It was an honor to be invited to present at The Nouveau Contour World Conference in Amsterdam, last month, hosted by Armand Hoes. Practitioners, distributors and trainers from Twenty-five different countries attended and Armand graciously welcomed them in each of their native language.
Each presenter demonstrated their unique approach and application to procedures. Those attending the classes left with new techniques and renewed inspiration, myself included. There’s nothing like getting to watch your peers work. This happens so infrequently and is such a gift. Karen Betts did eyebrows on a young, Alopecia girl that were breathtaking. I did an areola tattoo on a breast cancer survivor that turned out to be a Reiki Master. She had a spellbinding effect on the audience and did incredibly interesting work in hospice. It seemed as though every model in every case had some inspirational quality that permeated the room.
There was such a beautiful exchange amidst the attendees. Nothing was sold, pitched or purchased. This conference was pure education.
Armand was definitely the Host with the Most! He saw to every detail and arranged evenings for us global distributors to exchange ideas and share marketing strategies, etc. It is also so interesting to hear our business benefits and challenges from around the world, first hand.
Amsterdam is the sweetest city, filled with the bustle of bicycles and canal boats. I always feel so at home there. It is super friendly, compact and completely accessible and filled with extraordinary scenery. Romantically lit bridges over the countless canals make Amsterdam such a great walking city. Its rich history is intriguing and the art galleries are breathtaking. This was my third trip there for Nouveau Contour and I look forward to going back. We will keep you posted on the dates for 2014 and if at all possible, try to make it and become inspired.
