2017 – The Year That Was

We are so proud of all of our talent for all of the hard work and efforts they have gone to this year! Here are some of our favourite achievements of 2017 and a recap on the crazy year that was. 

Telstra Perth Fashion Fesitval 2017

Runway Ready

In September Bettina Management had the honour of attending the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, one of Australia’s premier fashion events. Bettina Management hosted a model search competition and in just 2 days received almost 500 entries. From that we narrowed it down to 20 kids for the runway finale and from that we crowned our 2 winners – Josh, 13, and Jamilla, 7.

 

 

The boy who did it all

Mack, at only 1 year old is taking the child modelling industry by storm!  Just this year Mack has booked shoots and TVC’s for Pumpkin Patch, Seed, Bonds, Mitsubishi and Myer.

 

 

 

International Jetsetters

Some of our Talent has been lucky enough to shoot overseas this year. Phoebe was flown to Bali for a Fila Kids shoot, and Brodie went to Malaysia for a Vicks shoot. These kids along with a parent had all flights and accommodation paid for, spending money for food while they were there and they were paid for the work they did whilst they were there too!

 

Lead Role Scorer

One of Bettina Management’s very own, Celine, landed a lead role on a new TV Series on ABC Me, Mustangs. Mustangs was a comedy-drama about girls abandoning the sidelines and starting their very own all female team, their local club’s first. The girls juggle their new soccer commitments with the rollercoaster that is teenage life. The whole series is now available online to watch on ABC’s iview.

 

 

 

Bettina Families Division

This year there has been a serious increase in demand for families, siblings, cousins and even grandparents. So we have decided to open up a whole new families division, currently complimentary to all families who already have a child on books. Recently we have had real families booked for several of our clients including Cengage Learning, Hippy Australia, Britax, Elevit, Bank of Melbourne, Johnson & Johnson, Target Australia and more.

 

Global News Sensation 

Shilah is one of only about a hundred people in the world known to have Uncombable Hair Syndrome (UHS). This is an extremely rare genetic disease, characterised by straw, white or silver blonde frizzy hair that cannot be combed flat. Over the past few months Shilah has become the latest global news sensation, with articles in the Daily Mail, Mirror, Pop Sugar, Global News and made one of the cover stories for That’s Life Magazine. To top it off Shilah and her Mum were on Plus 7’s The Morning Show! Shilah has completely embraced her unique look and enjoys being an inspiration to others to be proud of who they are.

25 years of Bettina Management

Bettina Management celebrated their 25th birthday this year! To celebrate being a quarter of a century old, we visited our clients in all states and brought along cupcakes and goodies with us. We received lots of thank you notes from our clients who thought it was a lovely gesture. We also held a competition for all new applicants of our birth month that gave them the chance to win a $250 Target Voucher. A little celebration at the Bettina Management HQ was held as well, with some cupcakes of our own and party poppers!

This year has been one full of excitement and chaos! We can’t wait to do it all again next year.

2016; The Year That Was

We’re all about celebrating successes here at Bettina Management! So we thought we would recap the crazy, fun, whirlwind year that was 2016, and some of the amazing things our little stars got up to in the last 12 months.

 

img_4026WALKING FOR FASHION ROYALTY

Telstra Perth Fashion Festival is one of the biggest nights on west coast for fashion. It was a Bettina first when we got a request for our very own kids to walk for luxury children’s fashion label – Mischka Aoki, who’s gowns have been worn by many mini-superstars, including none-other than Beyonce’s daughter, Blue-Ivy.

Three lucky girls made it through the casting process and were awarded a spot on the runway for the big night. Keara, Emily and Scarlett did us all proud and worked the runway like they had been doing it their whole lives! With our Perth Talent Coordinator, Gloria, cheering them on from the sidelines it really was a night to remember!

Miss Allegra is the hardest working 6 year old we know! She has been working away with our friends at Wellcom Worldwide shooting for Target Australia’s catalogues for the past year, but she always kept her eyes on her big goal – a spot in a TV commercial.

Well one day in February we got a very exciting request, a casting for Allegra for a Target Easter TVC! Allegra and her mum Chelsea popped along to see our friends at Casting Sugar, and then we patiently waited for the good news. Thankfully the good news came and Allegra’s dream came true!

We asked her mum Chelsea what this year has been like for them, here’s what she had to say:

“Allegra has loved working with Target this year, as well as a few other campaigns she booked throughout the year. It can always be a challenge to juggle school and other commitments but Allegra really enjoys working on set with the whole team and it is always great to see the final product. She was also lucky enough to achieve one of her goals in booking a TV commercial, it is always wonderful to see your children work hard and be rewarded. She was over the moon that her dream became a reality and it was an overall amazing experience for the whole family!”

JET SETTERS

 

12841239_996869440392306_5869253557699833700_oWho doesn’t love an all-expenses paid holiday! While it wasn’t all lounging by the pool for our talent this year, our kids had some amazing experiences shooting interstate and even internationally for some incredible global brands.

Matching talent can be a casting director’s most difficult job, but sometimes the stars align and everything just falls into place. One of those moments was when a Westfield TVC brief came through for a child version of Australian model, Yaya Deng, and we knew we had the perfect girl. The only catch was – she wasn’t in the right state! But after weeks of casting and no luck, we suggested our girl Achok, and as we already knew, she was perfect! Achok and her mum were flown to Sydney for a few days of shooting, and the end result was simply incredible.
Isn’t it every little girl’s dream to model for the one and only Barbie brand? Well, one little girl’s dream came true when she was cast as the Australian representative in the Barbie – “You Can Be Anything” campaign, and this was just image5the start of the good news. Not only would our Maya be part of a truly special campaign, celebrating young girls aspirations and dreams, but she would also be flying with her family to Bangkok, Thailand to film the campaign! Maya travelled with her whole family and our own Talent Coordinator, Jess for a jam-packed week in Bangkok.

The final product speaks for itself, there were certainly a few tears in the Bettina office when we saw this for the first time.

 

 

FAMILIES WHO WORK TOGETHER, STAY TOGETHER


screen-shot-2016-08-24-at-12-09-33-pm
This year was the year for families. We had so many kids and parents working on set, killing it as
a family unit. Our clients are always looking for real people and genuine connection and what better than a real family to produce this.

The Gerritsen family, originally from Holland, worked for multiple clients and brands, including Australian Country Spinners, Britax Australia, Target and Cengage Learning. They are truly a superstar family; workable, fun, creative and charismatic, all the qualities that we look for and our clients love!
We also had several families booked for regular clients such as Cengage Learning and Britax. A big thank you to all the parents who stepped up to the plate and participated, we know it wasn’t exactly what you signed up for, but you smashed it nonetheless.

 

AGENCY NEWS

img_3227Along with the successes of our wonderful talent, we also made a couple of other leaps and moved premises in two states. After nearly a decade in Alexandria our Sydney agency turned over a new leaf and shifted premises to lovely Chippendale, whilst our Melbourne agency & Bettina HQ moved from Docklands to Southbank; settling into a beautiful building in the creative hub of Melbourne, with many other neighbouring creative agencies, production houses and studios.

What a wonderful year it was. Thank you to the tireless efforts of our Bettina team, our talent, the parents that make it all happen and our clients who have given our talent some amazing opportunities throughout the year. 2017 is shaping up to be even bigger and better! 

The Bettina Team XX

Bettina Stories; A Parent’s Perspective

Kellie is the mother of two lovely twin girls, Chelsea and Chloe, who have been with us for 6 years! She has spent years driving them to and from castings and jobs, helping them in and out of wardrobe changes, coordinating school, extra curricular activities and bookings for Target, Kmart and many more!

We sat down with her recently to have a chat about her perspective on having her kids working in the industry and any tips she has for parents who are just starting out!

 

What did you look for when deciding on an agency for the girls?

We were looking for somewhere that was trustworthy and somewhere where the children could have fun and be respected.

 

How long have the girls been working in the industry? Why have you have kept for this length of time?

The girls have been working for about 6 years, we kept going because they’ve had constant jobs and work along the way so while that’s happening and they’re having fun we thought why not keep going and enjoy the ride.

 

What do you find challenging about having your children working in the industry?

Sometimes it’s a little bit difficult having twins, especially because they’re not identical. Sometimes one twin might get more work than the other, so it is a juggling act that we deal with. But we’re pretty realistic with that, and we understand that its the client who’s picking the talent.

 

What is it like seeing your children on TV and in print?

It definitely makes me proud to see my girls in campaigns on TV or in print. But the fact that they’re enjoying it and having fun is the best part.

 

In what ways has working in the industry impacted Chelsea and Chloe in their life?

Working in the industry has had a positive impact on their lives, its helped them become more confident, everywhere they go they have a smile!

 

Do you have any tips for new parents entering the industry?

Keep it simple! Be on time, listen to instructions and most of all have fun.

Bettina Stories; Achok Majak

It’s not every day that you get to fly to another city and shoot along side an international model. But our Achok was lucky enough to have this experience of a life time!

They casted across three cities to find the perfect girl for this role, and they found that perfect girl in Achok! Achok was cast to play the role of a young Yaya Deng in the Westfield ‘Own Your Story’ campaign. Achok and her mum were flown to Sydney for the shoot and Achok’s images were plastered on billboards across Australia.

We sat down with Achok and her mum recently to have a chat about their experience.

Age: 10yrs

Signed: 2015

Clients: Westfield

 

Achok

westfieldHow long have you been with the agency?

I have been with the agency since November last year

What was your first job?

My first job was for the Westfield ‘Own Your Story’ TV commercial

What was it like going to your first casting?

I was excited for my first casting, it was a lot of fun.

How did you feel when you were told that you booked the job?

I was happy – and excited that I also got to go to Sydney with my mum.

What was the best part of working on set?

The best part about working on set was getting to meet everyone, especially Yaya Deng, she gave me a lot of advice and motivated me not to be nervous or shy.

What things did you find difficult or challenging on set?

It was a long day but it was fun so it wasn’t too bad.

 

Nyanak

Why did you decide to join Achok up to an agency?

She always wanted to model, so last year we decided to give it a go.

What was it like taking her to her first casting?

I was nervous but I was very excited for her.

What is the best part of seeing Achok working on set?

I always thought she was a shy girl, but when she got on set she wasn’t shy at all. So that was the best part, seeing a side in her I hadn’t seen before.

Castings 101

Before

We are generally given very little notice for castings/auditions. Clients will usually request talent to come in the next day or even the same day! If your child is selected by a client for a casting, we will be in contact straight away. Please be sure to respond as soon as you can, we often require confirmation by the end of the day.

 

  1. We will EMAIL you with all of the details of the casting including what the campaign is for, what role they are auditioning for as well as the date, time, location and any additional requirements such as wardrobe or scripts. Please be sure to read all details and attachments carefully before confirming whether your child will be attending the casting. It is particularly important to check ALL dates for the casting/audition, callbacks, wardrobe fittings and shoot to make sure your child will be available if they progress to the next stage.
  2. We will follow up with a TEXT MESSAGE straight away to prompt you to check your email.

Please check your email and respond back to let us know whether or not your child will be attending.

  1. If we don’t hear from you, we will follow up with ONE MORE TEXT MESSAGE and/or a PHONE CALL. We must inform the client whether or not the requested talent will be attending, so please reply either way. Even if you can’t attend.

Our Castings Department have dedicated text message phone numbers so be sure to save them in your phone so you can easily identify when we are trying to get in touch with you.

*Please note these numbers are a web-sms service so cannot receive calls, please only use them to reply to casting requests. Any other enquiries must be directed to the general agency phone number 1300 888 611. Our castings department is an extremely busy place so it is important to keep communication streamlined.

Please treat all casting correspondence with a sense of urgency. We need to get back to the client as soon as possible with the confirmed talent. If we do not hear back from you within the required time frame we will have to let the client know you are unavailable. Unless we hear back from you within the required timeframe we will have to let the client know you are unavailable. Generally, casting times are not flexible but if you are unable to make the requested time please let us know ASAP and we will contact the client to see if a time change is possible. Please note that the date of the casting cannot be changed.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you read all relevant information about the casting – the email casting notification contains all the information you need for your casting. We coordinate hundreds of castings every month so we know exactly what you need to know and provide all of this to you upfront. If you haven’t received the casting notification email for any reason, it is your responsibility to let us know. It is also not a plausible excuse if you fail to attend the casting based on the premise that you didn’t receive the details.

If you cannot make a casting due to illness/ changed circumstances you will need to let us know immediately. Your child will not be penalised for this as we understand these things happen, but it is best if we can let the client know ASAP in case they would like to see another talent in their place.

Make sure you take note of any wardrobe requirements if there is nothing specific then neat/casual clothes is perfect.

Please refresh your memory with our blog post on First Casting Jitters to help with preparation once your casting has been confirmed! You can also read the Castings Guide attached to your casting notification email and watch our Youtube videos for more tips and tricks.

 

During

We have looked at what happens before a casting, now let’s look at what happens during the casting.

We have gathered a few important guidelines for you to follow so you can maximise your chances of making the best impression possible.

Our Regional Casting Manager, Brodie, shares her wise words and important tips:

‘Punctuality is key. You have to be careful not to be too early, but you most certainly can’t be late! Five minutes is early enough, there will usually be lots of kids attending the casting so the less crowded the better. Be prepared with scripts for acting auditions and be sure to practice prior to the casting and again in the car on the way there.

If your child is at an appropriate age (around school age, 6-7 years old) encourage them to go into the casting room alone when they are called. This will display confidence, leadership and the capability to be separated from Mum or Dad for a short period of time and will give the client assurance that if picked for the job, they will be happy and at ease to do it. In saying that, by all means if you are not comfortable with your child going in on their own to read their script or meet with the client, do go in but be sure to try and stand at the back of the room so as not to probe your child with their lines.

One of the other things I love the kids to do is to introduce themselves. A simple ‘Hello, my name is _____ and I’m from Bettina Management’ again demonstrates a high level of confidence with just a simple sentence. It is also really nice to thank the casting directors when you leave, try to remember to call them by their name (especially for the older kids).

Lastly, stay away from the temptation of school uniform as much as possible! If your casting is after school, take a spare change of clothes and get changed in the car beforehand – neat and casual is a must, unless specified otherwise when relaying casting details. Even if you have to give your shoes a bit of a scrub and your hair a bit of a brush, your neat appearance will make all the difference!’

Thanks Brodie!

So, let’s summarise:

– Punctuality

– Manners

– Confidence/Preparation

– Neat appearance

Also bear in mind, your presence at a casting will reflect on us as an agency and we have a lot of trust in our talent to help us maintain our strong ties with our clients. If you have any questions at all pertaining to a casting, we are always happy to help. Remember, preparation and punctuality is key!

Watch this video to get an idea of what a typical modelling casting will look like:

 

After

Waiting

Once the excitement of the casting is over, a waiting period will commence. Patience is a virtue – that we need to have too! Clients can sometimes take days or weeks to call back to select the children they would like to use, or sometimes they simply call back straight after the casting. Unfortunately there are no designated time frames where we can say ‘it always takes 3 days’ or ‘you will definitely hear tomorrow’, because all production companies and clients have their own time schedule to work towards, and these vary. Some are pressed for time to meet deadlines, whilst others are planning well in advance. However, there are times when a client will let us know when the shoot is scheduled for, and in these cases we have a rough idea as to when we would be expecting a call. Especially if we have had to check your availability for shoot dates prior to attending the casting!

Remember, we will only be in contact if your child is selected to proceed to a callback or booking. Unfortunately, no news is not good news in this industry.

 

Why we can’t promise to call you

Castings are an ongoing process, and we often have up to 20 campaigns on the go at any one time, we have many children attending castings and unfortunately we do not physically have the manpower in the office to call each and every parent to let them know that their child was not successful. Also, in light of the above detailed ‘waiting’ period – we do not jump the gun if we haven’t heard back from the client in a week and assume that your child hasn’t been selected, so we don’t call to tell you ‘we still haven’t heard anything yet.’ Rest assured, if your child is selected you will be the first to know!

 

On not getting the job

Don’t be disheartened, not everyone can get the job! That’s the whole point of a casting – to meet everyone in person and assess who would be the best fit for the product or campaign. There is a lot more that goes into it than what meets the eye! Attending a casting or audition will help you to gain practice and an understanding of how everything works while building on your experience.

 

On getting the job

Congratulations! Whether it be your first job or your seventh, that rush of excitement is still the same. Be proud of yourself! You must have impressed the client on the day and can now relax and look forward to being featured in a catalogue or commercial – and get paid for it!

Booking process

The booking process will begin as soon as we have the confirmed date of the shoot. Depending on which state you live in and what age your child is, will depend on the relevant forms you will need to fill out. The day before a shoot we receive a ‘call sheet’ which will outline the times and location for the following day. More often than not, this will arrive in our inbox closer to the end of the day than the start! We do contact you as soon as we have the information, we will never purposely keep you in the dark with information you need to know so hang in there!

 

And when all the hard work is over….?

A Fool Proof Guide to AT2

A Fool Proof Guide to AT2

Part 1 of 3

The Basics

AT2 is an integral part of the casting/entertainment industry and Bettina membership alike.
This is the start of a 3 part series to guide you through all the ins and outs of AT2.
Let’s start with the basics, sometimes even the initial step of logging in can seem harder than necessary if you haven’t received your log in details. Let’s clarify why – firstly, you should receive an email sent to you directly by AT2 with your log in details. Depending on individual privacy settings, this email could automatically be delivered to the ‘Junk’ folder due to the fact that the email is not from an individual person, but rather ‘AT2’ as a name.
If you fail to receive this in accordance with the time frame set out by us initially, do call the office and we can organise for them to be delivered to you ASAP!
The link you need to go to is – https://app.at2casting.com/au/login
Once here, enter your log in details, then you will see the screen below (surname has been omitted for privacy):
Let’s take a closer look at the top row of tabs:
The most important tabs you will need to use will be ‘My Profile’, ‘Brief Inbox’ and ‘Messages’.
The ‘My Profile’ tab is where you go to maintain all personal details about your child.
The ‘Brief Inbox’ tab is where you go to find any invitation to participate in unpaid work. When you click this tab you will then need to click the tab ‘iCast Briefs’ (as shown below):
The reason that you don’t stay in the tab ‘Briefs from Agent’ is because we will never offer you or alert you to paid work or castings through AT2. Our first point of contact is a phone call, then text, then email.
Through ‘iCast Briefs’, you will receive notices and inbox messages from independent producers, boutique clothing labels, student films and more. IF you are interested in participating further you will need to coordinate all communication with them via the messaging system which can be accessed via the tab ‘Message.’
Check all communication regularly! Even missing out on something one or two days late can mean that the opportunity is no longer available… which is no fun.

Part 2 of 3


The Essentials

Now that we have The Basics covered, it’s time to take a deeper look at some other aspects of AT2.

Sizes

Updating your child’s clothing size in AT2 is highly important, this ensures that they are being submitted for the right jobs in their categories.  We won’t know it has changed unless you tell us! And we know how fast theses things can happen, kids grow.. all the time!
In order to change the clothing size click on the tab ‘Profile’ and then where the tab says ‘View | Edit’ press ‘Edit’. The screen should look like this:
To get to clothing size, scroll down! Look at the arrow below for where you need to change the shoe and clothing size:
It is also beneficial to call us and let us know too, so we can alter it on our internal database.
Photographs
With our package on AT2 – you have the option to upload 10 additional photographs of your choice.
Before we learn how to upload the images, let’s make sure they are in the right format first!
> It’s much easier if the image is formatted to a ‘JPEG.’ file If it is not already in a JPEG, go to the photograph where you have it stored and press ‘Save As.’ Underneath the ‘File Name’ there will be a drop down box for ‘Save as type’ as shown below. Simply make sure the ‘JPEG’ option is selected.
Now for the fun part. Follow the instructions to upload a photo:
1. Click the ‘Photos’ tab.
2. Where it says ‘View | Edit’, click ‘Edit’.
3. The screen will then look like this:

4. When you click ‘Add New Image’ this screen will pop up:

5. Click ‘Add Files’ and find the photograph/s you are wishing to upload. You are able to upload more than one at a time which is handy and saves time!

6. After the photo uploads, the next screen will show the images one by one and have a button that says ‘Auto Crop & Resize’ – click that button, then press ‘Submit & Finish’. All done!
NB. If you have wish to change the default picture at any time throughout the membership, please let us know first. Sometimes, if a parent puts up a photograph that is not suitable for our clients as a default without alerting us, we will not be able to submit the photograph forward to the client.
Similar to the extra photographs, even if not serving the purpose of a default photo per se, the photographs can and will still be looked at by clients and casting directors alike. Some photos that look great on the fridge may not be appropriate for AT2! They should still retain an element of professionalism, despite being taken at home for fun.
Below are a few examples of appropriate and inappropriate photos for AT2.
Here are some good examples:

In these gorgeous photos we can see the child’s face front on, we can see his unique features i.e. blue eyes, shape of face (nose, mouth) and also, with the first photo – a bit of personality!

Note the below photograph too:

It can be easy to simply stand your child in front of a wall in the house as naturally as possible and get them to show you a big smile. The clients need to see exactly what your child looks like in an everyday situation. We don’t encourage fanciness and frills, clients are searching for cute and happy kids.
Now for some inappropriate examples:

Despite the undoubted cuteness that radiates from each of the above photograph, things such as food, baths, not looking at the camera, being too far away and hiding the face with a hat are features that aren’t ideal to be presented to the client. Also, for the older kids self taken images ‘selfies’ aren’t necessarily appropriate either, but please check with one of the staff first.

We are always available should you require further assistance with AT2! You can email info@bettina.com.au with any images for us to check.

Part 3 of 3

The Nitty Gritty

This last section on our guide to AT2 will focus on the Video and Resume features that are available. The most commonly asked question about these features is ‘Are they necessary?’ There are certainly uses for both of them, regardless of experience. The more information the better!

Luckily with our AT2 package, the video function is accessible to us all. The video could contain a few things:
1. The most common video is a ‘Showreel’. A Showreel is a collection of featured work and is always requested in the adult acting world. If your child has a few TV commercials or featured work examples under their belt, collate the clips together to create a visual example of all recent jobs. If your child has completed one TV commercial (or video clip, featured in TV series, background of TV series, extra in film etc.) simply show a video of just that experience.
2. If your child hasn’t received any work, the video could be one of a dance concert, school concert, musical production performance or something similar that demonstrates skills and abilities.
3. With the absence of both of the above, it is acceptable and often helpful to upload a video of your child talking to the camera or playing/laughing/moving so that clients can visualise outside of the limits of a photo to gauge interaction skills.
Uploading a video is similar to uploading a photograph (please refer to Part 2). Simply go to the ‘Video’ tab > press ‘Edit’ > and upload your video.
Once it is uploaded – your child’s profile will look like this:
Sorcha has uploaded a video of her acting at home to display her skills:

And Dominic has uploaded a video of a Worksafe TV commercial he is featured in:

Let’s move onto the Resume section.

There are two types of resumes that you can use on the AT2 site – one is a generic PDF resume, and the other is a credit resume which means you can secure attachments of examples of work.

When you click the Resume tab this will appear:

 

PDF Resume:

Irrespective of whether your child has experience or not – it is still possible to have a resume should you so desire. For a child without any experience it can be helpful to simply fill out a resume detailing your child’s hobbies, interests and personality. Make sure that you include any extracurricular activities or achievements to date as well. For children that have had work, make sure that you put all of the jobs and dates in chronological order. You may also jot down the castings you’ve attended (even if you didn’t get the job!) because every bit of experience counts, and all castings contribute to confidence and as a stepping stone for the next one.

See below for an example of a PDF resume for Dominic detailing paid work:
Example of a PDF resume for Keshika complete with all skills, education and relevant experience:
A Credit Resume is a great way to show examples of work your child has completed to correlate with the written description. Click ‘Add Table Section’ to start. The below will pop up and this is where you enter the names of jobs:
So for example, you could put in: Target May 2013 or Australian Country Spinners 2010
On the right hand side is a little icon of an image – this is where you click to upload the Target image or the Australian Country Spinners image.
Once entered it should look like this:

This type of mini resume is probably ideal for parents who have lots of copies or images of printed work or links to videos of ads. It is a quick, concise way to get an overview of all experiences. For other children, a simple PDF resume will suffice.

If you are heading away or your child will be unavailable for castings/jobs for a period of time, you can set their ‘away dates’ on their profile. This way we know you are away and won’t put your child forward for briefs during this period. All you need to do is log into your child’s profile and select “edit” under the “Profile” section. You can then select the dates that your child will be away, set to “Public” and don’t forget to click save.

screen-shot-2016-12-02-at-12-19-58-pm

Last important things to note:
There is a tab for Skills that has an array of tick boxes from accents to dance experience to singing to sporting ability. Whilst we do have on our file most of your child’s abilities, these do change or exceed (for example beginner, intermediate, advanced) – be sure to edit when needed. This will make it easier for clients when they are searching for specific abilities on the AT2 database.
Finally, of course any help needed with any aspect of AT2 can be directed to our Bettina HQ to email address: info@bettina.com.au. We want everyone to make the most of their AT2 membership. Hopefully this 3 part series has been able to help some of you to gain a stronger grasp of the AT2 site.
Remember, if you have any ideas or questions that you would like to see in further posts please email: info@bettina.com.au
