You will start by learning about the 7-steps to developing excellence in your occupation, as well as how the principles of Lean can be employed in the hospitality and Lifestyle sector.

Once you have completed these stages, watch a video which demonstrates a graduated bob on a mannequin head, using a razor only. The masterclass then guides you to perform the tasks shown in the video and offers a set of downloadable resources to assist you in your practice.
