I've just returned from the Matrix Destination hair show in Las Vegas and I was pleasantly surprised. I've attended so many shows over the last 20 years that I have to admit I have become a little jaded. I didn't expect much, but in all honesty it was an excellent show. The technical classes were great and the business and motivational classes were excellent. I especially enjoyed Joel Zeff, a motivational speaker who uses "Improv style" comedy to teach teamwork, communication and creativity. Read more about Joel at www.joelzeff.com. Another fantastic speaker was Dr. Lew Losoncy. I've seen Dr. Lew at least 5 times and I still enjoy all his stories. Dr. Lew makes you proud to be part of the salon industry.
