Dame Arlene Foster

Dame Arlene Foster

Former First Minister of Northern Ireland, Dame Arlene Foster is now a popular writer, broadcaster, political commentator and guest speaker.

Described in 2017 as the second most powerful woman in UK politics (second only to the Prime Minister of the time, Theresa May), she made her first media appearance on BBC Newsnight when she was 17 years old after the IRA bombed her school bus. This was only the latest such attack in a time where these attacks were frequent. When she was a child she was forced to move with her family after an attack on their family home, and her father, a Royal Ulster Constabulary Reservist, was shot in a night-time assassination attempt and severely injured.

It was these personal experiences, plus what she learned at the University of Belfast, which sparked a political interest.

Since resigning as First Minister, she is now a popular keynote speaker on a range of important issues that reach far wider than the borders of Northern Ireland.
