A2. A Style Experience. Why your Image Matters.

How you dress makes a statement about who you are and the organization you represent to existing and potential clients and/or donors. It’s imperative that you dress appropriately and make a strong first impression. Whether you are going in front of a board of directors to ask for money, giving a presentation, attending fundraising events or traveling overseas, knowing that you are well dressed for the situation increases your self-confidence, helps you make the right impression and contributes to the success of your NGO.
