Glen Duckett

Glen Duckett is a social entrepreneur using youth training as the means to run a successful number of licenced outlets, including the multi award-winning Eagle and Child inn, Ramsbottom, Lancashire. The pub was named John Smith’s Pub of the Year 2017 in the Great British Pub Awards and was boarded up when Glen took over in 2011 at the height of the recession. Pubs have always been at the heart of the local community, so Glen’s interest in regeneration and supporting young people to become economically active is an interesting model for running a pub business in a modern, challenging market place whilst delivering a high quality customer experience.
