Ginny's expertise was clear from the moment we sat down. Her philosophy of moving from the anxious guest to the
'Welcoming Host' is central to her message. Her advice was very actionable by our people. They could quickly comprehend and execute on her valuable instruction. I am certain our staff at Deloitte will be more effective in reaching business contacts and nurturing vital relationships.

It definitely exceeded my expectations.

Trusted friend and mentor. Was recognized for his many contributions to society before passing away October 16, 2019.
I feel like a million-bucks in my new clothes and with an image I wanted to portray. Every woman should empower herself to experience that.

The one-on-one image coaching sets you at ease to be comfortable in creating the image you know you want, but somehow can’t quite pull together on your own. Ginny Baldridge is gracious and ingenious in building your confidence to new levels of style.

“I had two key observations during Ginny’s presentation. First, she is a delightful, engaging speaker who visually embodies her message. It is evident by her well-groomed appearance and confident speaking skills that she believes in herself and is committed to helping others achieve the same. She brought instant credibility and connection to her audience with her ability to share difficult moments with grace and courage.”

The YEI 2 Day Seminar gave me guidance during my transition as a leader of a big team.The aspects of leading a meeting, presentation skills and body language were outstanding. I am very appreciative of my experience and plan to send my administrative team to the next training.

I wanted to thank you for your ‘Introduction to Executive Presence’ presentation. I received very positive feedback from our global marketing attendees and they expressed that they particularly appreciated your comments on acting as the host when networking, aspects of body language, and professional appearance. Great job!
Susan Carrillo MIB, FLMIVice President, RGA Global Marketing
I LOVED this session, even though none of us realize we become complacent in certain areas as we go through our day-to-day routine. Ginny's talk reminded me of how our clients hold us to high esteem and I should remember to always help my colleagues in our office - from my appearance to the office's appearance and that I am representing our non-profit. This is the best professional etiquette program I have ever attended!
Amy Caster, Gates Foundation St. Petersburg, FL
I have worked with Ginny for almost a year and have discovered that she has the ability to help individuals embrace their uniqueness, their talents, and inspire them to reach for their goals. She has given me the skills and the confidence to begin a job search, complete and send my resumes to firms that I would previously would not have considered. She has taken the steps to help me improve my overall appearance and demeanor. She is readily available to answer any questions and offer positive suggestions. I have attended seminars she has offered and she is extremely insightful, practical and entertaining.

Recently I had the pleasure of working with Ginny Baldridge, Your Executive lmage, LLC. to help transition into my new role as President of Kent Precision Foods Group, lnc. We all know “the details matter". However, up to this point in my career I applied all my energy into making sure I got the details right for the customer. I never thought of myself as one of the details. After a few coaching sessions, I realized I was a very important detail for the customers and now for the employees. My executive presence set the tone, provided reassurance and confidence to all individuals around me. Ginny assisted me with one-on one coaching. She is truly remarkable in her professionalism, knowledge of her subject and her passion and energy she displays in her work. I have no hesitation in recommending her for any assignment she is considered for.

The Executive Presence program was fun and took direct aim at a problem that is facing every company hiring young executives. There is an entire generation of young lawyers, and incredibly sharp professionals, that aren’t dressing appropriately and aren’t behaving in a refined manner. Typically this is because they simply don’t understand the criterion they are being judged by. Even if you’re a master at something, you can always learn more. I emphatically recommend ‘The Executive Presence Program’ at Your Executive Image, LLC.”
Kathleen BilderbackPartner, Affinity Law Group, St. Louis
What a fantastic class! This is the refrain that I heard over and over from all the attendees. You have greatly impressed all who met you and were privileged to interact with you.Thank you, again, for your generosity and leadership. It made a difference for me. I not only will be using what I learned, I will be sharing it with others.
Linda Levy Katz
Thanks for your presentation to the Women of Con Edison on The Power of Image. The 150+ women who attended agreed that the information was useful, relevant to their career development, and well received. They found your presentation fun and engaging as well!
Thanks, again, and have a great week!
Michelle SuttonCon Edison, Long Island City, NY
Ginny was a fantastic presenter and offered us practical changes we can make in our everyday process that make an impact on our Executive Presence. I went into this session thinking it would be "common sense" but I quickly discovered that I absolutely needed a refresher course in communication etiquette. This session should be required for every new Financial Advisor!
