YOUR PERSONAL MENTOR
One of the most crucial elements of your success in Spa Business Education - and one you won’t find in other spa management courses online - is your personal course mentor. You’ll be introduced to yours at the beginning of the course.
Spa Business Education mentors are highly experienced spa management professionals who are here to answer any questions you might have throughout the modules and to offer insight and guidance as you complete each assignment.
Nikos Kouremenos, Ph.D.
As education manager at Raison d’Etre and a Spa Business Education course mentor, Nikos offers you invaluable insight that comes from helping to open and operate more than 50 health clubs and spas around the world. Students appreciate his wise, detailed feedback and how it deepens their understanding of the business topic at hand.
If Nikos is your mentor, be sure to ask him what planning the 2004 Athens Olympics and running a 7,500-square-meter spa had in common...and which was easier to manage. His experience is priceless!
Michael has been with Raison d’Etre for 20 years. He loves being a mentor to Spa Business Education students because he gets to draw from his full spectrum of experience - from top spas on four different continents - as he guides you through your education in spa management.
For a story that transcends what you might imagine spa management to be, ask Michael how an ancient Incan discovery helped him and his team create an award-winning spa in the Peruvian high Andes.
