Paulette Scaife
Team and Culture Leader – Silkwood School
I can honestly say that I would not be the successful manager I am today without the guidance, support and knowledge Angela provided me with. Her extensive knowledge of spa operations and strategic planning, combined with adaptable teaching methods have stayed with me and when I come across a new challenge, I often refer back to her management manuals for support. I do not know a stronger, more passionate or experienced driver of change and her commitment to moving the spa industry forward is unlike anything I have ever come across.

Being personally mentored by Angela, who has actually founded her own successful businesses and understands the challenges and essentials for success, is absolute gold for my confidence as a new business owner. The Diploma qualification at the end is a bonus!
Wellness business owner
This is by far the smartest business decision I have ever made. Mentoring was the most effective way for me to reach not only my professional goals, but also tick off some personal goals. The confidence and structure I have gained working with Angela, who always goes above and beyond to help me to shine, has made a huge impact on the business, my working relationships and my personal life.
