Margot Parker

Margot Parker is an international consultant specialising in European directives and regulations as they affect British industry and commerce, particularly focussing on the affects of those regulations, which could inhibit industry and businesses' ability to sustain employment and create stable jobs for all citizens of Europe.

Margot has spent 14 years as European adviser and spokesperson for the promotions industry through British and European trade associations, including advising both SMEs and global corporations. She is regularly seen and heard on both local and national TV and radio as her opinion is frequently sought on national and international industry matters.

No stranger to the European parliament, Margot has been personally involved in lobbying in the EU in both Brussels and Strasbourg and she now feels the time has come to take a more active role in ensuring that the EU serves the community, but doesn't engulf it in an all consuming blanket of regulations which rob individual communities of their ability to make their own decisions within the EU framework. Margot believes Libertas, as the only pan European party can deliver power back to the people and at the same time a more transparent and open EU.

Margot regularly writes for business magazines and journals using her wide experience in sales and marketing, from telecoms to fashion, (she was a fashion buyer for South American retailers). Margot was recently invited to the USA to join a high profile panel to and make a presentation to an audience of representatives from international blue chip companies on the subject of international supply chain management.

Margot is passionate about the need to refocus on the current economic situation and to make sure any EU proposed laws understand the need to secure employment for all the citizens of Europe.

Margot is married with two grown up sons and is a long term resident of the East Midlands. In her spare time she enjoys reading, is an avid newspaper reader, and follows politics keenly. Margot loves meeting people from diverse cultures.
