Martin Allpress, Business Advisor at London Small Business Centre
Martin fell into accountancy by chance. Initially he started as a trainee but was then asked to work in insolvency, an area which he knew nothing about. A role which he was initially unsure of he ended up loving, and the skills and knowledge he acquired over those 30 years has become priceless; by working with businesses that were winding down or failing naturally lead him to knowing the reasons for those failures and where these big companies were going wrong.
As a business adviser at London Small Business Centre, Martin helps entrepreneurs translate their hopes and aspirations into something tangible and profitable. He teaches that success is about starting from nothing and running a business, paying your bills, your taxes and staying on top of it all – it’s that process that produces success, and if you can do this for a number of years – you have created your own success.
