Taking 10 ...Festive Flash Week 2

Taking 10 ...Festive Flash Week 2

Sunday 9th December 2018

By Michelle Hammond

In our second FESTIVE FLASH we zoom in on two more incredible contributors. The stewardess of the self-care revolution that is Tracey Woodward, CEO of Aromatherapy Associates who announced this week that she’ll be stepping down and moving on from her role with AA to pastures new in 2019 and the energetic entrepreneur and innovative light that is Sammy Gharieni, Founder of Gharieni Group.

We asked the following questions from our series....

Q2 - What do you believe the principles of a successful business are today?
Tracey Woodward said:

Emotional intelligence. There’s no right or wrong but the focus has to be meaningful to 21st century living. 

Sammy Gharieni told us:

First and foremost, innovation is key and must be in the forefront. Investment in research and joining forces with people outside the industry has led to incredible partnerships and ground breaking technology for what used to be a commodity. 

‘Gharieni is elevating the treatment experience by incorporating equipment into the modalities and protocols thereby truly offering a unique encounter between guest and practitioner.

Q6 - What would you say was the single most advantageous character trait for success?  

Tracey Woodward told us:

Learning that there is always more than one way to do things. As a team you can always find solutions and no one person is bigger than any brand if you get the plan right.

Sammy Gharieni said:

I am driven by passion. I live and work at a constant elevated pace and I absolutely love what I do which is really vital and important in the path that one ultimately chooses. I love to listen to the marketplace and ingest all the feedback and information that other people share.

Q10 - Finally,  what’s your favourite quote or the best advice you’ve ever been given?

Tracey Woodward said:

From my mum (originally Henry Ford) #Whether you a you can or you can’t you are right!

Sammy Gharieni told us:

 “Don’t be intimidated by other people’s opinions. Only mediocrity is sure of itself, so take risks and do what you really want to do.” - Paul Coelho, Aleph
