In this issue of APJ we profile one of our members – Carolyn Della Zoppa from Adelaide who flew to Perth to attend our event and is committed to our conference programs because of the value she gains.. This is what she said:

The purpose and value of my APAN membership has to do with the importance of being part of an organisation that is committed to improving regulations and training standards for the future of the industry as a whole. It is important that we have a body that is prepared to fight for us. As a member, I benefit from the credibility of belonging to a leading industry standards body and I also benefit from the confidence that I can turn to a reputable organisation that can offer me support, business advice, legal advice and backup when the need arises. Additionally, APAN’s conference programs are fantastic, not only for learning, but building relationships and contacts with other, like-minded professionals as well as with supply companies.

Presenter:Miesha Marie

Today’s consumers are looking for skin treatment results that are substantially more advanced than in past years. To achieve this you require both advanced techniques as well as the support of cutting edge technologies.

Miesha Marie is qualified Naturopath and also holds qualifications in cosmetic chemistry as well as Business Management, Website Development and Digital Technologies. In this presentation she will discuss how businesses can substantially grow their income by establishing a successful and supportive collaboration with a complementary health practitioner. Having achieve success in this are Miesha will present successful strategies and ways of extending your business offerings and retaining and growing your clientele.

At this lecture you will learn:
