The Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Spa Conference 2015

South Africa’s leading educational programme for spa, wellness and hospitality professionals

Hosting an average of 250 delegates, the Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Spa Conference is without doubt the largest gathering of spa and wellness professionals in South Africa, focusing on building capacity, raising benchmarks and adding value to the industry, in addition to the infinite networking opportunity

This results in a program that is focused in helping delegates to better understand their business, master industry best practices and directly apply the lessons in the business.

The Theme for 2015: Shaping the Future of the Spa Industry
 
Let’s take a Fresh but Structured look at your Spa Business.
 
The word Strategy is often enough to scare most away from the very ‘enjoyment’ of owning your own business. The idea of complex marketing jargon can be intimidating at the best of times.

Strategic thinking is the ability to see the total picture, to spot the trends and understand the competitive landscape, to see where the business needs to go and to lead it into the future. Time management and restructuring the working day takes on a whole new meaning. Thus continued satisfaction in owning your own business, will mean sustainability. Working more efficiently with what you’ve got. Strategic Thinking or more simply, good planning is now more important than ever.

So let’s take a closer look at what’s in this ‘Method in the Madness’ called Strategic Thinking in the interest of running profitable spa businesses.

10.15 – 11.00 Strategic Thinking – take your Leadership Skills to the Next Level - Hilda Lunderstedt

Strategic thinking is the ability to see the total picture, to spot the trends and understand the competitive landscape, to see where the business needs to go and to lead it into the future. Time management and restructuring the working day takes on a whole new meaning. Thus continued satisfaction in owning your own business, will mean sustainability.

11.00 – 11.30 Mid Morning Break

11.30 – 12.15 Thinking as an International Brand – Maria Lambros (CEO Prestige Cosmetics)

Think of a brand as a reputation. Building a reputation in any market, involves a first impression, which comes from the initial interactions someone has with your company, products, and services.


12.15 – 13.00 Making the Numbers Work – Aimee Hollis (Dermalogica)

Are you looking at numbers or data? Maybe you're thinking about what the numbers mean - whether they're good, bad or indifferent, how they compare to others, how you might analyse them - and how you might present what they're saying in the most effective way?

13.00 – 14.00 Lunch

14.00 – 14.30 Building Pride in the SA Spa Industry

Creating a positive, unified image of the South African Spa Industry that builds pride and promotes investment and tourism.

The Nielsen 2013 Consumers Who Care Study reported that 50 percent of global consumers said they would be willing to reward companies that give back to society by paying more for their goods and services. Research shows that giving back is one of the most important things to millennials, ranging in age between 18 and 36, which may be part of your spa’s present target demographic.

The wealth of knowledge shared during discussions allow us to effectively tackle the issues facing the industry today and help us strategically plan for the future." said ISPA President Lynne McNees. Spa Industry leaders share their thoughts on the future of the spa industry from multiple perspectives: aesthetics, spa therapies, wellness trends and mindfulness.
 


Monday, 27 July 2015

8.30 – 9.00 Registration

9.00 – 9.30 Welcome

9.30 – 11.00 Winning Business Principles – Ryan Malfara

Having won the world’s toughest race, The Polar Race, a biennial 650+ kilometer race over sea ice and arctic islands, Ryan has devoted a substantial amount of time to understanding the mental component that makes his physical feats possible and can apply these lessons in a business context to align focus and create a winning mind-set.

11.00 – 11.30 Mid Morning Tea Break

11.30 – 12.15 Spa Innovation, Trends and Relevance - Arnaud Diaz (Thalgo, France)

As the spa business matures into an increasingly global phenomenon, we are seeing an increasing level of specialisation, professionalisation and cross-disciplinary focus. Explores the top spa trends and innovations to optimise your business and ensure relevance.

12.15 – 13.00 Shaping your Communication – Interview – Renate Klass (!QMS Medicosmetics) and Daniel Calbacho (Red Marketing)

Have you ever received a newsletter and felt the sender really wasn't thinking about what you needed to know or hear? Or perhaps you've even delivered communications yourself and realized, in retrospect, that you really hadn't got the measure of your audience and their needs.

This can have a negative effect, or even produce an effect that is the exact opposite of the one you had intended. Whether you need to communicate general day-to-day information or "big news" about major changes in your spa, the best communications start with some good planning.

13.00 – 14.00 Lunch

14.00 – 14.30 Tomorrow’s Wellness Client

As the spa industry grows and more consumers become educated about holistic wellness, spas must evolve to exceed meeting the needs of their customers and begin fulfilling their wants.

14.30 – 16.00 Love your Job – Spa industry responsibilities, commitments and passions (Panel Discussion)

Choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life – Confucius
Be inspired by industry leaders as they share their thoughts on multiple areas in the spa industry from business models, retail, unique and signature spa treatments, training and mentorship, ingredients and environmental responsibilities, addressing and nurturing their love and passion for the industry.
