8th May – Deborah Mitchell, Marina Gask and Daniele Fiandaca
An award-winning celebrity beauty guru, Deborah began her career in a small treatment room in a health club, and is now one of the most recognised beauty gurus. With worldwide acclaim and awards in both beauty and business, Deborah Mitchell’s products, Heaven By Deborah Mitchell, are used by royalty, celebrities and well-known business people.
Deborah became more famous for her Bee Venom invention, ABEETOXIN. With many copycats in the market place trying to emulate her success, Rodial, Dr Manuka and many more, she has won litigation against for their blatant use of her reputation. Although it should be said it can be taken as a compliment, the real Heaven Skincare is the brand on everyone’s lips as the most successful niche market brand.
With more than 25 years of experience as an esthetician, Deborah has developed a completely unique approach to looking after the skin using extensive knowledge of ancient herbal remedies. This has enabled Deborah to create a unique way of thinking about beautiful skin and optimisation for perfection.
Deborah will be sharing her amazing experience and why we should Ask For What We Want.
