Leading salon group, Saks, recently treated its UK franchisees to an action-packed weekend in the Lake District – and even heavy snowfall couldn’t quell their enthusiasm.
More than 50 people headed to the Low Wood Bay Hotel for a weekend of outward-bounds adventures including archery, canoeing and fire-making. It wasn’t all about hard work though, with time to enjoy the hotel spa and network in a coaching workshop by Steve Gretsy of ROI Ltd.
Stephen Kee, managing director of Saks, said: “Everyone’s always so busy running their salons but it’s really important to get everyone together when we can so that our franchisees reap the benefits of being part of the wider Saks community. And this time we thought we’d do something completely different.
“Promoting team-building and healthy competition between old rivals worked really welland it was a great opportunity for Saks HQ staff to build on their relationships with our franchisees. It was all about exchanging ideas, asking advice, making new friends and having fun with like-minded people. Everyone left tired, but happy and motivated.”
