Let me start by saying thank you to everyone that came to the annual heaven skincare seminar and awards, it took a lot of pre planning ( thank you Duncan Matthews) , long hours (sometimes during the night!) but it was so worth the hard work, because it was quite simply the best time.

Monday morning 18th November seen the opening of our heaven skincare seminar at park house hotel Shifnal. This hotel is the best in Shifnal and they looked after our every need, their staff were so accommodating and prepared our conferencing rooms to perfection!

So the morning started with a room full of our lovely Heaven distributors from all over Europe, heaven skincare usa , heaven in holland , skincare organics Ireland, the sanctuary spain , along with all our independent stockists and distributors from all over the UK.

The seminar was held to discuss  heaven skincare  plans for the future (really exciting stuff, which you will all see unfold over the coming months) and to revise and instil brand standards, as well as ensuring all our distributors and stockists globally are singing from the same song sheet (so to speak).

It is also vital to the health of the brand to air any issues, problems, good news stories etc….and best of all welcome new faces from around the world.

One of the areas we covered is how important the blogging community is, and how is goes hand in hand with social media platforms, which is imperative in a time were on-line networking is big business and brings a lot of new custom on board.

After a very enjoyable first day I thought I would take out the heaven angels for a meal at one of my favourite restaurants henris bar and brasserie , It is a really lovely place, the staff are always helpful, friendly,  and the food is fabulous! We had a wonderful night and just what we all needed after an intense albeit enjoyable first day.

Day Two…

Day two I woke feeling slightly nervous about having to hold a seminar and demonstration to a room full of 130+ stockists, distributors, therapists and office staff ! you would think I would be used to it by now, but I suppose it’s just human nature in order to give you that all important adrenalin buzz.

I arrived suitably late oops! and proceeded to apologise to the room, who thankfully were very forgiving. I delved straight into the Heaven journey over the coming months (Top Secret!) and all news discussed was received very well, and with glowing smiles!

So with the morning over and lunch devoured ! It was time to demonstrate the newest treatment I have introduced to  heaven skincare  , the treatment that has been creating so much excitement not just in the heaven camp, but already in the media…..        

The Afternoon Tea Facial

This treatment is set to once again just like the Bee Sting Facial , to revolutionize the spa industry, Why? because just like the Bee Sting Facial `It Works` only this time it also works on emotion, almost like cognitive therapy does, it helps you change the way the see and do things, it is a very spiritual experience for both client and therapist.

This treatment really needs to be experienced in order to understand and feel the emotive and spiritual power of it. Whilst I was doing the demonstration the entire room were the most relaxed they had been in two days (and I saw who nodded off hehe) but don’t worry I wont name and shame you, it is allowed and actually a great testament to the treatment, because it really does have such a powerful effect, falling asleep is a compliment!

It was actually a really emotional experience for everyone, we all work incredibly hard throughout the company , so for me to be able to do this for all the staff is very important to me.

After the award ceremony,  dinner was served (delicious it was too!) followed by our entertainment for the evening `The Drifters`
