Since her appointment three years ago, Forrester has been credited with reinvigorating the TGI Friday's brand.

Forrester will be speaking at the Arena Lunch on Monday 11 July at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel, London.
Tickets to the event are £130 plus VAT for Arena members and £165 plus VAT for non-members. For further information and to buy tickets contact Lorraine Wood on 0203 087 2378, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.arena.org.uk.
