On Monday 14th January we invited the whole salon group to Ashbourne for our annual meeting and awards presentation.
We kicked off with an incredibly motivational session with Paul Fishwick, Commercial Development Manager at L’Oreal Professionnel, who inspired us with a workshop on customer excellence and the five star experience. We moved on to a presentation by Sally who reviewed everything that our business and team had achieved in 2018 while looking ahead to what is in store for the next year.
Next, the awards presentations highlighted the team members who had excelled in 2018. Competition is very tough and we only have eight categories so all of the winners and nominees should be incredibly proud. Congratulations to the entire team for making 2018 so fantastic!
The apprentice award for fantastic future potential was awarded to Kaylah – Congratulations Kaylah and well done to our entire apprentice team!
Next up was the best newcomer award which was presented to Sarah- Sarah has made a fantastic start and works in the booking office in Ashbourne.
