Topic: NEW ADVANCES IN SKIN CANCER DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENTS
Presenter: Dr ANNETTE PEARCE

Clients and patients visit your salon or clinic predominantly because they have skincare concerns. One of your primary duty-of-care is to ensure that you thoroughly investigate any presented lesions, to determine their origin, severity and whether they will require further investigation by referring them to a dermatologist. In particular cancer lesions can sometime be overlooked, if misunderstood. On the other hand, identifying a suspect lesion can potentially save their life.

Dr Annette Pearce is a Dermatologist (Skin Specialist) based at Adelaide Dermatology Associates where she has her practice in Henley Beach. Her areas of interest are skin cancer diagnosis and surgery, inflammatory dermatology (acne, eczema and psoriasis), autoimmune dermatology, infective dermatology, drug eruptions (including oncology), paediatric dermatology as well as hair and nails.

In this lecture she will present various types of cancer lesions and discuss both surgical and non-surgical technique as well as Australian and local statistics.

At this lecture you will learn:

  • How to identify a suspect lesion
  • The latest non-drug therapies
  • Various dermatological technique for treating skin cancers
  • New advances in dermatology

Topic: THE POWER OF DESIGN
Presenter: Agatha Ozhylovski

People are good at expressing what they want, what they like, and even how much they will pay for an item, product, or a service. But what they aren’t good at is accessing where that value comes from, how and when it will influenced in making purchasing decisions. This is where a nascent field of neuroscience combined with architectural interior design comes into play. Neuro-science is a new tool used to determine why we prefer some products, companies and /or services over others, and why are we so loyal to them. Architectural interior decoration and design puts these studies into practice creating emotionally intelligent environments to further affirm your business culture. What does your business say about you? What message are you giving your clients?

Agatha Ozhylovski from AgathaO House of Design is an internationally recognised and awarded interior designer. She will explain how raw brain data combined with architectural interior decoration and design is helping companies unlock the mysteries of consumer choice and obtain long term growth in an increasingly competitive business landscape.

At this lecture you will learn:

  • What message are you giving to your clients when they enter your premises?
  • As competition grows and many businesses provide the same services, how can you create a point of difference?
  • How can you provide your clients both results as well as a unique experience?
  • The power of colour and texture?
