The fourth Professional Beauty Industry Roundtable focused on a topic relevant to all salon owners, salon staff and suppliers; education and training.

Eight key contributors enthusiastically shared ideas to highlight important issues faced by the beauty industry, specifically training priorities, the effectiveness of training programs, keeping pace with new techniques, keeping salon staff trained up on new techniques and technology, national standards, RTOs and identifying and dealing with different types of customers.

In attendance was Lycon Cosmetics’ Lydia Jordane, Aesthetic Enterprises’ Tracy Lee Dobbin, Ex Import Niche Products’ Otto Mitter, Skin Fitness’ Linda Fenech, InSkin Cosmedics’ Maria Cocciolone, The Skin Clinic Concord’s Belinda Merlino, MediSpa Solutions’ Mariza Nuttall and Face To Face Skin & Body Care’s Maree Mondello.

Our participants offered a comprehensive look into the pressing issues affecting the professional beauty industry by sharing their expertise, knowledge and experience, which we captured in a series of videos, filmed at Camperdown Commons.
