Attendees flocked to the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden for the Beauty Companies Association’s annual
business seminar, which took place on September 30th.
Concentrating on maximising the success of businesses within the beauty industry, the event was a great chance for the range of high profile speakers to share stories and invaluable knowledge on how they first started out in the beauty industry and managed to pave their way to success.
The packed audience welcomed Dean Nathanson, chairman of the BCA, to the stage, who commenced the seminar with a warm welcome to all attendees and speakers, whilst discussing the benefits of joining the BCA. Dean then introduced our first speaker, Leah Totton.
Dr Leah Totton, current title holder of The Apprentice and Alan Sugar’s business partner, shared her journey from the beginning, where she worked for the NHS, to taking part and winning The Apprentice in 2012. Leah confessed how she had struggled to overcome her lack of confidence whilst taking part in The Apprentice and revealed how she wanted her clinics to eventually expand nationally.
Following this, Sandra Vallow, Senior Beauty Buyer at QVC, took to the stage to share her journey and experiences of working at QVC. She was able to share a short marketing video, which broadcasts how QVC works to help companies to expand and grow. Companies who work closely with QVC are able to use their marketing tool to predict how their target market reacts to key terms which can then be used to their own advantage.
Sean Harrington, Managing Director of Elemis, then addressed the packed room by detailing how the company had first come about, which had been because of the need to pay back some owed money, drawing a few laughs from the audience! Alongside speaking about his own success, Sean also offered attendees top tips and advice on running a successful business.
After a packed morning delegates then had a chance to network with other senior members of the Beauty Industry over lunch and drew the raffle, to raise funds for the Healing Hands Network, the BCA’s nominated charity, who also benefited from 10% of the profits from the event.
A delighted Dean Nathanson summed up the event; “Our annual business seminars have proved to be a big success with great feedback from attendees and speakers alike. I believe we have well and truly succeeded thanks to all our speakers and members who attended the event, and really relished in the opportunity to learn more about how to maximise their success. As the BCA grows, we feel like the industry benefits as a whole from the effort we have put in to ensure we stand as one and be recognised as the leading authority of the beauty industry. ”
Nutrition has been implicated in behaviour, mood and in the pathology and treatment of mental illness. With reports suggesting that 70 million working days are lost to stress alone, the loss to the UK economy could amount to as much as 4.5% GDP. Age-associated conditions, such as dementia, are becoming ever more prevalent. Likewise depression, and other psychopathologies, are elevated risk comorbidities with obesity, and unchecked rises in this condition may associate with a decline in the population’s mental health and wellbeing.
With this in mind the Nutrition Association’s conference on the 6-7th December will to review where the evidence is strong, where there are unmet needs for research and draw together the community working in this area. The conference programme, which will consist of plenary sessions aiming to set the scale of the problem in context, plus a series of four interlinked symposia examining the evidence linking nutrition to psychological outcomes, can be viewed online at, http://https://www.nutritionsociety.org/winter-conference-2016-diet-nutrition-and-mental-health-and-wellbeing
