Benefits of attending

  • Making your voice heard, and to raise day-to-day operating issues that might be missed amid the current ‘noise’ over coronavirus;
  • Understand how others are preparing their businesses;
  • Use the gravitas of the Chamber to influence and campaign on the business issues that matter – locally, regionally, and nationally.


Ruth Edwards is the Member of Parliament for Rushcliffe. With a background in cyber security and a passion for protecting our natural world, Ruth has used her position in Parliament to campaign on a range of issues. Ruth has successfully campaigned to bring forward the phase out of new petrol and diesel cars to 2030, to include measures to stop illegal deforestation in the Environment Bill, to outlaw threats to share intimate images without consent and to secure a Government review of the Computer Misuse Act. Ruth is also a champion for the East Midlands and has worked hard to secure the East Midlands Freeport which will be based at key transport and manufacturing hubs throughout Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.

Ruth is a member of the Home Affairs Select Committee and is currently campaigning to better protect consumers from online fraud, particularly fraudulent adverts. She is the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Secretary of State for Scotland, Alister Jack. Ruth also co-chairs the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Geographically Protected Food and is a member of the Conservative Environment Network, championing local producers, sustainability and pushing for country-wide conservation and decarbonisation efforts.

When she’s not in Parliament, Ruth can be found at home with her husband, their alpacas, chickens, bees, Geoffrey the tortoise, and Sergeant Wilson the donkey.
