At this year’s annual 2to10 Conference, 2to10 announced it’s firm commitment to the growth and development of the future generation of leaders within the beauty industry. The first step? A competition!
Officially referred to as the ‘Emerging Leaders,’ these talented young individual’s were divided into three teams to compete for the first annual Emerging Leader Cup! They then had several weeks to collaboratively create and ultimately present their business ‘sketch’ on ‘The Salon of Tomorrow’ in front of three judges.
Tom Kuhn, Founder/Creator of The 2to10 Project & Qnity Inc, served as a mentor to provide guidance and prepare each team for their final presentations in front of the judges; Stacey Soble (Editor of Salon Today), James Griffith (Owner of James Griffith Salons), and Stefanie Fox (Owner of Salon CoLab).
Last week, each group delivered a virtual presentation of their final concept to the judges! Criteria for judging was based upon the following areas;
- Is it feasible?
- Is it original?
- Is it innovative?
- And most importantly, is it executable within the next 24 months?
The prize? $2500 worth of 2to10 Tickets to next year’s Conference, and a feature of the winning concept in the July/August issue of Salon Today magazine!
The Emerging Cup is made possible by Qnity and the following Sponsors
