1.0 INTRODUCTION

A well-groomed person is attentive to details, organized and self-disciplined – at least that is the assumption!

In our highly competitive business environment, customers have a choice of companies to do business with.

When you represent your organization, customers perceive the organization through the way you interact, look, and talk and behave.
