The Only Way Forward is To Retreat

This October saw Salon Business Expert and Founder of The International Salon Business School, Liz McKeon, facilitating a ‘3 Day Business Owners Retreat’ for Wella RED Business Owners at Wildhive Callow Hall in the Derbyshire countryside, where attendees were able to take time out from their busy work lives away from distractions, and totally immerse themselves in what they want for themselves and for their business.

It has been proven that we are more inclined to learn when relaxed and in a relaxed and stress-free environment!  And these three days surpassed that expectation, providing salon owners with classroom and networking opportunities, while at the same time the chance to chill out, relax and take time away from their business to reflect, plan and prepare for the next twelve months.

Although Liz’s retreats are classroom based and business focused, the retreat programme included a number of fun activities – wake up yoga, cycling with Liz, a pottery making class and a vision board session, in addition to a number of workshops sessions, exploring what Business Owners want to accomplish and mapping out plans to achieve personal and business goals.

Commenting on the Retreat, Liz McKeon, Salon Business Expert, said, “we have had the most incredible three days, not just in the classroom, but with all the other activities which are designed to give everyone much needed ‘business switch off time’. Everyone enjoyed the unique experience of living in treehouses throughout their stay and the most amazing food, cocktails and drinks.  I am so happy that everybody left having had the most amazing time and everyone looks and feels so much happier, ready to work on and improve their business.  I am 100% convinced that there is serious merit in ‘sometimes the only way to move forward is to retreat’!

Allison Hargreaves, Head of Education Craft & Community UKI said, “It was fantastic to have Liz McKeon host the Wella RED Business Owners Retreat. She provided our Wella RED guests with insights and actionable strategies on how to upscale their businesses, leaving everyone inspired and motivated to implement positive changes.”

“Just home from the most inspiring and motivating business retreat.  It has been great to have pressed pause and spend time with like-minded legends.  Everyone loved the whole experience and were so so so positive about the business sessions”, 

“Had the best time at the Wella Business Retreat! Such a great opportunity to work on your self care and well-being and business goals! Spent with Liz McKeon who was such an inspiring and knowledgeable person regarding all things business.” Wella RED Business Owners
