Our Team

We've been called many things, some of them even nice, but if you want to find out a little more about the people behind the scenes at the Forum, take a look below:

Gillian Marshall

Gillian Marshall

Chief Executive

As leader of the Forum, Gillian keeps the team heading in the right direction. Not only does she force feed us all with chocolate and sweets, but she leads by example, working with our board to keep us moving forward.

Elaine Stroud

Elaine Stroud

Finance

Our number crunching fitness fanatic, when Elaine isn't cycling, running or swimming her way around the North East she's balancing our books, keeping us all in check and making sure we know what we can - and most importantly can't - spend!

Steve Gibson

Marketing & Events

Often fuelled only by crisps and whatever food has been left lying around the office, Steve looks after our marketing and communications when he isn't searching for new event speakers. He also has just a 'little' bit of OCD, especially when it comes to straight lines, consistency and speling ;-)

Michael Dixon

Membership & Mentoring

Our team's longest-serving member, Michael's been matching entrepreneurs with mentors for longer than he cares to remember. All that knowledge doesn't go to waste though as he makes sure we keep learning from our past, aw well as answering all the questions about the Forum the rest of us know nothing about!

Events & EA to the CEO

Super organised and efficient, Stacey loves the detail. Not only does she run our events smoothly and hitch-free, she also makes sure we all know where we should be and have everything we need when we get there. Did we mention that she makes the best birthday cakes in the world too!
