Did you have a good Christmas? I hope it was all you wished for. Despite my loving partner gifting me his man flu I had a wonderful time, full of good food, great company and an array of cold and flu remedies! 

My other half has always been a generous and thoughtful gift buyer, and yet again, he didn’t disappoint! 

One of the parcels under the tree was something I’d coveted since they first appeared on the market – a Dyson hairdryer. 


Some people will understand my excitement, others will think my other half has taken leave of his senses, and I understand that. I can remember standing in John Lewis after they very first appeared in the shops, cradling the hairdryer like a newborn, whilst repeatedly muttering the mantra of “how can I justify £300 for a hairdryer”. 

Fast forward to Christmas 2018, and once again I’m holding a Dyson hairdryer, and this time it’s mine!!!!

So why? Why bother? It’s just hair isn’t it? 

Well obviously it’s just hair, but for more years than I care to remember, I have waged war upon my natural curls and kinks, so anything that helps me achieve the outcome I want is worth the investment and the wait. 

Funnily enough, it’s a similar ethos to one we hold dear at The Chrysalis Crew. If you’re looking for coaching and development then you can easily and inexpensively buy knowledge from Amazon, and that might well just the job done for you. 

Dyson invested $71 million and 4 years to develop the Supersonic Hairdryer, and for me, that was time and money well spent. 

The Chrysalis Crew founder Kelly Swingler continually invests in her own learning and development in order to deliver her own version of ‘supersonic’ coaching to her clients. 

Dyson is challenging the way we approach haircare, through science and technology.

Kelly and The Chrysalis Crew are ripping up the rule book, and changing the world of work because it’s time for something new.
