About Us

The Entrepreneurs' Forum brings together like-minded business owners to share experience and help each other grow their companies faster.

Founded in 2002 as a not-for-profit organisation by Sir Peter Vardy and Lorna Moran OBE, we've grown from 40 founding members to over 300 North East entrepreneurs.

Joining from all sectors, our members regularly meet at inspirational events and through peer-to-peer mentoring to share ideas, make valuable new connections and learn from those who have been there and done it all before.

Helping North East entrepreneurs is our only agenda and, by offering ambitious owner-managers the chance to invest time in business and personal growth alongside like-minded people, we believe we can help them to reach their potential faster.

Collectively, this unique way of sharing knowledge in a welcoming and friendly way supports growing businesses, nurtures emerging talent and helps to make a major contribution to the sustainable transformation of the North East economy.
