Aesthetics Solutions

At the age of 21, I opened my first of many salons in London winning accolades and a few brickbats along the way. And like most people who start a new venture, I learnt through my mistakes. I made some good choices and a few bad decisions!

I gradually learnt one fundamental lesson in creating a good profitable business in the field of aesthetics and that was that hard work does not always pay! Best informed and timely decisions do.

One enduring concern of mine was after buying aesthetic equipment and devices, there was no full after sales support with many suppliers apart from provision of technical breakdown service.

Benefitting from that experience the idea of providing the best bespoke services was actualized.

Adauxi are a specialist practice working primarily with clients who are looking to grow/improve their businesses. 

They are focussed on working with clients to make their businesses better; to achieve your aims and minimise risks.  For most people, that means making more money faster or with less personal effort, and retaining as much as possible after tax.

They have a very strong combination of the elements of their experience:

  • Trained and worked in one of the world's foremost professional practices for many years. 
  • Directors have run their own businesses (meaning they can relate to your issues as they have been there ourselves).
  • Their experience is multinational, bringing invaluable perspectives to issues.
  • And they have also held very senior finance roles in public and private companies.
