Your personal appearance is crucial for your success in presentations and conversations, in your daily professional life or in job hunting processes. Thus, it contributes to your career development in a critical way. Besides the quality of the content, the key factors are the following: Am I able to create a positive atmosphere for me and my audience? Can I deal confidently with stress situations?
