An audience with Peter Hensman OBE

An audience with Peter Hensman OBE


This unique event is set to take place at the Percival Lecture Theatre at the Ambleside Campus on Wednesday 11th September.

Peter Hensman OBE is widely known and respected throughout Cumbria and beyond for his role as Chairman of prominent family-owned business, Lake District Estates, as well as for his other business and personal interests. These have included holding several non–executive roles in both the private and public sectors, his current role as a trustee of the Lake District Foundation and being awarded an OBE in 2014 for services to the rural economy in Cumbria.

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 triumphs, challenges and key defining moments of his life and career.

The event takes place at a historic moment for Peter, following the 80th birthday milestone of his family’s property and tourism business last year and following recent celebrations to mark 160 years of Ullswater Steamers, a business acquired by his grandfather, Lord Wakefield in 1954.

The event will commence at 5:30pm 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.

Not to be missed, strictly limited tickets for the event are available at £15 each.
