Charles Dunstone to be Chairman of Prince's Trust

(By Richard Holway 7.00am 23rd July 09) Many readers are either involved with the Prince's Trust or are aware of my own involvement in the Prince's Trust Technology Leadership Group (TLG). Therefore you will be interested to know that Charles Dunstone has been selected to succeed Sir Fred Goodwin as Chairman of the Prince's Trust.

Dunstone is, of course, the founder, CEO and main shareholder in Carphone Warehouse and, at 44, is seen as one of the UK's most successful entrepreneurs. Dunstone has been a Council member since 2000 and had headed the Prince's Trust trading activities which have made a significant contribution to our much needed fundraising activities. Dunstone has also supported and attended some of the activities of the TLG. Personally I think this is an excellent choice which sends out all the right messages about how entrepreneurs can make it big in the UK by hard work and flair - with an ICT tinge too!
