Virtual Services & Webinars
COVID has changed our lives in many ways and it has certainly challenged our ability to adapt. As a result, I have had to reinvent my business since I can no longer meet my clients face-to-face. I am excited to announce that I will be able to conduct my services digitally. The desire to look and present your best has not changed, and it is actually more important than ever. When first impressions are made in 10 seconds or less, it is vital to know how to present yourself in the best and most effective way possible. Maintaining professionalism virtually may be uncomfortable or new but it is very important to stay in control of how you look since appearance is crucial to success. Although we are not able to meet in person, I will be able to perform my assessments and professional services virtually.
Have you ever wondered how people always look ‘put together’? Although following trends may be easy, they are not the best plan since they are short-lived. In fact, it is much more essential to have a unique style that fits and represents you. Indeed, everyone is capable of presenting their very best self, although some may need guidance and support.
I will provide you with an overall assessment of your hair, makeup, colouring and body shape. After the assessment, I will suggest the best types of clothing to suit your lifestyle, profession and aspirations. We will also analyze and create lasting professional goals that will correspond with your new and approved image.
Be sure to prepare questions prior to your assessment as I will be able to provide feedback that will give you motivation and confidence to be able to create your new, yet natural look.

With the onset of COVID, we have had to totally adjust how we operate our work environment and how we communicate with clients. You may have recently lost your job or you may have just graduated. You may be a seasoned professional, or work from home and are still expected to perform your business activities virtually. If you can relate to any of these positions or one similar to them, this is your moment to seize the opportunity to emerge from the crowd and present the best version of your professional self. Most people like you are still trying to comprehend this ‘new normal’ of operating life digitally. With my support, you will be able to succeed in these demanding times by feeling, looking and presenting your best self.
After analyzing your situation and understanding your specific needs, I will assist you with how to implement the professional look you need to prosper. The all-important ABC’s (Appearance, Behaviour and Communication) will be addressed to ensure your overall presence represents your branding.
Since business communication will be conducted virtually, I will also provide you with essential tools to perfect your digital presence.

Did you know that most of us wear 20% of what is in our closet? This research is not surprising because most of my clients that I have worked with experienced the same frustrating results. Many people have closets that are filled with clothes that are never worn. We shop for clothes for a number of reasons: a ‘pick me up’, the attractive lure of a sale, or you must have the look that is on a mannequin.
Over time, your clothes pile up and you end up having too many clothes in your closet that are forgotten. As a result, you never get to see the wonderful pieces you could and should be wearing. Coordinating with what you already own will not only clean out your overflowing closet but it will refine your image and establish how to demonstrate your identity successfully.
I will assess your natural look, body type and lifestyle so that together we will streamline your wardrobe. We will organize your clothing and accessories into groups:
I will show you how to mix and match your remaining special pieces and how to use your accessories to create beautiful outfits. You will feel more organized and empowered after this fundamental wardrobe cleansing.
$120 an hour + HST - minimum 1.5 hours.
Colour is more complex than we think — different colours invoke a different psychological response. A muted colour can often make one invisible, while the same individual wearing a stronger colour will command attention in a room.
The Colour Analysis will enable you to leverage your best colours by determining the following:
1: Which colour category compliments your look and skin colour the best.
2: How to use and wear the colours strategically within your seasonal palette. The colours an executive would wear would be quite different than the colours worn by an elementary school teacher.
The Colour Analysis only has to be done once in a lifetime because your complexion is genetic and will stay the same, and so will the optimal colours that compliment you best!
You’ll shop with greater confidence and efficiency, saving time and money.
Zoom backgrounds will be emailed to you to be downloaded for your virtual Colour Analysis. Please wear a white top, remove makeup, jewelry, coloured contact lenses, and if your hair is coloured, please cover it with something white such as a towel, pillowcase or shirt.

I had a huge amount of black clothes in my wardrobe and never realized how washed out they made me look until I stopped wearing them. I also thought I could wear more or less any colour, and I didn’t give much thought to emphasizing what looked BEST. Lynda really taught me to be more discriminating, choosing colours that made me come alive.Patricia H.Psychologist
Madison had a wonderful time with you in your Manners Matter course. It was nice to see her so enthusiastic to teach me some new things. I noticed her posture was better that first day :) She was proud to teach her younger brother as well. We will definitely like to take that class again.S. CoomerParent
Lynda's professional etiquette seminar is a must for any business wishing to ensure that its representatives know how to behave appropriately in the corporate world. My front line employees usually make the first impression of my firm on potential clients and professional colleagues; therefore I consider it essential that they are polished and confident in every situation.
Lynda presents this difficult topic in an easy and approachable way, making people feel comfortable to ask questions without awkwardness.This seminar brings real practical results. Now I feel confident that my employees have the skills they need to represent my firm in the most professional way possible. In addition, my staff now feel much more comfortable in both business and social situations.Chantal Desloges, LL.B., C.S.Barrister & Solicitor | Law Firm Principal
Even after having spent only a few hours with you, I still keep your advice in mind when dressing for work or shopping for new clothes. It helps a lot in simplifying the process for me and making it more enjoyable (or at least much less painful) than it otherwise would be. It's especially important for me to maintain an image of professionalism and respect and I've found that the simple tips you've given me allow me to achieve this easily and inexpensively.Lee G.Business Consultant
When Lynda went through my wardrobe with me, her eye for what worked and what didn't work helped me tremendously. What remained became the 'bones' of my wardrobe and I felt as if a huge depressing burden had been lifted from my shoulders. It's like losing weight. It is so much easier now to make smarter fashion decisions. Now I get compliments on what I'm wearing.Helen W.Senior Designer
Our organization, like many others, faced a challenge with our younger staff: how to define for them what proper business attire means in today's workplace. We turned to Lynda Jean and are delighted we did so.
Lynda, through a "Lunch 'N Learn" session, brought down to earth, practical advice to our staff in a way that was informative without being condescending or crossing any human resources boundaries.
I am pleased to be able to say that we had very positive feedback from our staff on Lynda's presentation and, equally importantly, we have noticed a definite improvement in our staff's attire.Michelle CapiobancoManager, New Business Development
We operate a first-class service to our High Net Worth clients and, consequently, it is critical that all of our various staff members are well trained in proper etiquette.
Lynda Jean’s four-hour tutorial was a very helpful way to teach our team proper dining skills, courtesies and workplace dress and behavior. Lynda Jean presents an informative, pleasant and very useful set of skills that we all enjoyed and learned from.
I highly recommend her tutorial as both introductory training and on-going refresher courses for everyone from new employees to Senior Executives. Her course includes both an e-book and reference guide as excellent take-aways.Joanne Dereta, MBA, CFP, RFP, CIM, TEPManaging Director & Principal

Lynda Jean's recent Professional Etiquette Presentation to law students at William S. Boyd School of Law, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, was invaluable and very appropriate for our students preparing to work in the field of law. Legal profession employers seek graduates who not only possess strong legal skills but are also able to demonstrate professional presence. Lynda's presentation provided the necessary building blocks for our current students and recent graduates to understand the process of becoming a successful lawyer.Rachael Reese Adair, Esq.Director of Career Development & Judicial Clerkship Advisor
