20th Anniversary & New President

On Thursday 16 November 2017 The Enterprise Forum marked its 20th Anniversary at Number 10 Downing Street and announced its new President, The Rt Hon Sir Eric Pickles.

The Reception was an opportunity for members of the business community and Parliamentarians, that have supported The Enterprise Forum since its foundation in 1997, to celebrate the work The Enterprise Forum has done over the years in providing an independent setting for free and frank discussion to take place on business policy. Andrew Cumpsty, Chairman of The Enterprise Forum said: “This was an amazing way in which to mark the Enterprise Forum's 20th Anniversary. The Forum has worked tireless over the past decade to ensure that business and decision makers have the best possible dialogue. As a result of our work, we would hope that policy makers in Westminster and Brussels are best informed, so that they can make good decisions that truly benefit our country, jobs and enterprise.”

Lord Maclaurin of Knebworth, who has been President of The Enterprise Forum since its foundation, stepped down from his role and was thanked by the Chairman and the rest of the Board of Directors for his unwavering support over the years. Andrew Cumpsty, Chairman of The Enterprise Forum then announced the new President, The Rt Hon Sir Eric Pickles who said: “It is with great pleasure that I take on the mantle of President of The Enterprise Forum and would like to thank Lord Maclaurin for his dedication to the Forum since 1997. I have spoken at the Forum many times over its 20 year history and know how vital it has been in making sure all business sectors are heard during political discourse and not just those that are in vogue at the time. I look forward to working with The Enterprise Forum’s Directors to ensure that our programme meets the challenges UK business will face in the coming years.”

The Enterprise Forum is run by an unpaid board of senior directors from business and industry with a membership that includes commercial organisations (FTSE 100 companies to SMEs), trade associations and charities. The organisation does not take a position on policy, and does not donate to or received donations from any political party.
