About your speakers

Ellen Green, Award-winning company director of Blue Badge Co.

In 2011, she made her first blue badge wallet and armed with e-commerce and online marketing skills, she executed the launch of the product, developing the sales channels and managing distribution. Ellen has won a string of awards, appeared on Dragons' Den and spoke on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour. Under her leadership, Blue Badge Co has gone from a back bedroom enterprise to a half million turnover company.
