Jo Allen is an award-winning style and image consultant, having trained with Europe’s leading image consultancy Colour Me Beautiful, and is currently a Director of the Federation of Image Professionals International (FIPI). She is also training to become a Fashion Feng Shui® licensed facilitator.
Her work includes giving advice to individuals and groups, in-store promotional and training work for retail businesses, as well as talks and presentations to business, clubs and networking groups. She has been a contributor to BBC Radio Norfolk and had articles published in the Eastern Daily Press, EDP Norfolk magazine, ‘Coastal’ magazine, KL magazine, ‘Take One’ magazine and ‘Best of Norfolk’.

Prior to training as a style and image consultant, Jo spent several years working as a Senior PA/Secretary in both the private and public sector. Having completed a Business Studies degree in 1997 as a ‘mature’ student(!), she spent some time looking for the right business opportunity and has never looked back on her decision to retrain as an image consultant. She is also a farmer’s wife and mother of two teenagers, so brings a wealth of different experience to the advice she can offer to clients in her image consultancy role.
