Ruth’s style is empathetic, pragmatic and:

  • Takes into consideration the many facets and influences impacting individuals and/or organizations.
  • Stems from a strength-based, proactive philosophy that focuses on the positive.
  • Builds on and enhances the qualities you and/or your team already possess, rather than presuming that you are somehow lacking or deficient.



Ruth’s coaching supports you to live your life abundantly and assists you to reach your fullest potential and goals

Our work together will assist you to recognize your outstanding qualities. We will take a pragmatic look at getting you to where you want to be from where you are now. Ultimately, you will learn to articulate these qualities to yourself, enabling you to shine your inner magnificence outwards.

‘Our Work’ means precisely that:  you will derive the benefits of our coaching relationship in direct proportion to what you invest in it.

As your coach, my role is to help you define and embrace your inherent strengths, skills, and qualities — your inner diamond. I support you in the process of cutting and refining that rough gemstone, enabling you to express your brilliance and realize your full potential.

Your role is to participate fully in the relationship, to trust in the process… and to learn to believe in yourself!

You already have abundant resources within; our work together helps you to manifest them without.

“When the spirit of people is strong, focused and vibrant, wonderful things happen.” Harrison Owen

What clients say about Ruth’s coaching style:


  • Delivered with a sense of humour!
  • A keen ability to see past the obvious, to identify the deeper aspects of what’s going on in any situation.


Ruth coaches leaders to be visionary, flexible, focused and humble

As a leader, you understand the importance of your role in creating an organization where each and every employee is aligned with – and focused on – achieving and even surpassing organizational goals!

Our work together will examine how to:

  • Balance your focus between task (controlling, achievement, and systems awareness) and relationship (self-awareness, relating, compromising)
  • Balance your focus between being reactively protective and proactively creative

Hone your “humility muscle” to increase your ability to:

  • Face facts
  • Acknowledge that you can’t achieve results without the able assistance of others
  • Create great, self-aware, empowered, authentically engaged employees
  • Ask questions when in doubt
  • Have a clear vision that drives organizational success
  • Applaud others for that success while being culpable when results are less than stellar
  • Empower yourself and others to be agile and innovative in the constancy of change
  • Tap into the latent capacity and capability of those around you to generate stunning success!

“Great leaders build mechanisms of connection and commitment rooted in freedom of choice, rather than relying on systems of coercion and control.” Jim Collins

“I recently heard Ruth speak to an audience of over 400 at a motivational event.

She is a compelling story teller, she held the audience in a state of suspension between laughing at the humorous parts and wondering what would come next in the dramatic bits.

Her speech was an inspiration and an experience. Her style is comfortable, conversational and positively provocative.

She entertains and enlightens her listeners while making them think and encouraging them to take action.”

Peter Wright, Director, Public Speakers Association

Peter Wright

Ruth is an inspiring speaker and great storyteller, who weaves a seamless message within her presentation. Her humour and down-to-earth messages kept the audience hanging onto her every word. Ruth’s message was funny, entertaining, real and inspirational. I wholeheartedly recommend her for both organizational and public keynote speaking forums

Paula Morand

Ruth's performance at momondays was well crafted, entertaining and engaging. Her message about choices really hit home with the audience. We'd have her back on the momondays stage anytime!

Michel Neray - Founder and Producer of momondays

Ruth is a wonderful coach, mentor and facilitator. She has an uncanny ability to unlock insights into issues by guiding the people she works with to see and understand their worlds differently. She has a deeply human touch that is grounded in the realism of commercial experience and a sensitivity to the complexities of social and organisational affairs.

I thoroughly enjoyed Ruth’s bubbly and enthusiastic presentation straddled by a touch of personal humour and a sense of commitment to society. Her delivery was very eloquent and confident. The message was clear and precise and riveted the diverse audience for 10 minutes leaving us wanting more.

Martin Buckland

Ruth is a confident, inspiring and effervescent speaker. She strategically uses humour to create a relaxed environment while captivating the audience with her story of personal resilience. In a brief few minutes, Ruth left us wanting more and sent us forth with a refreshed gratitude and respect for the power of human kindness and perseverance. The plot twists of life really do occur for a reason and uncovering that reason is Ruth's passion.

As the owner of a marketing agency for speakers - and the host of momondays Barrie, I see a LOT of speakers... I can say without reservation that Ruth has a genuine talent for speaking. When she shared her story on the momondays stage in 2014, she had the audience laughing, thinking and on their feet. Ruth, you speak with a genuineness and humour that touches an audience. It was a pleasure!
