Who are you going to be, this year?
Spas are undergoing an identity crisis.
"Wellness" is the watchword, yet few spas have made wellness programs pay...yet.
  
What's the wellness goal everyone shares?
Pain relief.
  
In a Massage Envy TV campaign, a man talks about "hands-on pain relief." Brilliant!
  
This Valentine's Day, why not ditch the rose petals and tell women what he wants?
Wellness = pain relief. Men = Growth.
Try it and tell us what happens.

What will you do differently in 2013?
Colleagues in a huddleThe drumbeat continues for better management education for spa businesses. We all feel it: the pace of change has accelerated. Spa owners and directors who have been successful in the past are stymied. The Great Recession has reset the rules of the game across every spa industry sector, from medical to resort. You can't grow sales in 2013 using even a 2010 skill set.
  
If you're ready to realize your full potential as a business leader this year, join us for our three-day, LIVE Spa Director's Management Intensive, March 17-19th, in Philadelphia. Taught by our Senior Consultant Lisa Starr, this seminar will equip you with the strategies and tactics you need to succeed in 2013.
  
The Agenda:
  • Essential financial management skills, made simple, compelling and "real" 
  • Recruiting, selecting and hiring "A" Players, your key differentiator  
  • Sales and Marketing in the age of extreme discounting and social media 
  • Compensation plans that reward productivity and retain top performers
  • The modern spa service menu: less is more 
  • Getting maximum results from your retail program
  • Retooling your spa's "salesflow" for higher service and retail revenues 
  • Motivating and leading spa employees
  • Quality management, complaint resolution and service recovery
Save with our Earlybird discounts, now through February 17th!
Our seminar venue is situated in the heart of Philadelphia's historic district.

How are we educating the next generation of spa directors?

The spa industry has grown up in the past decade, but spa management education has not kept pace.
A study on this problem was commissioned by The Global Spa and Wellness Summit, who tasked the Stanford Research Institute with understanding causes and solutions. Their must-read report is available as a download on the GSWS website. To continue reading, click here.
