Saks Hair & Beauty salon owners got together in style on Monday 17th October. They headed to the Shepherds Bush K-West Hotel in London with their friends from L’Oréal Professionnel for their Conference.
The Saks Hair & Beauty HQ Team shared the 2023 business plans. There was team building, a motivational speaker and a preview of next year’s product launches from L’Oréal. There was also a scavenger hunt around London, catch-ups and lots of fun.
Motivational speaker Pete Clark entertained, challenged and inspired everyone, teaching all about unshakable confidence, growth mindset, little wins, building resilient teams and much more.
For the scavenger hunt on the second day, the group broke off into smaller teams and went out and about around London, tasked with a list of 20 things to find and do. Team Saks love a challenge and they walked, tubed, laughed and danced their way through the list, finding the blue door from Notting Hill and national treasure Paddington Bear, along the way.
“What a fantastic couple of days,” said Paul Fishwick from L’Oréal “It’s not every day you have such a wealth of experience in one room spending time together, sharing and collaborating. And of course, it would not be a Saks get-together without an enormous amount of laughter along the way!”
“A big thank you to Saks HQ and L’Oréal for a brilliant weekend,” said Lee Kettlewell, owner of Saks Ripon. “Amazing hospitality, company and the guest speaker Pete was so refreshing.” Claire Denyer from Saks Kingshill added: “Thank you for a fabulous day and evening. Loads of great information and Pete the guest speaker was awesome. Lovely to see everyone. Lot’s of laughter.”
“The annual Saks Conference is a brilliant opportunity to get together and share our plans for the year ahead,” concluded Stephen Kee, Saks Managing Director “There is so much that we do for our salon owners that it’s important for us to let them know about all the help, advice, support and training available to them.” Time out of the salon is precious so Saks made sure that a brilliant time was had by all. Even better given that the team from L’Oréal were the absolute perfect hosts.
