Simon kicked the day off by talking his team through his own journey with the Fellowship, that began as a ClubStar member.
“It’s amazing how ClubStar helps people’s careers,” says Simon, “each year it goes from strength to strength and I can’t thank the mentors enough for what they offer to members.”
For the Art Team, Simon has some incredible mentors lined up ready to give up their time to pass on their industry knowledge to these eight young hairdressers, including presentation skills with Debbie G and a photoshoot with Hooker & Young. Simon talked the team through how to make the most of their social media platforms, with their profile’s being raised in the industry throughout the year, giving them his best tips and tricks on how best to present themselves.
The new team enjoyed lunch together, before it was their turn to speak. Each member delivered a small presentation about themselves and their expectations for the year. It was the perfect way to find out about each other as a team, as well as getting a taste of each other’s presenting style to better see how they can work together on stage for future events.
“I am so excited to be working with such an amazing bunch of talented hairdressers and to be part of this creative team!” says team member Florence Neilson from Rhona McCallum Hair. “The opportunities are endless, and I can’t wait to get started on this exciting journey.”
Simon says, “The team’s first day was incredible. They are such a strong team and I cannot wait to see how their year goes. Each member is so talented and has such passion for this industry. They are all definitely going to be ones to watch in the future and I am glad I get to be a part of their journey!”
