Poonam Bajpai on Image Consulting

May 03, 2017

Poonam Bajpai, a small town lady came to Mumbai in 2003 and created her own space in the area of her interest. She is running a communication skill and an image consulting institute and trained thousands of people so far. Most of her students are now successful in their respective fields. Let's meet this dynamic and successful lady and know the unknown facts about her…

Tell us about your journey from Allahabad to Mumbai in brief?

It wasn't easy coming from a small town and then adapting to the professional modern work culture but it definitely was a tough phase for me and it did bog me down at one point of time. I don't regret what I've been through. I've had ups and downs, super highs and some really low lows. I've been so blessed that I could never say, 'I wish this didn't happen.' It's part of who I am. There's nothing in my life that's so faugh. I'm fundamentally an optimist.

How were you as a student?

I'm the daughter of an IAF dad. As a student I was a versatile child, I was the topper throughout my academic career. I have completed my M.A. in Psychology from Allahabad University,  Post Graduate Diploma in Psychological Counseling from Delhi. Holding many more certification. 

Who is your inspiration and why?

Definitely, my father was my biggest motivator personality or inspiration. He has made me proud. My father is my hero for multiple reasons. His experiences, choices, courage, bravery, intelligence, compassion and life style make him my hero. He was always been my mentor, career advisor, and role model.

I could never understand why dad spent hours gazing at an already shining uniform laced with glistening medals. But today "I can understand everything and that played a major role in making me what I am today!

What is your current profession and what are the other things that you love doing?

I have been running my Communication Skills and Image Consulting business for 15 years, under the name of Versatile Skills Development Pvt. Ltd.-VSDPL (previous name was Versatile Institute of Communication Skills), established in 2003 at Andheri West, Mumbai. 

 Apart from that I am also the Founder Trustee of the Versatile Global NGO & work full time as its Managing Trustee since 2010. It works for the elevation of under privileged Children, Women and Youth. 

What is Image Consulting and how did you land up into this profession?

Image Consulting is all about an Art who needs a strong and creative observation ideas. The Image Consultant is the Artist. The canvas is the individual person. However, image is more than physical appearance. And it takes only 5 seconds to form a first impression. A major part of communication is visual and what we see we remember and what we hear we forget.

Being the student of psychology, I was always the good observer and mind reader. Touching people’s lives and helping them evolve and thus move towards success is a fabulous feeling. It gave me the foundation to become an image consultant. 

What are you future plans?

I would love to have my own TV show one day, by this tag line which I created for my own Image Consultancy brand “Versatile Personality” and maybe my own line of clothing and accessories. I think i have great ideas to share & would love to see them to achieve their next level of success by connecting your image to who you really are.
