Leading Ladies

Lainee Read

Author Lainee Read | Social Media Manager, Sam Villa


What do Eden Sassoon, Tracey Hughes, Candy Shaw, Sonya Dove & Jenny Strebe have in common?

They’ ll be making history when they take the stage together for the very first time addressing, head-on, the issues facing women in the beauty industry today in Florida @ the Premiere Orlando Beauty Show on June 5th 2017 at 12.45 pm, on the Main Stage.

Industry great (and ‘ token male’ ) SAM VILLA will moderate this star-studded, ‘ girl-power’ panel. The women intend to tackle the issues they face both in the beauty business and in life in general as wives, girlfriends, mothers, daughters, business women, entrepreneurs, educators and philanthropists. Spearheaded by Tracey Hughes, who recently moved to the U.S., Tracey hand-picked the panel based upon the women’ s strong commitments to ‘ give back’ as both educators and philanthropists.

“We aim to provide the audience with a raw, emotional, honest and heartfelt look into life on the road and in the limelight. About what it takes to get to the top (and stay there)! And about the quest for that all elusive ‘ holy grail’ known as ‘ balance’ ,” said Hughes.

Hear their inspirational stories, listen as they share their challenges and be motivated by their determination to overcome adversity as these never before seen together entrepreneurs and educators collaborate to inspire the audience.

“We are excited to offer for the first time this unique and timely program to showcase the powerful Leading Ladies of the beauty industry,” says Howard Britt- President, Premier Show Group.
