Mental wellness and five-star service were on the menu at this year’s Spa Education Academy (SEA) Online Spa Conference. The virtual event, attended by students and spa professionals alike, offered accessible educational sessions with leading industry experts.
This year’s edition featured keynote speeches from a range of experts – including designer Alberto Apostoli, Amanda Frasier of Forbes Travel Guide, Mandarin Oriental’s Jeremy McCarthy, Oxford University Professor Gerard Bodeker, and ISPA chairman Patrick Huey, vice-president of spa and retail at Montage International – each sharing their insight on topics as diverse as mental wellness, spa design and sustainable spa careers.
Kathryn Dowthwaite-Blay, director and founder of the SEA, said: “For four years, SEA has been meeting the needs of spa leaders and managers internationally by providing degree-level qualifications in spa management. We are so honoured to bring the spa community the latest academic research, expert insight and career development from such inspiration leaders.”
