Ruth Everard to address Entrepreneurs on The Move on Sept 27th at Lord Ashcroft International Business School

27th September 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Ruth Everard is a dynamic entrepreneur with a passion for creating a positive impact in multiple fields. Ruth earned a law degree from the University of Oxford and began her career as a solicitor in the City of London. Since leaving corporate finance, a significant portion of her career has revolved around running her family’s philanthropically funded social enterprise, Dragonmobility. Ruth had been the first disabled infant to use an elevating powerchair to access mainstream education from nursery. Her work with Dragonmobility allows her to impact other lives in the same way, by providing innovative engineering solutions to enhance mobility and accessibility for individuals with disabilities. Drawing on her professional experience in areas as diverse as psychology, PR, and tax, Ruth now also dedicates a portion of her time to a parallel role as a civil mediator, serving as an independent third party helping opposing parties in commercial legal disputes to reach amicable and beneficial resolutions. Ruth’s unwavering dedication stems from her belief in equality through opportunity, and her practical and pragmatic approach to problem solving. The original prototype powerchair that Ruth used to access her own education is now housed in the Wellcome Medicine Galleries at the London Science Museum.
