Introducing The Curate Collective

Introducing The Curate Collective, our brand new bi-monthly seminar, bringing industry insiders and beauty experts directly to our beauty brand community. If you're lacking in certain skills, running your business solo or just looking for a community to share insights, tech and tools with you've come to the right place.

Twice a month we’ll be bringing you speakers who have a diverse set of expertise to help you grow your business. Our first set of speakers are in and we'd love you to start signing up for the virtual talks.

Each session will run for approximately an hour, with our speaker providing a presentation followed by a Q&A. You'll receive details on how to watch each event live and if you can't make the times listed - don't worry - each talk will be recorded and shared with you to rewatch at your leisure.
