Since moving to the UK from France, Valerie has dedicated over 25 years to working her way up the corporate ladder in the spa and beauty industry. Throughout her career Valerie has worked with some of the world's leading brands and developed her skills across every aspect of running a business. Realizing early on she had a passion for sharing knowledge and a wealth of expertise built up over the years, Valerie went on to launch Delforge + Co Business Academy in 2016.

With Valerie at the helm, Delforge + Co Business Academy doesn’t just share knowledge. Delforge + Co goes one step further and encapsulates an individual's vision and dreams to create a specific operational strategy, setting their clients up on the path to success.

Recognising the operational aspects as “the heart of any business” Valerie soon made it her mission to help others achieve operational success. From helping her clients to make sound financial decisions to outlining all SOP’s (Standard Operating Procedures), she gives those in spa management the opportunity to spend more time being creative in meeting the demands of their business and employees.

Other aspects of spa and salon management that Valerie has expertise in include digital media marketing (DMM). Starting off as simply a hobby, she soon became fascinated with DMM and recognised its huge importance to any business, and so she went on to study Digital Marketing and Social Media Management. With this included in her repertoire of skills, Delforge + Co takes its clients businesses to the next level.

Valerie created Delforge + Co with the belief that anyone can run a successful business. Through her years of experience, there is no challenge Valerie has not faced. She will not only empower you to proceed on your own journey but she will support you by conducting monthly, quarterly and yearly targets that you will achieve together.
