Tharren Kennedy, State Training Manager Queensland. ‘Training Academy attendees who visit the Queensland Training Academy can expect comprehensive theory and handson practical exposure to DuluxGroup products. Attendees will complete training courses with the upmost confidence, knowing which products to recommend to customers.’ Tharren brings a lifetime of paint experience and expertise to his role, having owned a paint shop for nine years. Throughout a 20-year association with DuluxGroup, Tharren has also, among other roles, managed the Dulux Preston Trade Centre in Victoria, and spent four years in Papua New Guinea as Dulux Technical Sales Manager and Regional Sales Manager.

What’s a day like in the life of

Kim Baker, Project Manager For Kim Baker, Project Manager at the Training Academy, no day is the same. Major projects in progress are part of her role, and at the moment she is developing and growing the new Learning Management System (LMS) for managing an individual’s training. Attendees can book in and learn online and get the same expert training as onsite. This also involves writing e-learning modules and troubleshooting the online content. But Kim’s role is not all about the desk. A scientist by profession in Chemistry, Kim worked for 13 years at the Dulux Innovation Centre in the Protective Coatings area. With this background, Kim brings knowledge and skills and enthusiasm to conducting training courses as well, both externally and internally. Attendees benefit by being able to walk away armed with expert and hands-on knowledge for all products. ‘Then they’re able to go back to their businesses and ask the right questions to then advise on the best product,’ says Kim. A typical day? As Kim says, ‘It’s all about implementing new processes and new products. Making sure we implement the project plans – see that they roll forward and end timely. And every day is like the first day of your job – you learn something new.’ 4


THE TRAINING ACADEMY IN NEW ZEALAND is literally courses on the move, with most courses mobilised to deliver practical, packed information ALL OVER NZ. We just love how attendees learn valuable information from the course demonstrations, says Bevan Tutty, the Training Academy Manager, New Zealand. This then translates into expert advice back to their customers. The attendees love the handson practical, and it is a very big part of our training, taking the products out of the cans. We have just finished the Colour Essentials Course, which again was well received. Attendees find for themselves that colour is quite exciting to talk about and it is what most customers are wanting to buy when they buy paint.

UltraDeck

With the Woodcare Exterior Course coming up we know that the most common question attendees will ask is how long the stain lasts. By staining a wooden planter box and getting a free packet of Yates seeds to go in it to take home, attendees can then give personalised advice to customers by explaining that they’ve used the product and, months later, it still looks great. It’s an exciting year for the NZ Training Academy as we further align with the Australian course contents with a NZ touch, although slight tweaking is necessary to reflect slightly different products in certain areas.

Get creative

WITH SCOTCHBLUE ™ PAINTER'S TAPE Inspire your customers’ DIY creativity and show them just how easy it is to refresh and update furniture or walls in their home with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape. This stunning piece of striking line work featured here adds drama and movement wherever it is placed. Against a plain backdrop it has impact and will complement any style. This season’s spring colour trends include bold dramatic colours in geometric lines, and striking line work is perfectly on-trend.

SIMPLE STEPS TO GREAT MASKING:

3M

1 2

CHOOSE THE RIGHT TAPE Make sure you’re using the best ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape for the job. PREP THE SURFACE Clean the surface, and make sure it is dry and dust-free. This will help the tape stick properly.

3

APPLY THE TAPE Pull tape off the roll a little bit at a time. Lay it onto surface depressions. Press down as you go. Avoid stretching the tape, as this can cause it to lift up or break.

4

SEAL THE EDGES Secure the tape by pressing the edge down with a putty knife or a 5-in-1 tool. If the surface is textured, seal the edge of the tape with the existing base colour of the wall. This will prevent the new paint colour from seeping under the tape.

5

REMOVAL Remove the tape at a 45-degree angle, and at a moderate speed. Just pull the tape back on itself. If adhesive sticks to the surface, try a 90-degree angle. If paint is pulling up with the tape, try scoring the edge of the tape with a razor blade before pulling further.

Nothing changes a room or a favourite piece of furniture like a fresh coat of paint. ScotchBlue Painter’s Tapes are great for use on walls, cabinets, wood floors and freshly painted surfaces (24 hours old). It removes cleanly with no surface damage. This spring, create a whole new interior look using ScotchBlue Painter’s Tapes – an easy DIY project!

Bree Leech, Creative Consultant and Stylist for Dulux, harnesses the art of mixing old and new as well as referencing design eras, so your customers can achieve this trend at home. Pink has become an interior staple this year. Lean towards mauve, pair it with clashing colour and non-conventional furniture pieces to give it an edge. Energise the space with striking graphic features such as simple lines and shapes that reflect retro influences from the post-modern era. White keeps the look fresh and provides a reference point for the colour combinations. Don’t embellish too much. The layers in this look are created with clean lines, shapes and colour.

Help your customers start their very

OWN EDIBLE BALCONY GARDEN! It’s surprising how much food can be grown in small spaces, and with these four easy steps from Yates, your customers can enjoy Spring-fresh vegies, herbs and fruit.

STEP 1: PLANT your new edible garden into Yates® Tuscan Pots and Yates® Potting Mix with Dynamic Lifter Yates Potting Mix with Yates Dynamic Lifter is rich in composted organics and has Yates Dynamic Lifter Organic fertiliser mixed in. It also feeds plants with slow-release nutrients from blood and bone, seaweed and fishmeal.

STEP 2: FEED your new garden with Yates® Thrive® Natural Liquid Plant Food after the seeds are established.

STEP 3: PROTECT your garden from aphids with Yates® Nature’s Way® Vegie & Herb Spray.

Liquid fertilisers such as Yates Thrive Natural are ideal for pots as they can easily be applied using a watering can. Specially formulated, they contain fish blood and bone and seaweed which are natural growth boosters plus additional fast-acting nutrients.

Stop aphids from feasting on the new edible garden by spraying with Yates Nature’s Way Vegie & Herb Spray. It is certified organic and has no withholding period so your customers can simply wash and eat their produce after spraying.

STEP 4: CONTROL leaf eating caterpillars with Yates® Success™ Ultra. Caterpillars chew through plants leaving you nothing to harvest. Yates Success Ultra is a safe way to control leaf-eating caterpillars on home grown produce. Remember to spray both sides of the leaves when caterpillars or their damage appear.

Yates Tuscan Pots are ideal for balcony gardens. They are Australian made, lightweight and have lots of holes for good drainage Picking the right pot: • Smaller-sized pots are ideal for herbs and vegies • Bigger pots can be used for dwarf citrus and other fruit to accommodate large root growth • Hanging baskets are ideal for running plants such mint and strawberries.

This activity is available for your store together with POS and training support. To find out more talk to your Yates Sales Representative.
