“I hired Jill Marinelli as the featured speaker for an industry-wide meeting to present: “The Power of Personal Style: How to Make a Memorable First Impression While Boosting Your Confidence – and Your Bottom Line.”
Jill addressed what can be a sensitive subject in an informative, insightful and graceful way. Her dynamic presentation, backed by credible studies, made the case for professionals dressing in a manner that is personal, powerful and projects confidence so that our experience, effectiveness and excellence will shine though.
Her expertise combined with an engaging presentation made for a memorable, highly praised experience.”
Andrea McHugh, Marketing Communications Manager
“I was able to attend Jill’s session at the Bryant University Women’s Summit this year and was blown away by the depth of her presentation. Jill effectively explained how the way we dress and carry ourselves indirectly communicates so many varied messages- both to others and ourselves. She integrated research and used great examples of how we can not only amp up our style but also feel fabulous and leave lasting impressions.
Jill is very relatable and approached the subject in a down to earth way, showing that every woman has the capability to make slight tweaks and changes to her style without breaking the bank or getting to her “ideal weight”. The experience was lively and interactive; I couldn’t wait to implement some of Jill’s ideas when it was over!”

“Jill uses evidence-based principles rooted in behavioral science to support her straightforward, simple advice. Her visual aids were powerful but succinct, and she was completely relatable and likable.
Sometimes, we just need to be reminded of what we already know; we need to be given permission to spend extra time and money on things that matter (i.e., make a big impact) and not on things that don’t! I really appreciated Jill’s approach and manner of humanizing embarrassing fashion foibles (like showing up to a meeting with a wrinkled shirt or a run in your nylons) while helping us gain perspective on small, easy fixes that will prevent us from stepping in those same traps over and over again.
I could listen to Jill all day; she is a remarkable person and a wonderful presenter!”
Emily Ryan, VP of Programs & Education
