It was terrific listening to you at the etiquette dinner today!
Peggy customized training for our organization that fit perfectly with the messages we were trying to convey to our employees. She is a dynamic speaker that uses personal stories to help educate and entertain her audience. I would be pleased to work with Peggy again!
~Jennifer Caraballo, Senior Director of Human Resources at Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta, Inc.
Peggy prepared and delivered an impactful presentation to a women’s professional organization for which I sit on the board, addressing topics such as business and tech etiquette, professional appearance and impressions, and strategies for working a room to win business. Peggy exudes confidence in her delivery, peppered with humor, and was well received by the group. Her direct approach was effective, and everyone left the presentation more comfortable in one aspect or another of business etiquette and professionalism. I endorse Peggy without reservation and would welcome the opportunity to work with and learn from her again.
~Madeleine Kvalheim, Associate, Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, P.C
Peggy was kind enough to take time to speak at the November 2014 Technology Association of Georgia Young Professional event on Business Etiquette. Peggy was very interactive with the crowd and provided great insight into various business etiquette topics. Peggy provided the crowd with several helpful tips and reminders on imaging and personal brand. We received nothing but positive feedback from the over 70 individuals in attendance at the event. While our event may have not been what Peggy would typically be asked to present at, I found that she was able to effectively tailor her presentation to her time-frame and the level of the audience. I would strongly recommend Peggy Parks to anyone looking for image and professional training rather it be for a large crowd or an individual session.
~Jake Jones, CPA, Senior Accountant Providing Assurance Services to Middle Market Companies
I met Peggy Parks when she first started her business and have enjoyed following her success for all these years. I can highly recommend her as a speaker, a trainer and a magnificent Image Consultant. Peggy and I have conducted workshops together for large corporations. I’ve referred business to her and she has referred business to me. She is smart, knowledgeable, very professional, totally delightful and dedicated to her clients and her business.

The Jabian team truly enjoyed Peggy Parks’ training seminar, “Edge Out Your Competition,” related to personal branding and image. Her interactive and thought-provoking style was very beneficial and entertaining for our group. Peggy was very generous with her time and was a pleasure to work with during the planning of the event. Her tips and supporting documentation were also valuable to us and have been used as references on multiple occasions. The comments regarding the seminar from our consultants were extremely positive and we are working on additional topics for Peggy to present to our organization in the future.

From the first moment I saw Peggy M. Parks at a joint AAM/LMA meeting, I knew she was a woman to remember. Interestingly, later that morning she introduced herself to the group of professional services marketers as “Peggy Parks – you never have a second chance to make a GREAT first impression!” She made a GREAT impression on me – so great that we hired Peggy to teach the women of our office how to portray similar professional images.
~Laura A. Snyder, Director of Marketing, Porter Keadle Moore, LLP
Having held the position of VP of Human Resources for large financial institutions for over twenty years, I thought I knew what it took to look “the part” until I attended a seminar with The Parks Image Group, Inc. The seminar was so informative I immediately contracted for a two-hour consultation with Peggy M. Parks that changed my life. She taught me how to project a look consistent with my professional accomplishments and expertise.
~Phyllis A. Blair, PHR, Washington, DC
