Nicky Tzimas advocates for people’s rights through education

Nicky Tzimas, founder and Director of the Cosmetic Professional Development Institute of Australia (CPD Institute), is a firm believer in people’s rights. With a solid background in behavioural sciences and mental health, Nicky is an advocate of ethical practice in the cosmetic aesthetic industry.

The creation of CPD Institute was born out of Nicky’s concern over clients who were seeking treatments without thorough awareness of the risks and complications involved. She had patients from other practices approaching her clinic for services, and it was evident that they had previously been uninformed of the potential risks and problems that could have resulted from their past procedures.

Terri Vinson and the synergy of her creations

“There’s a lot of ‘synergies’ that go hand in hand with my brand name,” declared Terri Vinson, Cosmetic Chemist & Founder of Synergie Skin. Her brand resonates with her philosophy of clean science, where she takes the best from science and the best from nature and harnesses them together in synergy without questionable and potentially harmful ingredients.

For Terri, synergy is not just a buzzword, but a platform for producing effective products and treatments for her clientele. She expounded on the science behind how everything should work together in harmony. “There’s a synergy between skincare and makeup that has to work together. If you use the very best skin care and put pore-clogging makeup over the top of it for the next ten hours, then you’re negating all the benefits of great skin care. So, your makeup has to be in synergy with your skin care. Secondly, skin care and makeup have to work in synergy with your skin. If it’s not working in synergy, that’s when some ingredients can lead to breakouts and reactions. Thirdly, the ingredients of the product themselves must work in synergy. A lot of people don’t understand that formulating isn’t just about throwing a bunch of ingredients into a pot and calling it a product. It’s a science, and you have to understand how those ingredients work together in synergy to get the best results.”

The unrelenting pursuits of Kym Huynh

“God hasn’t given me some special power
God hasn’t made me any different to the average person
Where I attribute my successes in life to 
Is my unrelenting pursuit of excellence in every single thing that I do.”
– Kym Huynh, Founder at WeTeachMe

Is being an entrepreneur something that is innate or does it develop over time? That may be subject to debate, but Kym Huynh, one of the founders of WeTeachMe, believes that one is born to it, and that is evidenced by patterns of behaviour over time. “I believe that you’re born an entrepreneur. I believe there are inherent traits and characteristics that consistently manifest over and over and over in one’s life. It’s only when you reflect that you connect the dots; that the behaviour is consistent with that of being an entrepreneur,” the young businessman professes.
