BABTAC Beauty Broadcasts

BABTAC Beauty Broadcasts

Our BABTAC Beauty Broadcasts series that launched at the end of 2023 continue to inform and inspire beauty professionals.

Over the coming months we will continue discussions with industry leaders, experts and trusted suppliers to find out the latest on relevant topics impacting therapists and salon owners, helping them to grow and develop their business and learn more. These broadcasts are free to members and all video links and relevant resources will be uploaded onto our member's only forum after each live broadcast has taken place. Non members are more than welcome to join for the live broadcasts for a small fee.

BABTAC have long advocated that our members ensure they continue to upskill and remain informed on all aspects critical to maintaining the highest levels of professionalism.  Fit for purpose Continual Professional Development (CPD) is an effective way to bolster your business and stay ahead in a rapidly evolving industry. CPD should not however only be limited to skills training but rather ensure you remain current in every aspect of your business. Our broadcasts cover a range of pertinent topics that will benefit both your wellbeing, that of your clients as well as your business as a whole. We are aware that our members are very busy and scheduling in time for CPD can be challenging, so we have made provision for all broadcasts to be recorded and available after each one in the Beauty Broadcast Tab of the Member's Lounge (you will need to be logged in to access this). We do however encourage you to join us live if possible so you are able to ask questions directly and secure information relevant to you and your business.

We launched this series with our first broadcast on Wednesday the 25th October 2023.
