Do you want to maximise your route to success in the beauty industry?


We all lose our way sometimes and for a beauty business this can be disastrous but with the correct advice tips and support from the people in the know, you can get your business back in the right lane. On Tuesday 30th September at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden, the beauty companies association (bca) will hold their annual Business Seminar which will give you access to valuable tips, advice and contacts to get your business back on the right track, help it to grow and make your mark within our industry.

You will hear from an array of successful industry leaders who will be sharing their own experiences and insights into how to succeed in the beauty industry. KEYNOTE SPEAKERS are:
