The Powerful Impressions Top 24 Workshop

On Sunday the 24th of March 2013, the Powerful Impressions Workshop kicked off with a bang, with the Top 24 Miss Universe contestants receiving the first instalment of the accredited Powerful Impressions program. Throughout the day, the contestants were coached by leading industry professionals in the fields of image consulting, health wellbeing and grooming. Time was spent with each coach focusing on developing the contestants personal brand and preparing them for WA’s State Final. Building confidence and charisma were major themes throughout the workshop as the contestants completed modules on relationship building, wardrobe communication, makeup and grooming, building resilience and developing confidence through health and wellbeing.

The exclusive Top 24 Workshop draws modules from the Powerful Impressions three-part program, a program developed by the EGAMI INSTITUTE which is currently integrated within the curriculum of private schools and major universities throughout Australia. The six-hour intensive workshop left the contestants motivated and inspired, taking away important tips for the competition and their career.

Previous Miss Universe contestants who have completed some of the modules of the Powerful Impressions program include Renae Ayris and Sherri Lee-Biggs.
