Greater Boston Area, March 20, 2017 – SpaHive Mastermind and Pop Up Boutique, the spa industry’s only day-long, business mastermind announces dynamic speakers and an interactive program for Providence, RI on May 16, 2017. Unlike a trade show with workshops and product demonstrations, SpaHive Mastermind attendees will come together to dig deep and work in groups to learn from one another and raise the standards of spa. Guest speakers will enhance the mastermind process and give insight to the challenges facing spa professional including operations, retail, social media, marketing and life balance. The Pop Up Boutiques will feature skincare, cosmetics, technology and retail partners who will also participate in the mastermind sessions. Additional SpaHive Mastermind and Pop Up Boutiques are scheduled for Cleveland, OH and Sturbridge, MA.

SpaHive Mastermind and Pop Up Boutique creator, Julie Pankey of JMPankey Partners is an industry veteran and thought leader. “With the spa industry ever changing, it is impossible to be “in the know” all the time,” commented Pankey. “Sometimes, you need to be taken out of your element for a day to improve who you are and what you do.” Pankey’s vision is to provide an environment where industry leaders, owners, managers, directors, founders and entrepreneurs can come together and learn from each other’s strengths. “Mastermind groups offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen business and personal skills. A mastermind group helps you and your colleagues bust through the challenges holding you back from continued success,” shared Pankey.

Guest speakers will interact with the group to share industry insight, explore new technologies and trends. “As spa professionals, we want to hear from the people who are making it happen in our industry and theirs,” commented Pankey. “We are excited to have such a dynamic group of leaders collaborate with us. Each presenter brings great business philosophies and practices to the forefront so that spas can easily implement them in their own operations.”
