Mentor Chris Williams led the session, getting the team up to speed with the exciting calendar he has planned for 2018, whilst talking them through his top tips on how to make the most of their social media platforms to enhance their industry profile throughout the year.
Simon Shaw from Simon Shaw Education was on hand to deliver the team their first dose of education with a presentation skills session. Each team member presented a mood board based on either one of their hobbies or their trend predictions for Spring/Summer 2018, whilst also being asked to read out the lyrics to their favourite song. The aim was to break the ice, build the team’s confidence and get equipped with a few essential tips and techniques on the perfect presentation, putting them in good stead for all the exciting opportunities coming their way this year.
Team member Gemma Evans from NashWhite says, “Our first day was a great experience. Simon’s presentation skills workshop really built up my confidence and by the end of the day I felt as if I had learnt so much already. I’m so excited for our up-and-coming dates with a wonderful range of different educators.”
Team member Caitlin Haynes from Idlewild Hairdressing says, “I took so much away from our first day! I am really looking forward to this year and I can’t wait to pick up a tint brush and start some colouring. Bring on meeting some fantastic inspirational people and spending my year alongside some of the most talented individuals!”
