Mick Owen

I am a born-again social entrepreneur, having spent the majority of my working life in either the commercial sector or public authorities and agencies. I moved to Glossop in Derbyshire in winter 1983 to work in the local authority leisure centre and swore I’d be gone within 2 years. But I’m still there and still working in the sport and leisure industry. I am a lover of aphorisms with my current favourite being “Don’t ask for permission, but be prepared to ask for forgiveness”.
