Breakfast & hellos
Don’t be late. Please join us for a coffee and a 5* boutique buffet breakfast.

For the sake of social media: Jo Robertson
Salons sometimes just do social media for the sake of it and don’t understand why they are getting no return. The days are gone when clients just walk through your door. You have to find ways of integrating your business into their lives and this means using all communication methods as well as really understanding your 5* Ideal Client.

The Ever Blurring Lines Between Personal and Business Lives: Ryan Power
You should use your personal social media channels to rapidly grow your business presence in a more authentic way. By optimising your profile and getting involved in groups you can take advantage of this shift towards a more intimate setting.

Work with Google to maximise visibility of your business: John Macleod
We get it, you’d probably rather watch paint dry than talk Google marketing strategy. Ideas like “SEO” and “Google Ads” might seem way over your head, but the idea is really quite straightforward. Let’s explain.

Entrepreneur Revolution: Jessica Crane
This will be an experience, Jessica is going to take you on a journey and share an amazing business mindset tool you will have never experienced before!!

Hey Siri, book me a hair appointment: Phil Jackson
Forget forms and enquiries. Phil Jackson will show you the exciting world of chatbots and how this can help you keep the conversation going.

Are Your Salon Retail Sales Stuck At Around 2% Of Your Turnover?: Steve Hilliard
If they are, you’re not alone because the national average is around 2% … but the blunt truth is, the top 5% of salons in the UK are averaging more than 15% turnover from their retail sales.

The future of Shortcuts: Nicola Thompson
