Every salon is dealt with individually by customising a business development plan specific to their unique requirements. We understand that one size doesn’t fit all, so following a set program doesn’t get the best results.

We offer both hands-on, practical teaching working side by side with therapists and owners as well as reporting on KPI’s and salon systems. This means real growth results not just analysis of numbers.

We deal specifically with the beauty industry and have a long history of success spanning 25+ years.

Highly qualified and extensively experienced facilitators.

Proven results from literally thousands of elated customers.

CBM’s mission is to raise the next generation of beauty therapists and clinic owners to be expertly trained with an extensive knowledge base that will change the public perception of a beauty salon to be a place to go for all skin concerns.

Quality training can positively change individuals, teams and an industry to be perceived as experts in their field. CBM is determined to deliver a level of training that will achieve such changes.

At CBM we have to genuinely like the people we join with. It means taking a genuine interest in their professional lives, businesses, staff and ultimately the care of their customers.
