Mr Wright is a qualified early years teacher who co-founded Paint Pots Nurseries with his wife, Anna, in 1993. The group now operates eight early years settings and one after-school club.
He currently serves as an adviser to the Government on gender diversity in the workforce and to the National Association of Head Teachers on early years practice.
In his new capacity as national representative, Mr Wright will attend the World Forum's 2019 conference from 8-11 April 2019 in Macao, China, alongside childcare professionals from more than 80 countries across the globe.
He replaces early years consultant Laura Henry, who has held the role for the last nine years.
Mr Wright said, ‘I am thrilled to accept this appointment, aiming to continue to build on the great work Laura has done to foster our national relationship with the global community for the benefit of all the world’s children.
‘It is a privilege to participate as a member of the World Forum Foundation. In my opinion, it is not an exaggeration to say that attending the World Forum conference is a life-changing experience that connects like-minded people across the world and broadens our perspective beyond our own context to recognise that all children have needs and deserve the best future we can provide for them together.’
