CONNECT FOR SUCCESS: ISBN is a forum where owners and managers of multiple-unit salon businesses (whether they have two locations or two thousand) gather together to learn from business experts, industry leaders and one another.
HONORABLE MENTION: The conference kicked things off by honoring OPI President George Schaeffer with the ISBN Legend Award for âturning the care of hands, feet and nails through professional products and services into a profit center for the salon.â
THE KEYNOTES: Bob Prosen, president and CEO of The Prosen Center for Business Advancement, showed members how to increase performance, productivity and profit through accountability-based leadership. And, social networking guru Jenny DeVaughn pulled examples from ISBN attendeesâ social networking sites to show how the new media can be used to drive brand awareness, create client interest and increase revenue.
SMALLER SETTINGS: ISBN members customized their own conference experiences by selecting among eight specialized roundtable discussions, with diverse topics from labor law to lease negotiations to marketing, and 15-minute one-on-one speed meetings with manufacturers of their choosing.
