For 35 years Nick Bish has worked for, contributed to and championed companies that operate pubs, clubs, bars and restaurants. After senior roles with Imperial Taverns and HH Finch in London he was originator and Chief Exec of the ALMR where he gained a matchless insight to the evolving industry – the new brands and the brilliant entrepreneurs leading the charge with their novel ideas and ever-improving professionalism.
In his own consultancy he works to support initiatives that underpin the industry’s reputation and above all to promote and champion professional development through the Ops Awards and the new WorkOut programme. He is also Chairman of Inn Places, the website and club that champions and supports the very best of selected pubs with rooms in the UK.
He is delighted and privileged to be a judge for the Publican Awards which not only celebrate winners but which also provide an annual benchmark of excellence that raises everyone’s game.
