On April 20-22nd Hair Club sponsored its 10th Annual Trichotillomania Conference in Newark, New Jersey. This was Elmwood Parks first time attending the conference. Accompanying me was Bob Goupil, Director of NCC who is definitely a familiar face and loved by all of TLC. Bob was the one that that everyone their felt comfort in seeing again and with his knowledge and expertise we couldn’t have done this weekend so smoothly without him. Larry Craft, our Regional Technical Supervisor for The Northeast ‘WOWED’ the crowd. He provided detailed information on our process to allow families to feel more comfortable. Jamie Lightsey, our Technical Supervisor was a true asset for not only her technical wisdom but also her expertise in speaking to families that visited our booth. Ashley Suitt, our Membership Advisor did a great job in assisting Jamie with demonstrating the technologies and hair samples that were displayed. Their warm smiles and kindness made everyone feel very welcomed.
As a New Business Consultant this event was truly an amazing experience. I met so many families and such wonderful kids. Hearing comments such as “Thank you for saving my child’s life” and “Thank you for everything your company has done for my daughter and kids” Was truly a moving experience. Even though as Consultants we experience dealing with families and situations like this every day; nothing can compare to the reality of seeing what these families endure through their journey to finding their own perfect solution. This conference showed me that! I would highly recommend that when this conference is in your town you make yourself apart it. I have been a consultant for 6 years and trust me you will walk away with so much more then you ever experience in your centers. Afterwards you definitely will have more passion for this cause.
Hair Club had a drawing for a Walt Disney World Trip for two. It was pleasures watching the kids sign up to possibly win a chance to go see Mickey and his friends. Congratulations to our winner Vicki Carney from sunny California. We remember her at the booth so excited writing her name on the slip. Oh, the excitement to see her when she heard her name called. It was truly priceless. Her smile alone will make you smile! We were thanked by so many, but it is me that has to give thanks. Thank You, HCM for allowing me to represent such an awesome cause. Also many thanks to all the Hair Club for kids for being YOU!!
