Topic: THE LATEST IN THE FIELD OF DERMATOLOGY – New advances and treatment options
Presenter: Dr Philip Singh – MBBS

Many of the clients or patients that visit your salon or clinic while seeking to improve the appearance of their skin may also exhibit dermatological disorders that if not correctly identified and addressed, may compromise your overall treatment outcomes. It would be true to say that the treatment of skin in aesthetics also required that we address acute and chronic skin disorders.

Dr Philip Singh graduated with an MBBS from the University of Western Australia in 2005 and completed his intern training at Sir Charles Gardner Hospital. Moving to Brisbane to pursue his interest in Dermatology, he worked in private practice as a Clinical Assistant in Dermatology and also held a post as a Research Officer with the Dermatology Research Centre at The University of Queensland, School of Medicine.

Topic: MINDFUL DESIGN – The new tool for business growth
Presenter: Agatha Ozhylovski – Director, AgathaO House of Design

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 they were influenced in making purchasing decisions. This is where a nascent field of neuroscience combined with architectural interior design comes into play.

Neuroscience 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 a 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?
