“Our spring summer conference is always one of my favourite gatherings,” said Irish Spa Association co-founder, Anita Murray.

“Spring can serve as a great reminder for how beautiful change can be. Just as the flowers bloom it’s also a time for us to reflect on our businesses and what we want to sow, and in turn harvest, for the coming year.

“The spa and wellness industry is constantly evolving and we are thrilled to have Sarah Camilleri discussing heartfelt leadership. Sarah’s level of commitment to the spa and wellness industry is inspiring.

“We encourage the Irish spa industry to gain a competitive edge by joining our growing community of business leaders in advancing the spa and wellness sector in Ireland on May 27.”

"European Spa is proud of its partnership with the Irish Spa Association. I'm looking forward to meeting Irish connections – old and new – and sharing my thoughts on the power of heartfelt leadership and some of shifts that matter out in the spa world.”

The spring/summer conference will be a particularly special gathering as the Irish Spa Association is celebrating five years since its incorporation.

“We are beyond grateful to all our members, speakers and sponsors who have enriched the Irish Spa Association and our wider community this past five years,” said Murray.

“Looking back to our winter conference, award-winning coach and author Shane Craddock, left us with some valuable insights into the meaning of true success and fulfilment, and the inner side of business and leadership.”
