You might have already heard of the British Beauty Council and their drive to have the true worth of the beauty industry fully recognised. We recently met with one of the founders, Mille Kendal, to discuss how we can support each other. As we know our sector makes a significant contribution to the British economy, we were the only industry that actually grew during the last recession. While the group are focusing on the three pillars of reputation, education and innovation, at BABTAC and CIBTAC we are looking to help the council where relevant and support their work with our extensive knowledge and experience of the beauty industry.

The judges will now be looking at the applications, ready for us to announce the finalists at the end of May and the winners at our Awards Ceremony in September.
