Meet the 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:

Elaine Stroud

Elaine Stroud

Chief Executive (Interim)

Elaine leads our team and loves nothing more than hearing the success stories of our incredible members. She’s passionate about the north east, so much so, that when she’s not meeting members, she’s probably out cycling, running or swimming her way around the region.  She might even persuade you to join her!

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 and Communications

Obsessed with fluffy dogs, Amy looks after the Forum's 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!

Membership and Mentoring

Our team's longest-serving member, Michael has been matching entrepreneurs with mentors for longer than he cares to remember. In his spare time he's a keen runner and will be found pounding the track, trails or tarmac most days of the week.
