21st Anniversary of Wella Business Network Live

Monday, 09 July 2018 13:53

Wella Professionals recently held its  two-day Business Network Live event in the sumptuous surrounds of The Belfry Hotel & Resort, West Midlands. 200 delegates, experienced some serious business motivation and networking opportunities.

Hosted by TV celebrity hairdresser and presenter, Michael Douglas, the event saw salon owners, their teams and Wella personnel gather for what is one of the highlights of the hairdressing calendar. It also proved an opportunity for the newly appointed General Manage of Coty Professional Beauty, UK & Ireland, Stefan Laux, to spend valuable time with the people at the heart of the industry.  

The agenda included motivational and inspiring sessions with an array of speakers from a wide range of backgrounds, all with various success stories. In addition, a presentation on the latest industry insights delivered a true reflection of the hairdressing industry and its key challenges right now. The event began with multi award-winning speaker, Geoff Ramm, whose presentation focused on offering an A-List service. Other speakers included Holly Tucker, MBE, on her mission to build her brand, Not on The High Street and jounalist Farrah Storr, who delivered an incredible session on her career highs and lows launching magazines and stepping out of your comfort zone to achieve greatness.  Also on-stage was founder of the #DoSomethingForNothing campaign, Joshua Coombes, who told his moving story of helping others, which began by cutting the hair for homeless people and has taken him all over the world. 

On the subject of effective communication and the importance of listening, hostage negotiator Richard Mullender got the crowd interacting and working together in various exercises to demonstrate just how important listening really is. Other speakers included the founder of the ‘#do something for nothing’ campaign, Joshua Coombes, who told his moving story of helping others, which began by cutting the hair for homeless people and has taken him all over the world. Arguably one of the highlights of the two days was a moving presentation from TV adventurer, Ben Fogle. Sharing many of his adventure stories, including climbing Everest, Ben’s moving speech was emotional and poignant. Times columnist Phillip Collins covered some great business topics in a highly amusing session which the audience related brilliantly to. To close the amazing two days, Levi Roots, who is best knows for his Reggae Reggae sauce ended with an upbeat and extremely empowering session on his rags to riches story.

Wella’s Director of Education and Events, Sheila Jackson, who launched the event 21 years ago, closed Business Network Live 2018: “This has truly been an amazing two days. We have had so much fun together but are all walking away armed with more tools to help grow our businesses, with bundles of inspiration and hopefully the motivation to get us through to next year, when we will be back. Thank you all for being part of this remarkable event.”
