What Lancashire Business View said about our Sales and Marketing Director Niamh Allen at IoT Horizon, and why young people in the county should be celebrated.
In the May/June 2022 issue of the Lancashire Business View magazine, IoT Horizon made its second feature! This was through a piece written about our Director Niamh Allen. Niamh received an anonymous nomination for influential newcomers under the age of 36, to celebrate some of the youngest entrepreneurs in the county. The article highlights just 15 business people aged under 36 that are leading the way across the county. The list combines those nominated by the Lancashire business community and others put forward by Lancashire Business View and partners. A long list was reviewed by a panel of judges before the final 15 were selected as representative of great young business people that are making their mark.
The purpose of the article and nominations was to demonstrate how much of an impact young people are making in the business world and that the spirit of enterprise remains strong in Lancashire. Their stories can be used to inspire young people still in education across the county. Therefore, it’s important to get their stories published in order to encourage Lancashire businesses to continue to invest in young people.
The young people nominated have been described as ‘difference makers’ whose impact on their businesses, workplaces, and beyond should be celebrated. Lancashire Business View had this to say about our Sales and Marketing Director Niamh Allen:
“Niamh has helped raise the profile of Rawtenstall- based IoT Horizon, an ‘Internet of Things’ and Digital Transformation specialist. She joined as Sales Manager and was rewarded for her results with promotion to Director just a year later. She champions the county’s digital sector more broadly, having presented at the Lancashire innovation festival, and is also a supporter of women in the tech sector. Perhaps more impressive still is that all these professional accomplishments were achieved side by side with her academic work while completing her business management degree at UCLan.”
