Member’s profile: Michael Foreman
I have worked in the Association/Not for Profit Sector since 1995 when I was recruited by one of the world’s largest Professional Congress Organisers and Association Management Consultancies, which specialised in medical and scientific meetings for Not for Profit Organisations.
In recent years I have held senior executive management positions as Owner, Managing Director, Senior Strategic Consultant and Sales and Marketing Director.
I have specialist knowledge in the medical association, pharmaceutical and device sectors including in depth understanding of compliance and guidelines in relation to educational and congress activity. I have developed niche experience in the area of corporate partnerships and have first hand experience of significantly increasing revenue for associations through strategic insights and management of industry partners and sponsors. Over my career I have built many close business relationships with a network of association leaders, medical professionals and senior pharmaceutical executives who I have worked with as well as with colleagues in the Association and Meetings Industry.
I have sat on numerous industry advisory boards including Tourism Montreal, Confex & The UK Meetings Show & acted as a Liverpool Ambassador. I have recently been appointed to the Best Cities Advisory Board. I have been a board member of The Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) on and off since 2009 & Chairman from 2011-2013.
I am a keen triathlete & golfer & have a passion for charity, photography & international travel. I am married to fellow South African Lauren, have 3 gorgeous children Josh, Allie and Evie and don’t forget Milo our Portuguese water dog!
I am currently seeking business and employment opportunities as well as consulting projects.
