Marlise du Plessis passionately believes that a stylish, well-groomed image lays the foundation for credibility, successful business relationships and achievement. With a clear vision like that it’s easy to see why Marlise is one of Chata Romano’s busiest consultants.

From meeting and empowering individuals through personal consultations, shopping appointments and magical makeovers to working with corporate clients and presenting workshops, Marlise has taken her career to the next level. Trying to establish that perfect balance between her family and professional aspirations as a highly successful global IT expert, Marlise ultimately found her calling as a Chata Romano Image Consultant. Giving her the freedom to effectively manage her own time and use her business experience and MBA, Marlise finally achieved her perfect fit. “Chata inspired me to start my own business through her successful, trusted brand and I’ve never looked back!”

As an Image Consultant Marlise is determined to solve the dreaded “I have nothing to wear” scenario once and for all. With confidence building as her main focus point, Marlise uses her magic touch to transform women and men into the self-assured individuals they are meant to be. Her clients expect professionalism, sincerity, empathy, and a special bit of magic with one client saying. “To have a professional, knowledgeable, kind and understanding person leading you in the makeover process is absolutely necessary. Thank you, Marlise – you are all of that!”– Marita van Rensburg”.

Marlise’s uncompromising work ethic is not standing still and when asked about her plans for 2016 she excitedly revealed, “I’m looking forward to inspiring, energising and enriching many more clients, and expanding my Chata business through focusing on our Men’s Image Consultations and Corporate Business.” Many women take a while to find their true career fit, and thankfully for Marlise, she found her true calling and is making the most of it every day.
