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!

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, as well as answering all the questions about the Forum the rest of us know nothing about!

Events

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!

Marketing & Communications

Obsessed with fluffy dogs, Amy looks after the Forum's marketing and communications. No two days are the same, so when she isn't posting on social media, she can be found either creating newsletters, drafting press releases, or helping out with the events!
