If you’re working long hours, struggling to meet wages, rent or supplier payments, and selling less retail and services, you are not alone.

Unfortunately 500 salons closed their doors in 2010 and more will close in 2011. The landscape of the beauty industry has changed dramatically in the last three years with the Global Financial Crisis and the internet having huge implications on the professional salon owner.

The Advanced Association of Beauty Therapists (AABTH) is holing a Beauty Industry Crisis Seminar to help salon and spa owners get on top of their business and selling skills.

Here, you will learn more about Scoopon, Cudo and Jump On it and similar selling tools and when best to use them. You’ll also learn more about discounted internet value packages and the implications they have on your salon.

The seminar will be held on Sunday, April 10, 2011 at NSW Leagues Club – 165 Phillip Street, Sydney NSW.

Guests are asked to arrive at 9.30am for a 10am start, and the day is scheduled to finish at 4.30pm.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will also be provided.

The seminar will also feature four guest speakers, including Gay Wardle, Australia’s most awarded salon owner and educator; Phillip Fernandez, director and founder of Wizard Business Consulting; Margaret Walsh, board member of the New Zealand Beauty Association; and Coleen Shaw, CIDESCO AACTH’s executive officer.

Please remember, there are only a limited number of spaces available.
