Face, Place, Space

The biggest challenge beauty brands face today is keeping pace with their consumers. The information landscape is more open than ever but unless brands have three fundamental building blocks in place – FACE/PLACE/SPACE – then their efforts to drive awareness and sales will be fruitless.

The Red Tree Consultancy is delighted to confirm the influential, high-level speakers at The 2017 Beauty Symposium who will explore how building these three concepts are critical components for brand success.

Taking the platform will be:

Michael Van Clarke

Michael is one of London’s leading hairdressers, with over 30 years’ experience. He has looked after nine Royal families, political leaders and A-List celebrities and worked with leading international designers for their catwalk shows and for top magazines, getting his first Vogue spread at just 19. The Michael Van Clarke salon holds a record number of British Hairdressing Business Awards including UK Salon of the Year. Michael’s product line, 3’’’more inches, takes a unique approach to genuine hair care and has a growing international presence.
