Allen joined PBC in January 2015.
Micro Businesses are Allen's passion and he brings over 25 years of Local Enterprise Support experience.
Having spent some time working for some huge corporate businesses (Trust House Forte, Watney Mann and Truman Breweries) during early in his working career, he branched into the world of Self-Employment by buying his own Hotel in Oxfordshire in his early twenties. From that time onward small local business has been in Allen's blood and he strives to support everything small and local at every opportunity.
He is passionate about working in partnership and putting things back into his local community and about self-employment being a way to enable those with caring responsibilities to wrap the need to work around their lives.
