This past week EDGE Beauty Bar was represented in Mexico at Joico's Destination Education. In a week long conference myself (Katie Porter), my business partner Suzette Kelly and one of our stylist's, Jessika Kinesella, got to take part in a seminar filled with world class leaders in the hair industry, networking with like-minded individuals in the business, and a plethora of educational training seminars in both salon management and hairstyling. We truly believe in education and the importance of keeping it fresh and new. Always learning and growing is so important to achieve success in this industry. We are so inspired by the people we met and classes we attended, and are more than happy to share this with our awesome staff and clientele. Keep reading to check out our amazing journey to Mexico!!
This picture may not seem like a big deal..... but it's a really BIG deal. Suzette and myself were lucky enough to not only get our picture taken with industry legend Neil Doucoff, but we made a great impression on some really important people which scored us a one on one sit down of direct discussion on how to make EDGE Beauty Bar the best it can possibly be. We are so inspired and feel like we hit the jackpot of knowledge. Neil Doucoff has been in the business for 40 years and specializes in salon management and strategies. He is a businessman, author, mentor, business trainer, coach & keynote speaker.
Sue & Jessika with Martin Hillier & Sue with Ben Malone!! It was an honour to hear them speak and watch their talented work!!!
Throughout the week we got to listen to industry legends, Sue Pemberton, Martin Hillier, Vivienne Mackindor, Neil Ducoff & Trevor Sorbie. Between business boot camps, cutting and coloring classes and fab fashion shows we had a busy week of learning.
While we learned so much... we also had SO. MUCH. FUN. Team building, social networking, and just plain good times was paramount to our trip. We dressed up for 80's rocker night, attended a fab white part, swam in the ocean and experienced wonderful cuisine. We highly recommended to anyone in this wonderful industry!! Thank you to everyone who made our trip the amazing experience it was. To all the friends we made..... See you in two years at Destination Education 2018!!!!
