Welcome to the Wynne Business Spa Industry Update!

Welcome to the Wynne Business blog--I'd like to involve you in a frank and engaging conversation about the latest business thinking, trends and market conditions in the spa industry. Each month, if not more often, I'll share my thoughts about the issues that impact spa operators--from small to large. As an avid consumer of conventional business media, I'll also pass along resources and ideas that I find especially useful. (Check out this month's issue of Harvard Business Review for an excellent article on strategies for dealing with low-cost competitors!)

I'm very excited to announce the launch of the Bay Area Spa Leadership Round Table on January 31, 2007. If you'd like more information on this quarterly Round Table, designed to disseminate best practices and provide cutting-edge management intelligence, please contact Program Host Dionne Fountain at Membership is open to spas with annual revenues of $1 million or more, and a different member spa hosts the meeting each quarter.

The three hour format includes a group round table discussion, an expert presenter, and a "case study" in which the host spa can present an idea or issue they'd like group input on. Meetings run from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and kick off with a continental breakfast at 9:15 a.m. Annual membership will be just $100 for four meetings, and up to two representatives of the member business management team may attend.

The Bay Area Spa Leadership Round Table is sponsored by Wynne Business and Spa Trade.
