These days Paul splits his time between lecturing in advanced treatment modalities, skin physiology and product ingredient formulations, with mentoring as a business coach to a number of salons in Australia and New Zealand, and of course staying hands-on by offering advanced services such as serious peels, dermal needling, laser and IPL, LED light therapies and scar revision to specialized clinics throughout the country.

“Many years ago I was sitting in a seminar at the Beauty Expo, listening to a very confident, funny and well spoken speaker…. ‘thinking’ what does a man know about the beauty industry? Well he had me captivated from the start! Every word rang true, almost like he was speaking about my own business!

He offered mentoring then, but I thought I can’t afford it, and why would this clever person want to mentor a small salon in Nelson? A few years later I met him again at another industry event, when I thought enough is enough! I NEED a mentor, I NEEDED Paul! From that moment I felt a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders, finally I had advice, a strategy and a plan to guide me. Our services grew, our retail doubled, KPI’s were being measured, client’s were having multi treatments. And most of all I could finally pay myself my worth and have a much needed holiday with my family!

Paul changed the way I managed my team, taught me the importance of educating my staff, improved the salon marketing, all this to become an award winning salon!

Thanks Paul for being a great support, coaching me over the years and sharing your own experiences and knowledge. I’m forever grateful.”
