“The best way to grow as a business [is] to learn from the mistakes of others and most importantly, our own.”
Royals Management will provide new and upcoming models with the skill sets and knowledge to pave the way of success within the industry by professional training and seminars from experts within the expansive market.
“A major project we are especially proud of was, the privilege of having Matthew Stephan Smith, a contestant from America’s Next Top Model, come teach a private model workshop with our models who are, majority, completely new to the industry,” Jimenez said.
“The models were thrilled and loved having someone who is making a [major] name for himself in the industry, come teach and give the them tips and insight of the modeling world.
“It was an amazing experience and Royals Management loved having Matthew come to Calgary for the first time because our team.”
