Let’s Talk About Saks, Baby

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Saks get togethers are legendary and Let’s Talk About Saks was no different. The whole country being fog-bound on 2nd November did not stop over 600 salon owners, hair and beauty teams and HQ staff travelling from across the UK to converge with our leading suppliers at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham for a sparkly day-to-early hours affair.

In a two-hour presentation our dynamic HQ team showcased exciting hair, beauty, marketing and business plans for 2016 along with news of an array of career-path opportunities for our stylists and therapists. We then celebrated our finest with Special Recognition Awards… and a glitzy party with dancing into the night with non-stop tunes from our fave DJ, Nilesh.

Our MD Stephen Kee says: “Let’s Talk About Saks was about getting everyone together and celebrating what it is to be Saks! Our teams from all around the country came – from Aberdeen to Plymouth – and we loved giving them valuable insight into what makes Saks special and why being part of our brand sets us apart from competitors in their towns.

Stephen continues: “We also know the value of putting on a good party and everyone gained a huge sense of belonging to our wider Saks community.”
