Purdy Mentor Of The Year Kicks off
Professional painting tools manufacturer Purdy has announced the launch of Mentor of the Year for 2022. Created to recognise those who are inspiring the next generation of professional painters and decorators, Mentor of the Year nominations open on 1st June 2022.
The competition aims gives those learning the trade the chance to recognise the people that are having a positive influence on them and their development, whether they run their own business, manage or train decorators in a larger firm or lecture at a decorating college.
From the entries, a college lecturer and a professional painter and decorator will be selected as winners – and will receive £1,000 each, while those that nominate them will each win a new Purdy backpack filled with Purdy products. The two runners up will receive £500 each, with a range of Purdy products for their nominators.
The entries will be judged by Phil Warwick of CITB, Neil Ogilvie of the PDA and Andy Cummins of Purdy. The shortlisted nominees will then be invited to a virtual interview, where they can explain more about the skills that they are instilling in the next generation of professional painters and decorators.
Deadline for entries is 30th September 2022.
