Salon owners gather for global summit


This January, over 500 salon owners and managers from the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany and Finland gathered at the fifth annual Phorest Salon Owners Summit.  

Held in Dublin, this year's sold out two-day event boasted an impressive line-up of industry and non-industry speakers, who all fortified the key theme of the event: ‘Power Up'.

Following a tour of Ireland's capital city and a pre-summit welcome party, attendees then enjoyed a jam-packed day full of main stage presentations, with workshop sessions and networking opportunities. 

Ronan Perceval, CEO of Phorest, compered the summit, welcoming such names as Jo Fairley to the stage (pictured). As the entrepreneur behind the world famous Green & Blacks chocolate brand, Jo is also a salon owner and founder of The Beauty Bible. During her talk, she shared the secrets to building her business, as well as the lessons she learned from the experience.
