On top of an awesome month overseas which included a 10 day trip to London to attend the Sassoon Academy and Salon International, winning Kitomba NZARH ’Salon of the Year’ and ‘Employer of Choice‘ awards was the ultimate highlight!
The Reds team have been buzzing ever since. They are so proud to be part of an award winning team. It has meant they must be on their ‘A game’ consistently as our clients expectations are that much higher.
We have recruited two fantastic new team members and I have a constant flow of CV’s over my desk.
Two of our super stylists have now achieved finalist status in the ‘Business Stylist of the Year’ award. This has been amazing for their careers. Fleur has now left on her OE with a great CV and Nichola is booked solidly for a minimum 3 months in advance!
Our clients love being part of our success and we served bubbles and cake for weeks!
Our new client referrals have increased dramatically as our clients feel confident to recommend us to friends and associates.
For me, as a salon owner, it has validated the systems and processes I am continually implementing and refining.
Just to enter the business awards is a worthwhile experience as it forces you to analyse every aspect of your business.
Every year I learn more about my bottom line as I work on my business rather than in it.
Anyone who is hesitant to enter I urge to just do it! The first time I entered I filled in the boxes on the form in biro! Needless to say I didn’t win!
The only thing now is……..what next?
