  • Ruth was a fantastic Executive Coach who helped me to improve my leadership skills and make longer term career decisions in my senior medical leadership role. Her thoughtful questioning, insight and support made all the difference to me and I highly recommend her for anyone in a senior leadership role who is looking to take their skills to the next level, or to plan their executive level career.

  • Before I met with Ruth, I was a little sceptical about how interview coaching would help me. However, I found that my interview skills improved significantly after a few sessions of training with Ruth. Ruth is very warm and enthusiastic, at the same time she had been very critical about my performance. I now feel much more prepared for my future interviews. More importantly, I learnt the skills that allows me to sell myself better. I would recommend Ruth for anyone who has incoming interviews.
