Lawrence Biscontini, our ISPA social media reporter-in-the-field for 2018, is a man of diverse talents. Not only does he serve as a mindful movement specialist, author, speaker and spa consultant for his non-profit FG2000, he also serves as the auctioneer for the ISPA Foundation Live Auction, grows his own tea as a teaologist, and teaches Pilates in Greek.
A veteran world traveler, Lawrence’s home is split among three islands – Mykonos, Manhattan and Puerto Rico. This year, in addition to his other travels, he will be visiting various parts of the globe in pursuit of finding out what ISPA members have in store for 2018, posing three questions: “What’s hot and new in trends?” “What’s hot and new in treatments?” and “What’s hot and new in technology?”
Through short video clips of Lawrence interviewing unique spas around the world, you will witness firsthand what spa directors and owners have up their sleeve for the New Year, and how different cultures play into business strategies.
So far, he has been to Cavo Tagoo Hotel in Mykonos, Greece and Exhale Spa in Manhattan, NYC, and has some fun surprises up his sleeve to share with everyone as he disembarks on more adventures.
If you’re wondering what other spas are doing to keep their clients happy, the “Spa Around the World with Lawrence” video series will give you a raw and entertaining take on keeping a spa running smoothly, spoken directly from leaders and experts of the industry.
We hope this video series sparks new ideas and techniques to motivate your team and further your success in spa.
Here, Lawrence talks with Di Medlock of Exhale Spa in NYC.
