Meet the Activator – Richard Phillipart

Owner of The Boutique Atelier and Activator mentor, Richard Phillipart

My ideal mentee: I’m happy to work with any age of business but I can best help someone who is struggling to find time for themselves, losing their passion or struggling to keep their team inspired. I also think I can help salon owners looking for new direction with their business, thinking outside the box around hours, pricing, incentives, etc.Richard Phillipart

Salon owner, Cheshire

Richard opened his own salon aged just 22, and over the past 14 years in business has expanded The Boutique Atelier from four chairs to 21 and across three different locations; he now commands a team of 23 and is fully committed to their personal and professional development (“If you’re not inspired and motivated that translates into your team”). Alongside the increasing salon workload, he’s forged a name for himself in the session world, assisting global names, managing backstage teams and shooting regularly for magazines including Vogue.
