Leeza Gibbons hosts Global Salon Business Awards Banquet

There’s an adage in the business world that says: “Real leaders are ordinary people with extraordinary determination.” 


Those words of wisdom certainly apply to the hairdressing salon professionals who were recently named winners in the first-ever Global Salon Business Awards in London, England.  “The Awards pay tribute to entrepreneurial salon and spa owners around the globe whose business acumen and notable business accomplishments have had a lasting and positive impact on their local communities as well as their bottom lines,” explains Paula Kent Meehan, the program’s founder.


From May 30 to June 1,2004, winners, judges and other industry icons assembled in London for the official awards presentation plus some, networking, sightseeing and just plain fun!  Using the themes of leadership, structure, creativity, and consistency, the 3-day event featured a stellar lineup that kicked off with a special, Award Winners Welcome Reception at London’s Houses of Parliament. On day one, the Global Salon Business Forum was in high gear with top-drawer business-building presentations held at The British Museum, followed by an evening dinner cruise on the River Thames.


Day two shone a spotlight on creativity, with presentations on the art of Visual Merchandising at Harrods Department Store, a networking session at the London Hilton and an evening champagne and dessert reception at The Design Museum. The education and networking seminar culminated on the last day with additional business-building presentations and a lavish Global Salon Business Awards Banquet hosted by Hollywood TV Personality, Leeza Gibbons. At this gala event, the 81 GLOBAL SALON BUSINESS AWARDS winners were recognized and honored for their entrepreneurial achievements in the following salon services categories:
