 Six high-impact lectures will deliver advanced educational topics, up-to-date industry news and powerful business strategies that will aim to transform your business and equip you with professional development like no other program.

Here is what one delegate said of the Sydney conference: “Best conference I have attended EVER.   The topics were of amazingly high quality, diverse and were delivered through dynamic speakers. The day was presented in a professional manner, the networking with suppliers and other colleagues was superb, food glorious and I filled my pad with enough information to inspire me for at least 12 months. I love the professionalism and passionate commitment of APAN in support of the industry and their rights to practice. No organisation comes even near them in their involvement with regulations and their depth of services and credibility. It was amazing value for money. So glad I attended and will not miss these events for the world.” Mary Inglestone, NSW.

Presenter: Gay Wardle, BSc (Dermal Therapies)
As new scientific research, regulations and education standards are coming to the forefront they are redefining our identity to new standards and so our treatment results are now facing the challenge to meet with higher expectations. Regulations will now tighten the rules on who can practice what and while this may be perceived as a threat by some, it also offers an excellent opportunity for the astute therapists and business owners to gain a stronger, more credible and more competitive position within the industry. Meeting the new standards will qualify you as a competent and trusted practitioner that consumers will preferentially single you out from the general beauty therapist. Gay Wardle is a highly qualified, multi-award winner and a highly skilled trainer and educator. She understands the changes and will present how to best position your business to achieve recognition and growth.

At this seminar you will learn:

  • Updating your treatment menu for a higher level of results
