Who this Opportunity is NOT For?

ICBI’s offering of Business Programs in Image Consulting and/or Soft Skills Training to become certified Image Consultant and/or Soft Skills Trainer is not for people who:

Believe that Image Management and Soft Skills are life skills and one does not need formal education and certification to train others on it. The “Know it All” types.

Want to invest in an opportunity that is ‘Down to a Price’ and not ‘Up to a Value!

Believe that the Institution that certifies them will also find them Clients, and if not, Destiny Will!

Don’t want to get out of their comfort zone, even if that is not the happiest place!

Who always need supervision and motivation by others and are not self-starters and go getters.

Suffer from self-doubt and belief that they cannot make their own dreams a reality because they are meant to live other’s agendas.

Program Fees

“When I decided to switch careers and go into training as a profession, I joined the course offered by ICBI. In fact, I recovered almost my entire course fees from my very first assignment itself.”

Diana Swing
