Up Your Value!

Up Your Value! is a ground-breaking book that stresses on the importance of combining good grooming and good behaviour. Written by Wendy Lee and Wendy Liew of Chapter One Brand Image Institute, who are both successful entrepreneurs and leading image consultants in Asia, Up Your Value! ensures that the Language of Clothes and the Language of Behaviour will soon be your image’s lingua franca.

The book addresses your image – how often do your wardrobe choices reflect what you think flatters your looks as opposed to what you want people to see when they look at you? After training more than 50,000 corporate individuals in the areas of impression management, Lee has noticed this key mistake when it comes to image-building – many people do not seem to know how to make a conscious image-enhancing choice.

Up Your Value! aims to fill the gap for anyone aiming to achieve their desired image through proven techniques. The book transcends all shapes, sizes, and style senses and is applicable to everyone, regardless of age, gender and profession. This book contains 7 chapters – Approachability, Professionalism, Attractiveness, Being Dramatic, Authoritativeness, Elegance and Happiness – each designed to help you “Up Your Value” via behaviour as well as looks.

This book also features quizzes designed to test what you have learnt and help you put into practice all the tips presented in the book. There will also be an Education Corner, to give readers some fun facts about things they have never thought of before.

Up Your Value! will be available in most major bookstores this month. The book can also be purchased online at www.chap-one.com and shipped to you, or you may choose to pick the book up from Chapter One BrandImage Institute.
