You’re talented, smart, and ambitious. You’ve got skills, education, and professional experience. You know your value and you’ve mastered your domain.
But, is that the person that other people see?
Let’s keep it real. Whether you like it or not, people judge you based on how you look. That’s were I come in.
Maybe you want to look more sophisticated and refined.
Maybe you want to make a better first impression or be that person that everyone notices when they walk into a room.
Or, maybe you want to create a personal brand through your clothing and presence that commands respect and attracts opportunities.
Whatever the case is, I’m here to help you improve your image.
Hello! My name is David McKnight.
I've mastered the unique combination of being an image consultant and executive coach. I enjoy not only helping ambitious professionals transform their professional presence and personal brand, but also skyrocketing their performance, effectiveness and productivity in the workplace.
Clients who've worked with me have:
elevated their executive presence
received promotions at an accelerated pace
increased their salaries
transitioned to leadership roles at new organizations
experienced explosive growth in their businesses
With two decades of experience as a management consultant and financial services executive, I have led large complex engagements within the Health Insurance sector, and I've held two Global Head roles that were responsible for leading enterprise wide initiatives that resulted in seismic business process change and cultural shifts.
In my free time I enjoy traveling, reading books on style and business, and drinking bold red wines.
