A Shropshire businesswoman has been invited to take part in an important seminar that will look at the regulations that encourage enterprise and those which burden businesses.
Ruth Ross, managing director of north Shropshire-based Business Trust in Safety Ltd, will form part of a panel of company owners contributing to the ‘Enterprising Regulation’ workshop to be held at Kingston Business School, based at Kingston University, in Surrey, on November 8th.
Some of the country’s leading academic researchers who help to inform policy agenda on the areas of regulations will be speaking at the prestigious event.
“It is a real honour to be asked to sit on the panel at the end of the workshops and reflect on the issues raised – it should be fascinating,” said Ruth, whose business provides health and safety consultancy to firms both locally and nationally.
“We have been asked to share our own experiences in the regulatory landscape in the UK and I am looking forward to a lively discussion with some of the country’s leading specialists in this sector,” she added.
The event will be hosted by Professor Mark Hart, deputy director of the national Enterprise Research Centre and Dr John Kitching of the Small Business Research Centre.
Speakers will include Professor Jane Pollard of the Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies at Newcastle University, together with Erica Sheward, senior policy analyst at The Better Regulation Delivery Office.
Ruth commented: “These are the people who influence government agendas on business regulation so it will be interesting to hear what is said and to have an input and possibly provide a point of view from the Shropshire business community.”
