WORLD CLASS EDUCATION
WORLD CLASS BRANDS
INTERNATIONAL GUEST SPEAKERS
Passion to Profits 2.0 is an annual educational conference hosted by PBS to celebrate the passion for the beauty industry and provide world class education to their stockists. This year Professional Beauty Solutions flew in the best experts from around the globe to create 13 amazing sessions. Our P2P conference and gala dinner was a massive success, with many highlights and amazing lessons that our loyal salons took away from, as well as enjoying a little bit of fun and mingling in the evening.
PBS provided its' salons, spas and clinics the opportunity to give their business a boost with our all-encompassing event; attendees gained valuable industry insight to a better and more profitable understanding of the brands and their products with the founders and international experts in a motivating workshop environment.
“I am feeling privileged to be a part of the PBS family. Their customer service and delivery of training as well as promptly delivering my parcels is above and beyond other companies in the same business. I found all sessions [at Passion to Profits] I attended to be highly informative, entertaining and kept me wanting more." - Janine Cox, Secret Beauty

IMAGE’s Corporate Educator Dawn Clifford took the audience on a scientific skin journey and uncovered in-depth the ingredients that result in undeniable and amazing change. As one of the world’s most innovative skincare brands, Dawn explained how to customise the right treatment plan to solve any client’s skin issue.

All the way from the USA, Youngblood’s global corporate trainer had two interactive sessions where the audience could see, touch and smell why Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics is the world’s leading mineral cosmetics brand. With his bubbly personality and humour, the audience gained new knowledge about how to invigorate their makeup routines for themselves and their clients, and some ab-work after all the laughter.
The newest addition to the PBS range created a lot of excitement among attendees. Janine Tait, the founder and owner of Bestow Beauty, graciously flew over from New Zealand to introduce her beautiful brand and educate the PBS community about the benefits from treating the skin from within. Janine schooled us and salon owners who attended on why Dermo-Nutrition can’t be ignored when treating skin conditions. With over 30 years’ experience Janine captivated the audience with her wealth of knowledge.
While the audience was sipping on chocolate and fruit covered coconuts, Matt Williams explained why Sunescape is the go to tanning brand for Australia’s number 1 tanning salon. And how could you resist the amazing tanning display we had on show?
