Kia’s Surprise : Your bolder city car for the more assertive city life – Picanto IV

Every space is with value. Every space you posses, space you’re able to lend, grants you the pride of ownership. So how would you then want to ride Kia’s all-new Picanto?

imageUrban hustle has been more challenging this recent millennium. From metropolitan traffic to workplace politics, an account person’s daily steer has to be agile with the ever accelerating gears to be successful.

Feels the need from the more demanding dealings of the city life, Kia Motors Corporation surprises the city slickers with the all-new Picanto. “The new model retains all of the outgoing model’s strengths but now offers increased performance and new technologies” says Hernando D. Ganac, Vice President for Sales and Marketing of Columbian Autocar Corporation (CAC), the exclusive Kia vehicle distributor in the Philippines.

Kia’s signature tiger-nose grille now extends the sides up to the headlights, more reminiscent of the sportier models like the Rio and the Forte.

The exterior now has bolder body lines with 15mm added to the wheelbase without any increase to the over all length of the vehicle.

Possesses ideal combination of directional stability and assured handling brought by improvements made in the chassis. The more balanced and responsive driving experience promotes safer commute with a more precise vehicle reaction and more felt sensation of a direct steering-wheel-to-road connection.

Cabin is entirely modernized and refined giving an added sense of quality for the occupants. Enhanced headroom, legroom and shoulder room highlights the increase in cabin space.

The larger interior capacity can be noticed all around the vehicle.

Indeed, a Grand Tourer (GT) city car for you.

How would you want to ride the all-new Picanto?


For the subcompact car class, the widened interior space is the selling edge of the all-new Picanto. From someone who spent my college days driving such type of vehicle, the more breathable spatial experience while on transit makes your every peso reasonable.

Every space is with value. Every space you posses, space you’re able to lend, grants you the pride of ownership. So how would you then want to ride the all-new Picanto?

 

As a hitchhiker workmate on the wider passenger’s seat?

or a rewarded driver with the updated dashboard?

Either, keep afire for career success and let the odds witness your “Power to Surprise”.

Denims to Deals: Tricks to rock Denims at work

It is ideal to choose either the raw wash denim or the bleached denim. These washes appear plain and smart. Both finishes don’t have creases, distortions or high contrasting patterns.

Denim has that rugged appeal. An impression which the corporate dress code has stringent restrictions. A punctuation-near to a taboo clause on the human resource handbook. Undoubtedly though, Denim has this intra-occupational charm. Who would not want to mix a denim piece on their wear set for work? How to turn these denim pieces to be appropriate for corporate dealings?


TRICKS


Type of Wash

It is ideal to choose either the raw wash denim or the bleached denim. These washes appear plain and smart. Both finishes don’t have creases, distortions or high contrasting patterns. A Raw denim finish could be blue which mimics the usual navy blue slacks perfect for corporate appeal. These could also be black, brown, any darker tint depending on the dye used. Bleached denim finish on the other hand, is the lighter but still plain versions. From white to light blue, depending on how long the bleaching was done.

 

Tag it along with Leather

For denims to be more corporately de rigueur, leather would be an ideal accomplice. Remember to filter which piece on your outfit to be the denim. Denim shirt paired with office slacks or a work smart shirt and denim pant in tandem, just don’t over dress a denim then, tuck in. Use a belt and a leather shoes with the same color. Brown leather is perfect for denim. Not the metal studded or the buckled. Try it also with leather shoes with minimal brogue details.

The fortification of being a Master Closer is when you have let the prospect sign on the dotted line. Your choice of wardrobe though, affects how people perceive you as a specific kind of breed. Clothing helps a lot on positive first impressions. As to for choosing to strut a Denim, the deal is closed more of HOW you are wearing a carefully picked wash and a not “over denim-ed” look.

 

Breathing Fabrics: Soothing the stiff corporate clothing

Remember that prospects can only be comfortable if you, on the first place is composed and relaxed. When they are comfortable, they listen.

Within milliseconds upon prospects gaze at you, they swiftly classify either you are a “closer” or a “loser”. A matter of a letter to differentiate, let that “C” be the Clothes you’re wearing the moment you offered the first handshake. Clothes which provide comfort and enhance confidence.


TRICKS


Color and Pattern

Shades of our shirt affect significantly in our dealings. Colors are influential to a persons mood.

imageWhite conveys purity. My default hue on first client meeting. As you try to gauge your prospect’s personality on your first encounter, it is strategic to drape something pure, neutral and neat. Befriend them and pitch clean. Of course, don’t forget to ask for the sale. They may sign in now or at least lessen the number of meetings towards the final close. On days when it seems like you’re getting the hard time befriending the prospects, go back to White.

imageLight Blue denotes sincerity. The tint of choice to enhance credibility. When prospects say NO because the pitch sounds too-good-to-be-true or perhaps you have been having credibility objections for how many days, wear vibrant of blue shirt the next day!

image
Pastel radiates relaxation. Best to don on pressured days. When you’re seem going to a chasm of rejections or panting before the month closes, don’t let your prospect feel the cram. Wear pastels! Also, best during mid day humid pitches, open house events, exhibits, field activities.

Color coordination denotes being organized and composed. Any of your interlocutor surely appreciates your offer due to the pleasant reception of the colors engulfing them as you pitch. Refrain from wearing Red and busy patterns like herringbone, houndstooth and plaid or checkered.

Fabric and Fit

imageDrapes dictate disposition. When we are comfortable with what we are wearing, we just simply feel good about ourselves. This then transcends to anyone you are interacting with may it be a client, your boss or a mate. They’ll love the presence of someone with a relaxed vibe.  Fabrics that breathe with you like lightweight polyester, drape and rayon, are good source of confidence.

Well fit clothes denote that you are prepared for winning. Thus, your first effort then for success on this context is to simply get your sizes and measurements sharp.  Have these measurements saved on your mobile’s notes and be sure to update it at least every quarter. Buy pieces which aren’t too snug yet not too loose.

Making the prospect feel comfortable during the entire sales encounter should be of your utmost goal. Remember that they can only be comfortable if you on the first place, is composed and relaxed. When they are comfortable, they listen.

Scoring an impressive first impression primarily lies on your externals. Drape those closing skills with clothes that exude instant and irresistible admiration exactly on the first tic the prospect saw you.

After that engaging prelude, making the prospect feel comfortable during the entire sales encounter should be of your utmost goal. Remember that they can only be comfortable if you, on the first place is composed and relaxed. When they are comfortable, they listen.
