Douglas A. Cox
Doug is a 21st century dreamcatcher, business leader and an international motivational speaker and communications consultant. For over a quarter of a century, his words and ideas have produced results and created positive changes for salons and stylist alike. Doug’s unique leadership is renowned in beauty! By sharing the secrets of shepherding time, space, money and people, salons have been able to increase sales and profitability.
In the early 70’s, Doug and stage partner John Smith lit up the hearts and minds of salon owners via the Redken inspired “Challenges of Success”… first ever “business seminar”. Doug is a mentor to many of the industry’s greatest stars. No one individual has inspired our profession as he has. Passionate, funny, bright, fresh, and entertaining, are a just few words his audience have used to describe his presentations. His newest book, “SH-Boom, the power of positive aging,” is wonderfully reviewed.
“Doug’s understanding of the human spirit is unrivaled; his ability to unleash its awesome power is legendary!” – Neil Ducoff, Strategies Magazine
