There are few names on the global beauty scene as recognizable or respected as Paul Carbis. His super impressive resume spans a 20+ year career that has seen him work all over the world.

Paul not only talks about beauty, but he is also one of the most highly respected therapists in our country who is still treating clients weekly. He now resides in NZ and makes himself available to salon owners and therapists to help grow their businesses, skin treatments and knowledge in all things beauty.

“I keep getting asked to teach certain topics everywhere I go in this country, so I believe there is a real need for some advanced post graduate education for New Zealand therapists.”

Here is just a little of what you can glean from some time with a master of the beauty industry:

  • Paul is regarded as one of the foremost business coaches specializing in the beauty industry. His abundant knowledge and hands-on solutions have taken numerous salons of all sizes from struggling and turned them into award-winning businesses.

Whether it is better business solutions, staff management, leadership, retail sales or profit-making, he has the ability to take complex issues and leave you with simple-to-implement solutions that are tried and proven to work.
  • It is clear that Paul has an educational background because although his knowledge of skin function, biology and structure is outstanding, he makes it all sound so simple. Delivered in a way that you can relate to your customers so they can understand why they need treatments and your recommended homecare.
  • Over the years Paul has advised a number of product brands on formulations. His understanding of how ingredients interact with the skin comes from working with dozens of world-class salon-exclusive brands and training for a number of product suppliers.
  • As a multi-award-winning salon owner, Paul has owned and managed numerous very profitable salons throughout Australia and New Zealand. He knows what it is like to be an owner, pay the bills, manage staff, build a client base, buy equipment, do treatments, and sell products. He has physically done the long hours and understands the stress involved in running a successful salon.

“I engaged with Paul Carbis of CBM in 2017 just prior to purchasing my salon, House of Beauty Medi Spa.
My decision to employ Paul as my business coach was based on his credibility in the industry. He is a working aesthetician with more than 20 years of mistakes and fortunes as a multi-award-winning therapist and salon owner.

Having a savvy business brain myself, I still reached out for help. I wanted quick, honest business success avoiding potential error. I can proudly state that during this engagement my business success speaks for itself as I have tripled income and customer numbers. I also have some of the country’s most highly trained staff.

Without question, I would highly recommend Paul Carbis of CBM to help grow and support you and your business.”
