BBP 075 : How to Get Your Spa on the Map by Winning More Awards with Helena Grzesk

Welcome back to our regular Podcast episode and to cap off last week’s 8-episode marathon in support of the National Spa Week, here’s another inspiring episode you should listen to. . .

Recently, I was at the Good Spa Awards and had immensely enjoyed seeing spas who got recognized for their hard work. Plus last week, we had an episode with the founder of The Good Spa Guide, Daphne Metland and was able to touch on the subject about awards so on this episode, we will be talking about how to win awards and be recognized!

I had the best person in mind to join us on this episode and she’s no other than my very good friend. . . Helena Grzesk who is also a multi-awarded spa owner and manager. Currently, she’s the General Manager of UK Spa Association.

“Winning awards is great, it’s taking part that counts” may sound like a cliche but it’s actually true as it has benefits as well. . . you’ll find out later why and MORE!

Now before you go dive and enter all the awards in the beauty business industry, let’s hear how Helena started and her tips or strategies on how to start entering and win awards.
