Born in the North but now living in the South and having worked all over the UK, as well as throughout the world, Alison is globally recognised as one of the most experienced, qualified professionals in the industry.
Alison recently won an ‘Amazing Woman’ Award from Woman & Home for her contribution to business. She is hugely respected and trusted by brand owners, CEOs, PRs, marketeers and, most importantly, her core fan base of real women at home. During her 30 years’ industry experience, Alison trained as a beauty therapist, counting A-listers and Royalty among her clientele, before becoming the UK’s youngest ever Head of Training at Clarins.
She then worked extensively training and consulting until, head hunted by QVC, she was tasked with sourcing and bringing brands to the fledgling channel. Alison’s expert eye and expertise helped turn brands such as Molton Brown and Liz Earle into household names. She was also responsible for nurturing smaller, more ‘niche’ brands like Elemis to their huge success today.
