Throughout my career I have seen a constant need for retail and business development training, this never changes but how we execute it does. It can be a real struggle for the beauty industry to take their team out of the business for training, especially when we are often open 7 days a week. This also becomes more difficult if you have a high turnover of staff which is not only costly but you also find yourself in a constant need of training. 

I was born in the UK and grew up in Newcastle which is where my career and studies began. After 8 years in the industry I relocated to Australia in January 2011 and took the opportunity to create beautymill and now Beauty Sale Mate which operate between Melbourne and London. 

I specialise in Sales & Business Development Training and Coaching working with; Business Owners, Sales Executives, Spa/Salon Managers , Beauty Therapists and Aestheticians. I draw on over 15 years of experience in the industry, which includes Training, Management, Marketing and Business Development within the Skincare, Spa, Salon and Clinic arena. As well as industry experience I have an HND in Beauty and Related Sciences, Teacher Training Certificate, Certificate in Wellness Coaching and am a fully Certified DiSC trainer. 

I can work one on one with your business but I also offer an online training platform for time and budget poor businesses. I believe a combination of the two deliver the best results.

I have a passion for the wellness industry and a desire to hunt down solutions to create a happier work environment and bottom line. I look forward to working with you soon,

Best Wishes

We have been associated and with Katie since 2012. It has been a pleasure working with her during her time as chairperson of Australasian Spa Association where we found her impact on the industry body to be highly positive and prove successful in driving the association forward. Through this experience we then approached Katie to work with Subtle Energies. In her time working with us we have seen benchmark results within a very short period of time. We find her to be highly skilled coupled with a positive and warming personality that allows for a productive work environment.
