Recently I had the opportunity to attend the Association of Change Management Professionals' (ACMP®) annual conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, titled appropriately Change Management 2015.

Wow, harsh review from a one-time customer who apparently has a very high standard. I wonder if clear preferences were verbalized? And, why mention that the guy was Asian?

The service and the skill level here is top-notch. I highly recommend this salon.
