Ruth Whiteley, who appeared in series 11 of the reality television show, will be at the Thrive Yorkshire business growth conference being held at The Craiglands Hotel on September 29.
The Leeds born entrepreneurs’ workshop is entitled ‘Get some “umph into your sales’. Ruth, of the Harrogate-based Impact Sales Training, said: “I am delighted to be part of the Thrive Yorkshire event. As a Leeds born, Yorkshire based entrepreneur, a chance to speak to and inspire fellow business owners is a chance I jumped at.
“Experiencing the highs and lows of growing a business with a family to boot, I am always happy to help small businesses reach new heights, to consistently find new experiences to keep themselves fresh and look at their business from the customers perspective.”
Having run up Ilkley Moor in her time as a fell runner with Settle Harriers, Ruth is keen to visit Ilkley in a business suit and heels, share her tips for success and how appearing on ‘The Apprentice’, made her more determined than ever to live her dreams and create new areas for business growth.
The conference is being opened by Sir Gary Verity from Welcome To Yorkshire and has four main speakers including, keynote speaker, Kate Hardcastle from ‘Insight with Passion.
There will be many workshops on key business topics, including ‘How to stand out from the crowd’, Chris Allen from ‘Blacks Solicitors’ delivering a workshop on ‘Running an SME, Ten tips from the top’ and a workshop from Mike Ward of ‘Mike Ward Media’ on ‘How to avoid the pitfalls of company websites’.
