An Insight Event Evening with our Chairman Peter Hensman OBE

Peter Hensman OBE is widely known and respected throughout Cumbria and beyond for his role as Chairman of one of the county’s largest tourism and leisure businesses, Lake District Estates.  

In an exclusive live interview hosted by Cumbrian businesswoman, Sue Howorth of The Family Business Network, Peter will share his story for the first time.  Never having talked openly about his family business before, Peter will give an insight into the challenges and key defining moments of his life and career.

Speaking about the forthcoming event, Sue said, “I feel truly honoured to be trusted by Peter to help him share his personal story. I am very much looking forward to giving people the opportunity to learn first-hand about Peter’s life and career and his hopes for the future, as well a unique insight into the family business.  Many will be familiar with the different companies operating within the group, but not be aware of the fascinating history behind the business and how it has developed through the generations”.

The event will commence on Wednesday 11th September at 5:30pm in the Percival Lecture Theatre of the Ambleside Campus (University of Cumbria) with drinks and canapes for a 6.30pm start, concluding at approximately 8.30pm.

Hosted by The Family Business Network, the event takes place in partnership with Cartmell Shepherd and supported by Enterprise Answers and RfM Accountants. The event supports the work of both the Lake District Foundation and the Cumbria Community Foundation.
