We are delighted to continue the Jeremy Allen Award, now in its 5th year, in partnership with Poppleston Allen Solicitors.
This award is open to anyone working in licensing and related fields and seeks to recognise and award exceptional practitioners. Crucially, this award is by 3rd party nomination, which in itself is a tribute to the nominee in that they have been put forward by colleagues in recognition and out of respect to their professionalism and achievements.
Nominations for the 2015 award are invited by 3rd parties by no later than 11th September 2015. The criteria are available via the link below and we look forward to receiving nominations from you. Please email nominations to email@example.com and confirm that the nominee is aware and happy to be put forward.

See quotes below from recent training provided by Jim Hunter, IoL Training & Qualifications Officer.
'As Chair of Manchester's Licensing Committee I wanted to ensure that new Cllrs, Officers and Committee Members were all aware of Licensing rules and regulation. Jim Hunter provided 3 different training courses over two days to very different audiences. The interactive nature in which the training was delivered meant that all attendees found the courses really useful. The feedback forms were excellent not only in relation to the knowledge gained but also that people had really enjoyed the training sessions, a real success - Thank you!' Cllr Hitchen, Chairman Manchester City Council.
'It is so easy to take a blinkered view and not look beyond the policies and issues in your own authority. What I found most useful about the day was not only being able to learn from the good practice at other councils but also learn from their mistakes, from someone who clearly has the current, relevant, facts at his fingertips.' Chair, Oxford Licensing Committee.
