Here's What You Can Expect

Actionable Content

Hundreds of the smartest beauty industry professionals return to the Beauty Business Summit™ for one reason. The content. They want to know “what’s next” for their business.

The Beauty Business Summit™ offers 2 full days of actionable, strategic content from industry experts who have walked in your shoes and who have overcome the same obstacles as you. And they want to help you take your business to the next level of excellence.

You will leave BBS with pages of notes full of actionable growth strategies that you can apply the second you return home.

Inspiration

The second reason the smartest beauty industry professionals return to the Beauty Business Summit™ is for a dose of inspiration they can’t find at any other conference within the beauty industry. That’s why we put people on stage who have actually done it. Hear heartfelt stories, ideas, and strategies from speakers such as Char Fontanills, Michael Pugliese, Michele Valeri, Ania Botero, and more. You will leave BBS feeling inspired to take your business, leadership, and marketing efforts to new heights. Most important, you will leave the Beauty Business Summit™ with a plan. A plan to grow your beauty business. A plan to grow your brand, and most importantly, a plan to grow profits.

Connections

We keep the Beauty Business Summit™ intimate (100 attendees as we ease back into gatherings).


You can expect to engage in rich conversations with fellow world-class beauty business owners who have faced similar problems. Share meals together with attendees and speakers (who are not off limits).


You will leave having formed meaningful relationships with potential future partners and fellow licensed professionals.


You’re invited to a global gathering.

We are seeking mission-driven beauty industry professionals who want to change the world. Our mission is to provide you with tools, resources, and connections to help advance your personal and professional development so that you can continue to have a positive impact on the world around you.

What Attendees Have To Say


Karen Shealy

" I attended the Summit last October and HIGHLY recommend the experience for any Esthy wanting to level up their knowledge base. It was my favorite inspirational conference in my 12 year career with many inspiring professional industry leaders! My favorite quote I have been using since is “just jump off the cliff!” Just book it! You won’t be disappointed!"

Stacy Allende

" The Beauty Business Summit has been an amazing experience. We learned vital information for our business to thrive and we met so many beautiful beauty professionals from across the country. It has been wonderful to make so many new friends and to get to meet our industry leaders in person. Including having a meal with them with the VIP experience. I would highly recommend attending to elevate your business practices and standards. I will definitely be attending again."

Janet Faello

" Maxine Drake is an absolute Godsend. Such a wealth of knowledge that she so eagerly shares to help you obtain optimum growth and success. Highly recommend!"

Yukie Stauffer

" My business has changed in an amzing way since I attended the Summit last year! This conference was very personal and inspiring, nothing like I had ever attended before. I applied what I learned after the Summit into my business and my business gross has more than doubled. I am attending this year's Summit in FL and can't wait!"

Kay O'Day

" I had the pleasure of attending the first Beauty Business Summit in Hawaii. What a transformative experience to share with a wonderful group of women/business owners that understand the beauty business and that can relate to each other on so many levels. Maxine Drake was a wonderful hostess, speaker, and event organizer. I highly recommend attending this unique and one of a kind event."

Lorrie Smith

" If you are looking to take your business to the next level - this is a must- attend event. From the moment you arrive, you will be immersed with motivational speakers to enable you to think outside the box to empower yourself to be an industry leader. I believe one of the key things I took away last year is that I connect and have gifts to share with my clients that they only can get from me. The summit empowered me to step out and take the chances that others may not. What are you waiting for, get your ticket today!!"

Pay it Forward

$20,000 Grant to Licensed Professional Business Owners

Because of the past year, the Beauty Business Summit’s mission has pivoted to give back to you, the licensed professional business owner. Your story is worth sharing.


In the past, we’ve gifted beauty schools ($20,000 in total) and loved supporting education. This year, we’re stimulating the economy and giving back to the community! Two Summit grants ($10,000 each) will be awarded to two beauty business owners! Thank you to Char Fontaills, CEO of Confidence By Char. She gifted an additional $10,000 Grant, making the total Grant $20,000!

 

BBS is the first-ever luxury event with a pay-it-forward concept (Pro-Impact). Each year we think of new ways to raise the bar to “wow” our guests. The Summit team will select five business owner finalists to Summit to share their vision. (Event ticket not included).


All attendees will vote for their favorite beauty business owner based on their presentation. You get to decide which two beauty business owners go home with $10,000 each!
