TRIBUNE PHOTO ‘Discover the brand in you, shun stereotypes’ Neha Saini Tribune News Service Amritsar, June 2 If one of the top image consultants in the country tells you that the key to finding a new you involves three words — stereotypes, first impression and perception, one is bound to get a bit confused. Bhuvaneshwari Sawant and Sonal Gadhvi clear all doubts and explain the connection. The cofounders and consultants of Nyou, an image consulting firm based in Mumbai, the two entrepreneurs were in the city to conduct a workshop for FICCI FLO. “Generally, we see people according to the stereotypes that have been either fed or developed over the years in our mind. Our first impression of someone immediately processes our brain to put the person in a box and that’s how it seems to be for everyone. How we perceive the world is our understanding of it but seldom do we think on the fact that how the world perceives us. The key is to treat yourself as a brand and put your best traits forward to make the world perceive as improvised versions of yourselves,” says Sonal Gadhvi. Of course, she says FICCI FLO members at a workshop in Amritsar.

We tell them to love themselves the way they are. If you have to add something to your personality, it should be something productive, something functional and not because someone else has a problem with it,” says Sawant. Gowri Bansal, chairperson, FICCI FLO, said the workshop aimed at conditioning the women entrepreneurs in city for competitive world and re-inventing oneself.
