Meet Our Founder
Michelle T. Sterling
Hi, I’m Michelle Sterling. I founded Global Image Group in 2002 after starting my professional career as an M&A investment banker out of college. Always struggling to fit in and be recognized in my youth, it wasn’t until I turned 16 that I realized the real power of clothing. It wasn’t until I went to Wellesley College and socialized with the international scene that I develop my own authentic style. And it wasn’t until I became an investment banker that I developed confidence, competence, and credibility by learning how to manage perception, dress, and communicate to project professional presence.
Today I’m a multiple award-winning, internationally recognized train-the-trainer, executive image consultant, personal stylist, and personal shopper. Certified in appearance, behavior, and communication as an image coach and leadership trainer, I can help you develop your personal brand identity through image, etiquette, communication, and professional presence to level up your authority and credibility, self-confidence, and self-competence, to be recognized as a leader -- strategically transforming your self-image and life from the inside out.
As Chief Executive Image Consultant and Virtual Stylist of Global Image Group, executive men and women from tech to finance, as well as ambitious entrepreneurs and work-from-home professionals engage my personal stylist services due to my client-focused, results-driven, systematic approach to consulting and wardrobing. Recently mentioned in the Huffington Post and Wall Street Journal for my next-level wardrobe capsule approach to styling professionals, you can shop the looks when you press READ MORE.
I serve clients on-location in New York, DC, San Francisco, Miami/Fort Lauderdale, London, Paris, and Dubai, as well as worldwide virtually styling and leadership coaching online.
