Panellist bio:

Ellen joined the British Compressed Gases Association as CEO in February 2020, where she began almost immediately working on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the industry, as medical gases were a key focus during this time. After over 18 months in the role, Ellen has been working on major issues for the industry, ranging from the wave of new regulations because of Brexit to STEM and encouraging young people into the industry. Before joining BCGA, Ellen was Head of Public Affairs and Policy at the British Coatings Federation for almost five years, where a big part of her role was focused on Brexit and REACH. Prior to joining the BCF, she worked for in both the UK and European Parliaments, she then spent two years at a public affairs company working with clients in the energy, education and health sectors.
