Sara Holmes began her career in the luxury hotel market, spending a number of years working for London’s exclusive Savoy Group and then for a variety of independent hotels – sharpening her sales and marketing skills along the way. She later gained extensive business development experience working within Virgin Corporation’s Incentive & Motivation Division.

All of the above has helped Sara to shape and perfect the Stuart Holmes Salon – the Cheltenham business she jointly owns with husband, Stuart, and which will soon be celebrating its 15th birthday.

With 50 staff to manage and a reputation for delivering first-class customer service to uphold, Sara’s meticulous eye for detail has become sacrosanct.

At Salon Smart, Sara will be joining an expert panel for a live audience Q&A session.

Salon Smart takes place on Sunday 3 November at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Dublin
