I’m proud to say we have so many international delegates that come to our academy. From the US to South America to India, Dubai and of course our neighbouring European countries, we’ve welcomed and trained them all.
They come to London primarily because their country of residence simply doesn’t offer all of the training modules that we cover here at Style ME Training at an affordable price. Imagine the frustration they’ve finally realisedW they want to become a Personal Stylist but simply can’t find any nearby Academies to train them.
Instead of giving up, they take the first step to actually achieving their dream and that is ‘Googleing’ international training academies. For some reason London always seems to excite them and why wouldn’t it? It’s a safe country, it’s English speaking and let’s not forget the obvious; London is the fashion capital of the world. Why wouldn’t they want to train here?
So now they’ve decided on London, it’s all about finding the right academy for them and the feedback I receive is always something along the line of: “your academy offered everything I could possibly want to learn about personal styling from women’s wear, to mens styling to colour analysis all within one week, at an affordable price and you offered ongoing mentoring once I returned back to my home country”.
When we set up the Intensive Training course we never realised how many international delegates it would attract. I’m really proud of all the international women I’ve had the pleasure to train not only for making a success of their businesses but for their determination to learn this skillset. It’s not easy being away from home, away from their families and finding the additional funds for flights and accommodation. Maybe it’s because they have put so much on the line by making this journey that they are even more committed once they go home to be a success, as they now have the added pressure from friends and family who are all too aware of the new career their embarking on.
The week with me is intense but unlike so many other companies out there it’s personable. At the end of the week we do a one on one business planning session, this to me is really is our point of difference. Personal styling requirements and opportunities vary from town to town and even more so from country to country, therefore when I hone in on the potential for that delegate I offer a new perspective that they may not have yet visualized on how their business should be run and with the ongoing mentoring I’m available to guide them every step of the way be it via Skype or What’sApp.
Let’s not forget this delegate will now be added to our database of delegates around the world so if for I have for example a Portuguese personal styling client here in London, I would put her in touch with my Style ME stylist based in Portugal for any additional styling help she may need in Portugal, so there’s always new business to be won and no one is ever disappointed with that J
Please do get in touch if you are abroad, wanting to train here in London.
