If you inspire, empower and motivate a team as a successful shop manager, this is the category for you. New to the 2024 Modern Barber Awards, happening on Sunday 23 June 2024, this category celebrates the managers making a difference.
Who Can Enter?
You must have been a manager for at least two full years to qualify for this category.
How to Enter
Tell us about your strengths and skills as a manager, share how you’ve had an impact on the success of the business and list the ways you stay involved in the industry, whether that be taking part in shows, seminars and competitions, industry bodies you are a member of, or any other activities that show your ongoing commitment to professional and creative growth. “Provide anecdotal and numerical evidence. Lots of examples and evidence please!” advises Lizzi Brady, Head of Awards Management at the Professional Beauty Group.
If you feel you have what it takes to win in this highly competitive category, there is still time to impress our judges with your leadership skills by entering Manager at the Modern Barber Awards 2024 — entries are open until 16 February 2024.
There are so many ways that entering industry awards can benefit your career, they can be a real helping hand to meet your personal goals. “I just wanted to challenge myself and push myself forward, to be the best I can possibly be. I’m over the moon,” as Yasemin Hassan, winner of Best Apprentice at the 2023 Modern Barber Awards, told us.
