Simon Foster is a business leader in the global exhibition and media industry. For nearly 30 years, Simon has focused on bringing business to life through connections. Throughout his career, notably at UBM plc and Comexposium, he’s worked to bring communities together to build relationships and develop opportunities in all types of events across the globe.

Simon strives to embrace change and empower people. He believes in building teams and businesses that thrive from disruption and push boundaries. Simon sits on several management and industry boards, he’s Non-Executive Director of Shinesmith, and a Trustee of the Chiltern Learning Trust in Luton.

Simon has passion for music and sport, even though he is not as good as he would like at either, and he lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and young daughter, both of whom are enthusiastic about all that Dreams Come True do.

“Having come relatively late to fatherhood, my young daughter has taught me so much in the last few years on the absolute joy of being able to watch and help someone grow up and develop. Having then seen how Dreams Come True, can add not only more joy, but also support and help others as they grow and develop, I found it truly inspirational and I wanted to help. I am both delighted and honoured to have the chance to do so.”
