Here’s what Inside Out Image clients have to say

Inside Out Image helps companies and individuals achieve their goals and perform at their best by developing often untaught skills.

I met Joanna as I was pivoting in my career at a senior level and I needed guidance on building my brand, improving my networking skills, demonstrating gravitas and having impact at C level. Joanna had practical advice that made an immediate difference. She’s a very positive, kind and attentive listener who is able to successfully walk you through each step of the challenging moments of your career with a smile.

Having had the pleasure to see Joanna in action delivering a session to our newly qualified associates the other week, I can highly recommend her to other firms looking to run training on professional impact.

— Head of Learning & Development, Forsters LLP

We asked Joanna to help us develop a programme for employees who had expressed a desire to develop their Personal Impact and Networking capabilities. Working collaboratively with us, Joanna developed and delivered an interactive, lively and ultimately very well received set of workshops.

The feedback from the delegates was excellent and has prompted us to look at our next set of development needs. Thank you Joanna, you are such a pleasure to work with.

— Mark, Regional Director London, South and West, Allied Irish Bank

I had received my promotion to team head. I was in a tough spot, trying to navigate my way through some difficult political situations and what felt like a very toxic environment.

Joanna got straight to the point and started to help me unpick where the issues were, the direct conversations I needed to have, and getting me to see things from a different perspective. I can honestly say that 7 sessions later, I am a different person with highly improved political intelligence.

— Director, Head of European Infrastructure

I wanted to change the behaviours and improve the performance of our finance team. Joanna took the time to understand the situation and designed an ‘away day’ for the team aimed at initiating that change. She delivered a well thought out programme, leading us through the process of clarifying our goals, identifying gaps and putting together a plan to deliver improvement. Joanna was open and engaging throughout and the team left feeling energised and enthused.

Joanna has offered excellent support and advice in a clear and positive manner. We’ve worked through areas I was finding difficulty with, such as body language and relationship building in interview and networking situations. I now feel confident to keep developing my personal and business goals using a detailed action plan. Joanna has been wonderful to work with.

— Business Owner

I approached Joanna at a very stagnant and discouraging point in my career. Joanna quickly identified the areas that needed work in just in an initial session. Joanna helped me identify my personal brand, work on strategic relationships, network effectively and become more politically intelligent.

Over the last few months, I faced several challenging and changing circumstances, Joanna was available at the end of a phone call to give me direction whilst reassuring me. I always looked forward to my sessions with Joanna. She showed empathy and gave me the right feedback in the most gentle manner.

The session Joanna ran for us was very well received. She was highly engaging and her talk was insightful with plenty of helpful tips to take away. The audience also appreciated the interaction through polls and the opportunity to ask questions. We would highly recommend Joanna for her talk on 'Navigating Organisational Politics Positively'.

Joanna was excellent - succinct, covered the key issues well and is one of the best presenters I have heard. Really well-paced and was interactive throughout with the Q&A facility.

I began working with Joanna at a crossroads in my career - I knew I wanted to make a major change and was looking for guidance to develop and execute a plan for how to achieve this. Joanna helped me to map out the options and feel confident in those that I opted to pursue.

We asked Joanna to help our 'pitch' team develop their presenting skills within a bid environment.

She delivered several workshops including 'The Importance of Personal Impact', 'Rapport Building' & 'Core Presenting Skills' and helped our team to build confidence for presentations, pitches and general internal and external meetings.

Joanna grasped our requirements and delivered a clear and simple programme for all levels across our business. I really enjoyed working with Joanna and highly recommend her.

Joanna adds a unique twist to professional development.

I loved working with her as she encouraged me to think carefully about my strengths and motivations and helped me articulate them. It gave me a real confidence boost that led to me springing into action and considering options which I had not previously explored.

I now also have a fully up-to-date CV and LinkedIn profile which truly reflect what I am about as a professional. Thank you, Joanna!

— Global Strategic Sourcing Director

When I was having trouble getting my application documents up to scratch, a friend suggested I contact Joanna, which turned out to be a great recommendation.

Joanna helped me look at my professional experience, who I am as a person and what I want from my next role. She showed me how to proactively find a good job match, and was an excellent guide and support.

— Digital Marketer, Pharmaceutical Industry

Joanna's work has had considerable impact. Of particular benefit to me was the Political Savvy questionnaire where we discussed my responses and how best I might respond to challenging situations in future.

The interview training greatly improved my confidence and self-management skills. I progressed from not getting interviews at all to securing first and second interviews with increasing frequency and I have since accepted a job offer for an improved salary and benefits. I wish I had met Joanna 20 years ago!

After being struck by Joanna’s authentic and innovative expertise on personal impact, I invited her to be a speaker at the end of year Women into Leadership event.

Joanna is very perceptive and tailored her style of working to my needs, using her experience to guide me while retaining a clear focus on my stated objectives.

She gave very specific guidance on developing a CV and LinkedIn profile, and helping me to refine my interview technique. She also acted as a sounding board throughout my job search and was a great support in interpreting feedback and planning out next steps.

— Vice President, Investment Industry

The session was fantastic - an engaging mix of slides and very thought provoking, with some good direct suggestions. Joanna clearly articulated the risks and opportunities of hybrid working in a non-biased way and giving food for thought in a clear and open way.
