This week we wrapped up our FIRST EVER Actiiv Educator Summit! This summit has been in the works for months and was incredibly successful, as we were able to get so many passionate, talented stylists together in one room to educate and teach about how to spread the Actiiv love. We were able to officially certify 19 of our 2022 Educators as hair loss experts, as well as have a jam-packed 3 days filled with education, networking, and fun!
“I was already sold on the brand, but after this week I’m ready to hit the ground running,” says Educator Ryan Scott, “I want to order samples, I want to get in salons, I’m thinking about the whole nine yards. I feel like I’m equipped with everything I need to be successful in helping change the game on hair loss. We’re going to change the game.”
The three-day event kicked off with an Actiiv-themed rooftop party at the Up Rooftop bar at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Nashville. This brought the educators and corporate team together and gave them an opportunity to network and unwind before the busy week ahead of them.
Monday was the first class held at Salon Service Group's store where the team learned presentation skills and took their Actiiv Certification class. Jared Reynolds, Actiiv’s founder, started the class with his personal hair loss story and how the company came to be. Chad White, our Education Director followed with some overall product knowledge. Jared then taught a class titled Hair Growth 101 + Covid Hair Loss Science.
The summit continued on Tuesday, with a class titled “Framework” taught by Chad on cutting techniques at The Parker House on Main in Franklin, TN. The class was centered around how to cut hairstyles for low-density hair and for clients who want texture and volume without losing length. It featured Chad’s signature “invisible layers” technique.
Throughout the day, each educator was interviewed on their personal experience with Actiiv, so stay up to date with our social media to hear their stories! The cutting class was followed by a trip to Arrington Vineyards for some wine tasting.
The summit wrapped up on Wednesday with presentations by the educators themselves! The team tested everything they learned and practiced their education skills. Chad critiqued and gave pointers to each of the educators to prepare them to teach their own classes.
“We have had such an amazing training here,” says veteran educator BobbyJo Andreason, “I’m excited and pumped to get back out into the field again to educate and hit the salons and really get Actiiv out there big time.”
It was an incredible few days and we're already looking forward to next year's summit. Thank you to everyone who attended and made it such a success!
