Mr Peter Westgarth, Chief Executive, The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme and former Chief Executive of Young Enterprise UK, Oxford.

"From August 1990 to July 2005, Peter Westgarth was Chief Executive of Young Enterprise UK, the charity which runs a range of enterprise education programmes in schools, colleges and universities "to inspire and equip young people to learn and succeed through enterprise". Mr Westgarth's fifteen year period as Chief Executive was marked by a major change in the reach and role of Young Enterprise, to the extent that, following a more than six-fold increase in the number of young people involved, it is now truly national in coverage, operating through twelve regional organisations. He has been instrumental in promoting the need for enterprise learning in schools, including primary schools." [1]
