10.15  – 11.00            Keeping your Spa Business Relevant

In nature, the plants that survive are the ones that can adapt quickly to changes in nature. Those that can’t adapt quickly enough will vanish.

 12.15 – 13.00            Entrepreneurship: Why you need a Mission

Entrepreneurs drive economies and, in my opinion, this is the most important sector in the majority of economies, a sector that will become more and more important as we move forward into the future.  It is entrepreneurs who will innovate, create the products of the future and who will generate the most jobs in difficult economic climates. But with most businesses failing within the first couple of years (9 out of 10 in the first 5 years); I cannot help but wonder what made the difference between the 1 that made it through that first 5 years and those that did not. I am sure there are many factors that played a role, but I am convinced that one of the major differentiators is the mission that drives the business.

13.00 – 14.00             Lunch

15.30 – 16.00             Taking it ON-LINE

The conventional brick-and-mortar approach of simply maintaining an online presence should be replaced with an active e-trading option where consumers can engage with a product or service.
