"When I decided to pursue image management as a career, I wanted to be trained by the best. After researching carefully, I chose The Conselle Institute of Image Management and Judith Rasband. As a Certified Image Master, Judith is immensely knowledgeable and highly regarded. Her two week intensive training course thoroughly instructed and prepared me to launch my business, and as a Conselle affiliate, I have been able to use the highest quality teaching aids that Judith has developed during her career with my own clients. Because Judith takes a personal interest in her students, I have been able to call or email her with a number of questions that have come up over the months and years as I've established my business. For anyone who wants to get started in the image management business, I highly and without reservation recommend Judith Rasband and The Conselle Institute of Image Management."

"The Conselle Educational Training in Image Management was great and more than I expected. I must admit that initially I was feeling somewhat apprehensive and tentative about the course. I didn't know what to expect or what I had gotten myself into. Judith quickly dispelled any worries I had! I want to say that attending Conselle training was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I only wish I'd done so earlier. The training was great value for my dollar and, in retrospect, I would have gladly paid more for what I received. Judith's passion for the subject is contagious and inspires those of us who attend her training to reach for our goals and take our dreams farther. Thanks again for providing the education and materials necessary to be a success as an Image Consultant."
