoyed the exercise she had us do with perfect strangers to see what they thought of us and I was able to secure a copy of her book The Image of Leadership…can’t wait to read it!
Sylvie brings the VALUE — Business Image Expertise, along with an elegant and engaging speaking style that lifts and enriches your event. Plus her online learning programs are absolutely leading edge! Highly recommended.
She’s a wonderful and engaging speaker and we heard nothing but RAVE reviews from attendees…
Our experience with Sylvie was very positive from our very first interaction (she practices what she preaches)! She took the time to ask really good questions to customize her content to meet the learning needs of our attendees. She used her own technology to engage the standing-room-only packed session and produced for us (after the event) a summary from data she collected which will help us design continuing education. She’s a wonderful and engaging speaker and we heard nothing but RAVE reviews from attendees who were able to get a seat in her 300-seat sold-out session! I would hire her again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her to other meeting organizers.
Sylvie is a true pro. She delivered exactly what I expected from her amazing session. I learned how to make the most of my first seven second. Powerful and engaging. If you’re not working with Sylvie, you’re missing out on how you and your organization can make the best and most lasting impression.
Attendees left the event with a clear understanding of why image matters and how to improve their “first impressions”…
Sylvie is one of the premier experts on people packaging, first impressions and professional image – for a reason. Not only does she LIVE her brand, but she delivered an amazing package of information, entertainment and “wow” at the 11th Annual Smart Hustle Small Business Conference. Attendees left the event with a clear understanding of why image matters and how to improve their “first impressions”. Sylvie, THANK YOU for sharing your expertise with hundreds of professionals in New York City and I look forward to working with you many, many more times!
Thanks again for your expertise and wonderful encouragement…
I just had to take a moment to to say ” thank you ” for being such a huge inspiration and motivation to all of us at the American Airlines advocate training last month. As we unveil the “new” smart and professional look at American Airlines next week, you gave us the tools, motivation and vision to share with the approximately 110,000 American Airlines employees worldwide. Thanks again for your expertise and wonderful encouragement. With your help, I am looking forward to making American airlines, not only the worlds largest airlines, but the best.
She’s a true professional, a joy to work with and a fascinating individual…
We were lucky enough to have Sylvie come talk to 600 of our team members about the importance of first impressions and how those first few moments can make or break the experience and ultimately the customers view of you and your products and/or services. Sylvie did an amazing job learning about our company, then she took that knowledge and created an excellent and interactive presentation that resonated with our people. The team is still talking about what Sylvie taught us and what happens in those first 7 seconds after meeting someone. She’s a true professional, a joy to work with and a fascinating individual.

Since attending, I have already received numerous compliments in the way I represent my airline and myself…
What a dynamic personality Sylvie is! I was fortunate to be at an American Airlines Image Advocate session where Sylvie spoke to us about “People Packaging”! What a brilliant concept! As consumers we all look at product packaging. Sylvie really opened my eyes about marketing ourselves (how we package ourselves) and the impact it has on our passengers, management and peers! Since attending, I have already received numerous compliments in the way I represent my airline and myself! Sylvie changed my thinking about EVERYTHING I do now! Amazing seminar! 10 stars to you Sylvie!
Sylvie is just what I needed to re-brand myself as our airline goes through this merger and is raising the bar with Image Branding. Sylvie is dynamic in presentation and really cuts to the core of what it takes to impress customers, management and even influence our cow-workers. Book her NOW! You will walk away so inspired and renewed!

When Sylvie talks, people listen…
When Sylvie walks into a room, she changes the ”temperature”. When Sylvie talks, people listen. When Sylvie writes, smart people read.
We had members from all of our sectors. Asia, Europe, and North America. Her examples were also global in reach. I think it really had something for everyone…
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Sylvie prior to the event. She was very thorough, her questionnaire that she gave us as clients made me feel like she really knew what she was doing. I was also very impressed by just the ability of her to be multimedia and whip out this awesome video that was specific for our company, including featuring some of our amazing products that we have here in her video. It was very well marketed, and we had over 500 people that wanted to participate. So, it was very overwhelming for us – the response. During the event, I was most pleased because it was a global event – we had members from all of our sectors: Asia, Europe, and North America, as well as people here in our headquarters in Holland, Michigan in chair. But we also had all those members from around the world who were participating via WebX. I was really pleased to see how interactive Sylvie made it with the polling features, and her examples were also global in reach. I think it really had something for everyone.
Learning & Development Manager | Haworth
Great content, put in a nutshell and easy to understand…
At her events Sylvie establishes a productive working atmosphere while using modern and varied techniques, great content, put in a nutshell and easy to understand. I absolutely recommend her without any reservations.
You have taught me something that will stick with me forever…
This was the BEST presentation we had during this meeting and that I have ever experienced. There was so much value in what you left with us. I think you have taught me something that will stick with me forever and that I will be able to share with others in and out of work.
Sylvie literally ‘brought down the house’! With energy, passion, personality, style and rock solid research, she had us all listening to every word with baited breath for each statement was a pearl of information dropped in the collective pool of our influence that I can already see the ripples of extension. She forced ME and every woman in the room to pause to closely introspect and write what exactly IS the impression we want the world to see when they make the 7 second impression she so dramatically taught us occurs every time we meet someone in a first encounter. THEN she set us loose on each other and had everyone take five minutes to STICK on the backs of our neighbors what impression they evoked! Wonderful interactive moment. I cannot possibly ENDORSE Sylvie enough and told the entire audience and anyone reading this to immediately read her book “The Image of Leadership” and even MORE importantly IF you have ANY possible option to have her speak at your organization or lead a workshop…BOOK HER ASAP before she becomes untouchable and inaccessible!
Ranks at the top for her public speaking and impressive presentation …
Sylvie absolutely changed my thought process on so many things. She is simply amazing. I have attended many conferences and without a doubt Sylvie ranks at the top for her public speaking and impressive presentation. I encourage everyone, not only read her book, but consider hiring her to help your business succeed!
Added huge value for those lucky enough to be in her audience…
Sylvie is an outstanding presenter and communicator. She was not only captivating, but she provided solid information that had the group riveted to her message. She delivered professionally, powerfully and added huge value for those lucky enough to be in her audience. If you have the chance to hear this wonderful presenter, do it! You will be better off because of it and your career will thank you for it.

Not only did I learn more in her presentation than I have learned in a VERY long time…
I was fortunate to be in one of Sylvie’s audiences recently. Not only did I learn more in her presentation than I have learned in a VERY long time, but the manner in which she offered her information was so impressive. Right from the start, you knew you were in competent hands and the entire audience could feel her warmth and caring from the moment she spoke her first word. Genuinely caring and authentic, Sylvie has a way of connecting with an audience that is rare and refreshing. And the information she shared was so valuable, I am already (2 days later) using it to make my business better! If you ever have an opportunity to hire Sylvie as a speaker for your organization, or to attend one of her sessions, you will be glad you took advantage to learn from a caring and extremely competent pro!
Sylvie was dynamic, infectious and energetic speaker. She connected with our audience as a group and generously shared advice with individuals following the event. Sylvie explained complex ideas succinctly and in entertaining ways, demonstrating her likable ability to translate thoughts into forms to which we could all relate. It is clear Sylvie is a continuous “student” of how people are perceived. She is a leader among leaders in empowering clients to make powerful changes that ultimately improve the impression or perception others have of them.
It felt doable because of the way she delivered it…
It was a privilege to hear Sylvie present in Tampa FL on Saturday. Her program was well designed, it kept our interest and she made the information very understandable. Although there was a vast amount of info that she delivered, I didn’t leave feeling overwhelmed. It felt doable because of the way she delivered it! As a bonus, Sylvie’s personality is warm, friendly and it’s easy to tell that she is in her business to serve her audiences. She was terrific.
Observable changes in demeanor and professional dress choices, which they attribute to Sylvie’s presentation…
Sylvie conducted training sessions for our client-facing professionals based on her book “The Image of Leadership” that was well-received. The senior managers of the participants have noted observable changes in demeanor and professional dress choices, which they attribute to Sylvie’s presentation. What distinguishes Sylvie as a professional trainer is the care and attention she devotes to her diagnostic and customization process, which includes a detailed questionnaire to ensure the relevance of her material to the outcomes we desired. She truly delivered on what she promised.
Grabbed the audience’s attention the moment she stepped out and didn’t let go…
Sylvie di Giusto is the real deal. A top notch speaker, Sylvie grabbed the audience’s attention the moment she stepped out and didn’t let go… Her delivery and stage presence radiated professionalism. Sylvie’s presentation was clear, mesmerizing, and deeply thought provoking. Would love to hear her again.
She exemplifies the characteristics that she teaches…
Sylvie was a pleasure to work with from the very start. She was responsive, well priced and accommodating to come into the office and meet with our team a few times. Her expertise in People Packaging and Image Consulting was clear from the moment we sat down with her. She exemplifies the characteristics that she teaches as well. The training itself was well organized and Sylvie immediately connected with the group. They viewed her as an expert and we will be using her teachings here at Nespresso to improve the overall image of the Brand Ambassadors here. I would definitely recommend Sylvie & People Packaging.
Members walked away with tools to apply right away…
My company was looking for an image consultant for our Aspiring Leader Program, and I came across Sylvie’s impressive website. From the moment I submitted a request, asking for more information about her services and rates, Sylvie has been a consummate professional and subject matter expert. She presented at our Aspiring Leader Program participants and also presented to all of our members globally. (It was an open session.) My team is small and is tight on time (who isn’t? ϑ), but Sylvie made the whole process so easy. To help with our communication effort to our organization, she provided a marketing video on the upcoming speaking event, and she provided a marketing kit. This was extremely helpful with sending out communications to our members and to prepare for her presentation. I greatly appreciated. Prior to the event, Sylvie asked us to complete a questionnaire, which we completed a few days before the event. I was very impressed by how quickly and effectively she absorbed and understood the information about our organization and the goals of our event. In preparing for the presentations, Sylvie was very flexible in understanding how our technology worked and how each location was set-up. And even when we experienced some technical difficulties from our end during the open session, Sylvie did not miss a beat.Overall, we received fantastic feedback from our members! The activities Sylvie incorporated in the presentation were impactful and fun. And members walked away with tools to apply right away. Sylvie was knowledgeable, relatable and very approachable – and that meant a great deal to our members. We are looking forward to working with her again in the future!

She went above and beyond what we expected of her. She is a gem…
Sylvie came and gave a program to 33 veterinary doctors from all over the US.They work along with sales reps in the veterinary pharma industry. Sylvie is AMAZING. She spent a lot of time with me and the other director beforehand so she could cater her message to what we were looking for – and then she nailed it.It just so happened that we were having headshots taken by a professional photographer that afternoon and Sylvie helped everyone with clothes, makeup,questions, etc. She even worked with the photographer before and after the shots were taken. She went above and beyond what we expected of her. She is a gem.

Participants that attended her workshop are still discussing what they learned and took away from her session…
Sylvie was such a pleasure to work with! Creative, thoughtful, professional, and thorough are just a few of the positive traits that come to mind when I think of her and her quality of work. She took the time to learn our business and company so that she could tailor her message to the audience – and she nailed it. Participants that attended her workshop are still discussing what they learned and took away from her session. Sylvie clearly left a lasting (positive) impression. I look forward to working with her in the future and if you are searching for an executive image consultant, Sylvie is the one!

She commands an audience and finds creative ways to engage and educate…
Sylvie is one of the most engaging and creative people with whom I have had the pleasure to work. She commands an audience and finds creative ways to engage and educate. Her experience and confidence are infectious and our conference attendees who were fortunate enough to hear her speak, left revitalized, informed and motivated. It was an honor to work with Sylvie and to read her recent book. What a wonderful talent and addition to any event or company!
The amount of positive feedback I received after the presentation was incredible…
I found Sylvie and Executive Image Consulting through a Google search when looking for someone to come and present on the importance of image at the workplace. I am so glad to have found her. Sylvie is highly knowledgeable in her area of expertise, personable, and engaging. The amount of positive feedback I received after the presentation was incredible! To top it off, Sylvie was flexible with our scheduling demands which made it all the more pleasant to work with her. If you are looking for advice or consultation in the area of image and leadership, I highly encourage you to consider Sylvie.
Depending on the size of the audience and the required content Sylvie offers her program in different formats. From 60-minute keynotes to four-hour workshops, from online webinars to hybrid learning solutions. The program targets female and male leaders, from entry-level employees to C-Suite–level executives, usually in customer-facing roles or on the path to become the leaders they deserve to be. Sylvie has delivered her programs for companies and conferences within a variety of industries, such as advertising, architecture, associations, automotive, banking, consulting, consumer products, education, entertainment, financial services, food, health care, insurance, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, retail, real estate, technology, tourism, and many more.
SYLVIE DI GIUSTO IS A SPEAKER, IMAGE CONSULTANT, AUTHOR, AND MOM BASED IN THE VIBRANT CITY OF NEW YORK. SHE INFLUENCED AUDIENCES AT…
I understand the challenge
of finding just the right speaker
Dear Event Planner,
I have been “one of you” for 20 years. I understand the corporate and meeting world like few other speakers. In my prior role as the Head of an International Management Academy, I was responsible for hundreds of events, from small corporate sessions to large conferences. I found myself spending days researching for the perfect speaker. Today, I am in the very privileged position that I know both worlds.
I understand, that your professional reputation rests on the keynote speaker you select for your upcoming event. I will do whatever is necessary to make sure you and your organization receive outstanding feedback. I understand that the focus of your upcoming event is not on me, it’s not on you. It’s on them, the attendees. I promise you to make this a memorable and unique experience for them. Last but not least, I want you to know that I am not a “diva” to work with. Others might wonder what I mean by that.
But for you and me, there is no further explanation necessary. I only have a few requirements in order to make my and your life less stressful and more efficient. I don’t think that I state anything revolutionary below. However, I also know that it helps to understand what we can expect from each other. Thank you for considering me to be the keynote speaker for your next event.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM ME…
I have already reached thousands of participants around the world and planted the seed of professional presence for themselves and their organization. I connect with a wide range of audiences of varying cultures and ages, because I have the ability to address everyone – from the doorman to the CEO.
I create a memorable experience in a way that is fun, interactive, engaging and informative. I do the unexpected within my events, and your audience will remember the lessons I share. Your participants will listen, talk, discuss, practice, move, vote, interact and most important laugh with me during the presentation.
I develop my own materials that always relate to current events and people in the public eye. My fresh ideas include illustrations, images, photos, videos and interactive exercises. I do not use canned presentations, because each industry, each company, each job level, each audience has its own challenges and needs a different approach.
You’ll be working with one of the most innovative presenters within this industry. I use modern presentations techniques that include video integration, live polling, social media communication, e-Learning. I deliver a level of excellence that most of my clients could not imagine was possible. Good is never good enough for me.
Copies of my book will be offered for a preferred customer price. Participants will receive all slides and handouts as printer-ready PDF files via e-mail, in addition to a free e-book, video series, mobile app and practical tips and tricks. To promote your event I’ll produce a customized video just for you. Examples can be seen here.
I am not a wardrobe consultant or fashion stylist. Don’t expect me to drape color capes or call out body shapes. While appearance is an important part, it’s only one aspect. Also, if you’re looking for a keynote speaker who will stand behind a podium and lecture about image theories, you’re checking out the wrong speaker.
Round trip Business Class ticket (Delta Airlines preferred), from my home airport (JFK, EWR, LGA) to the venue’s airport. If not from my home airport, airfare will be pro-rated for multiple clients. Within New York City and at the event location I will use UBER, cabs, ZipCar or rental cars (Hertz preferred) for ground transportation. Travel inclusive options are available for interested clients.
Organized and booked by the event host, preferably as close as possible to the event location. Please book a quiet, non-smoking room, if necessary late arrival guaranteed or late check-out approved. I need to check-in the day prior to the event in order to meet you, your team, prepare the room and perform a tech and sound check. I will leave the morning after the event. If not organized by the event host, Marriot preferred.
You will receive a speaking agreement. After we both sign and return it I’m asking for a 50% deposit to hold the date. The remaining 50% and expenses will be due 30 days from invoice date. Payment accepted via bank transfer, check, credit card or PayPal. For international travel, I will ask for a deposit to cover expenses in advance. Travel inclusive options are available for interested clients.
I will bring my own presentation device, which is an Apple MacBook Air, and I am prepared to connect my Macbook via VGA or HDMI. I can NOT use any other device to present. Access to the Internet is important for me since participants will interact with me via their phones. They need regular mobile reception only. Screen and projector should be large and high enough to allow visibility to all participants because I use a lot of visuals during my presentation.
I prefer a wireless lavalier microphone (please no hand microphones or lectern.) I will show videos during my presentation and therefore a sound system and speakers in the room are required, as well as an audio-out line from my MacBook. Video/Audio recording is encouraged and requires advance written authorization for a copy of the video after the event. Full house light for the room is recommended.
I’ll send you a comprehensive pre-program questionnaire. The purpose of this questionnaire is not to create additional work for you but to significantly increase the value of the program for your participants. I really appreciate the time you and your team will invest in this questionnaire in order to make this a fantastic program for you, your audience and myself.
I have helped hundreds of clients, just like you, to better manage their image. I work with women and men from many different cultures, backgrounds and professions. My clients include female and male executives, from young professionals to C-Suite level, politicians, entrepreneurs, or people just starting their careers. If you’d like to work with me, I invite you to take a close look at the two different packages I offer. Choose the perfect one for yourself based on your individual needs, your available time, your location and your financial limits.
Keep in mind: There are many different types of investments you can make. The best is still to invest in yourself.
DO IT YOURSELF
Are you a busy professional who has no time for a personal consultation? Do you live in Europe, Asia, the Middle East or Africa? Or do you live somewhere in the U.S. and are unable to travel to New York? We all are busy, and I understand you have to prioritize. Therefore I provide you with an informative and interactive way to work on your image transformation in the comfort of your own home or office.
Do you value the professional opinion of an expert and are ready to make it really happen? Do you want to set yourself apart from all the other people at work, because climbing the corporate ladder, or running for an office is clearly on your mind? Let me and my team worry about the finer details of your professional image, and we’ll meet you in New York to lead you through your personal makeover session.

Not only can you help them define a personal style that is hassle-free and truly them, you can change their entire outlook regarding how they feel about their body and themselves. Who doesn’t want that?
Help corporations to step ahead of their competition.
Many professionals and corporations seek the services of specifically trained image consultants to enhance their own or their employees professional image. Expanding your business into the corporate niche market means that you can work with high-profile clientele, ranging from CEO’s, senior executives, emerging leaders, to job beginners.
Help your clients build a powerful personal brand.
Not only are individuals seeking personal branding advice for themselves, companies are implementing personal branding programs for their employees. The idea of impression management and self-presentation are becoming more and more important with the rise of social media and an ever-evolving online world. Help create a brand that’s strategic and memorable.
Fashion and styling has always been the domain of womenswear, while menswear has long been one of the neglected and more conservative areas. But for several years now, the growth of the men’s fashion market has outpaced that of womenswear. On the back of this increasing demand, brands and designers constantly expand their menswear lines.
