The British Institute of Innkeeping (BII) is celebrating the memory of one of the pub industry’s leading figures with the creation of a new award to recognise excellence in training and staff development in the licensed trade.

The Jeremy Allen Award has been launched in conjunction with licensing specialist Poppleston Allen, in memory of the company’s founding partner who died suddenly in 2011.

Nominations are now being accepted and candidates will need to demonstrate an outstanding contribution to staff training and development as well as being able to highlight at least one new innovation in training that they have personally devised and implemented.

“I could not think of a more appropriate way for the BII, Poppleston Allen or the industry to honour Jeremy and his memory,” said Peter Thomas, chief executive of the BII. “This award is so apt because Jeremy was known for his dedication to others and his willingness to help, whether it was friends, colleagues, clients or serving the interests of the industry.”

Closing date for nominations is 31 January 2013 and the award will take place at the BII’s Annual Lunch in London on 14 May 2013 – when the Licensee of the Year will also be unveiled.
