Chairperson's Message

Simon ShawSimon Shaw Chairperson

One of the things I've learnt during my time as Chairperson is the the Fellowship never stands still.  Everyone involved with this creative organisation is always planning for the future.  That doesn't mean we take our eye off the present; we just all understand that in this fast-paced industry, change has to happen to keep people engaged. 

Speaking of change, the first round of the F.A.M.E. Team auditions took place in September and the eight semi-finalists have just completed the final stage at Salon International.  Our new Chancelleor, Ashleigh Hodges is in charge of this process I have no doubt that she will do a fabulous job.  

We're going to have a new F.A.M.E. Team Leader for 2020 too; exciting news and somebody who was part of the team themselves in the past.  Now renowned for their international and TV work, its going to be an exciting addition - so watch this space.  At this point, I'd like to thank Nick Irwin for his inspirational leadership of the F.A.M.E. Team over the last three years - his tenure ends in December and he has done some incredible work.  

Paul Dennison and Jonathan Andrew will be running the Colour Project and Barber Project respectively for another year and as Ken mentioned in his letter we have two new leaders for Project X and ClubStar Art Team.  In short, the future of all the projects is looking really bright!

Have a look at the Fellowship website for all of our upcoming events as it's a really busy time of year and I do hope you will all support us in our new venue for the Luncheon & Awards too.  

See you soon,
