What Ruth’s clients say:

‘I can highly recommend Ruth as a phenomenal executive coach. I first met Ruth a few years ago whilst trying to figure out the next stages of my career. I was at a crossroad, facing a lot of different options and trying to decide whether to remain in a senior corporate job or pursue something more entrepreneurial.  Ruth’s insights into my character and strengths and weaknesses were incredibly astute throughout and she was able to really get me on a plan to take advantage of them. I can’t say enough good things about the way the she has helped me and my career grow.” DK, President

‘As a result of working with Ruth for a short intensive period of executive coaching, we were able to align the leadership team and commit to the next phase of growth and development. It was a fascinating, enjoyable and testing experience, which helped us develop the tools and focussed motivation to take our business to the next stage. I would not hesitate to recommend Ruth’s services to any senior team who are looking for an authentic and sustainable way forward.’ PB, Partner
