TWO Scottish surveyors have been shortlisted for the Mentor of the Year accolade in the RICS Matrics Young Surveyor of the Year 2019 awards.
Gemma Begbie, a senior project manager with Turner+Townsend based in Edinburgh, and Harry Browne, a director with HD Property Consultants based in Glasgow, join eight other finalists from around the UK, who have been recognised for making a significant contribution towards mentoring young talent.
Harry’s nomination said that after many years in the construction industry, he will leave behind a ‘lasting legacy to all who worked with him, of professionalism, trustworthiness, empathy and leadership’.
Gemma’s nomination said that she is a ‘true inspiration and her passion for developing others and her willingness to share skills and expertise makes her a well-respected surveyor and role model’.
Winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on 28 November.
