Course Content

This course is split into 3 workshops and focuses on the 5 key areas of running a successful business which are;
1. Revolutionary Strategies.
Having a clear and specific strategy for your business. You will work together with Alan on a 2 year business plan, focusing on where you currently are, where you want to be, and how you want to get there.
2. Focus on Profit.
Your 2 year business plan will also revolve around a profit target that you are aiming towards in Year 2. This section of the programme focuses very much around understanding the ‘numbers’ side of your business – learning how to become more profitable and how to achieve this profit. This includes nailing budgets, stock and wage bills, utilisation of your team etc, all put into a very easy to understand format.
3. Commited Team.
Having a consistently motivated and engaged team. This includes retention and recruitment, creating a brand/ethos that people want to follow and work for, regular team meetings, one-to-ones etc.
4. Raving Fans.
Creating a following of raving fans, not just clients. You want a client base of people who won’t go down the road for a 50% colour sale. Branding, ethos and core values also come into this.
5. Unique Marketing.
Having a unique online and offline marketing strategy for your business.

After each workshop, you will have an action plan of things to implement and action in your business to move towards your 2 year target.
In addition to these 3 workshops, you will also receive 24 online lessons run by Alan to back-up and refresh all of the learning with Alan. You will also receive a copy of the industry bestseller – ‘The Fantastic Salon’ book.
