On Monday the 12th January at the Marker Hotel in Dublin, Phorest, who is the industry leader in salon software in the UK and Ireland, held their first Salon Owners Summit, which had some of the biggest names and speakers in the world of hair and beauty on show.
One of the main highlights of the event was the much anticipated ‘Industry Leaders Forum’, which featured some of the most successful leaders in the business, namely Nigel Kenny, Dylan Bradshaw, Lilac Miller, Celia Rose and Ellen Kavanagh, joining together to form a panel of experts to share their views in industry marketing, skills and up-and-coming trends, sharing their knowledge to a very large eager crowd.
Nigel Kenny, salon owner of Hair by Nigel & Co, added,
The key to success in any business is simple, love, positive energy and willingness for hard work.
He also spoke to the crowd about the importance of teamwork and imagination, and in keeping your marketing unique and informative - something that speaks volumes about the personality of your brand. Nigel also mentioned the great honour it was to be recognised as an industry leader and that to be in the same breath as some of the other speakers was very flattering. Overall the day was a huge success with delegates leaving inspired and focused.
