Real Women Speak Up about Real Issues

Here’s an opportunity for you to speak up about the issues that are of upmost importance to you as you navigate life.  In the process you may just help someone else too. 

I sincerely hope you are having a fabulous day. 

I would love your help.  I am looking for very real and relevant topics to discuss in future blogs and as subject matter for upcoming podcasts.

The blog series and podcasts will be entitled: Real Women, Real Issues.

I’m just beginning to research relevant subjects, which will assist women who are dealing with those very real issues right now in their lives.

Each blog and podcast will focus on one particular issue and contain relevant and practical assistance to help women dealing with them right now.   

  • If you are between 35 – 60 and are experiencing some challenges (either personal or professional) that you are dealing with I would love to hear about them. 


  • If you are between 35 – 60, have encountered  challenges  (either personal or professional) and have found ways to deal with and grow from those challenges then I would love to hear your story  as well. 


  • If you have any suggestions about subjects (either personal or professional) that you believe are important to cover in the upcoming series then please pass them along.   


  • If you would be willing to take part in upcoming podcasts in 2011, then please let me know (leave most convenient contact details in your email).

Please help make this future series of blogs and podcasts a success.  Success will be measured in the number of women they will support and help. 

Please send your contribution and suggestions to:

Thank you so much for your time and effort.

Igniting Your Passion Through Clarity of Purpose & Focused Action

Connect with Ruth


“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

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.

Ruth is a really great person. I thoroughly recommend her in a coaching, mentoring or facilitating role. She is one of the few coaches that has a profound experience of integral thinking which she uses to great advantage in her work.

Mike Pupius - Co-founder at Centre for Mindful Life Enhancement

Ruth is insightful, warm, caring and a great listener. These traits, coupled with her deep academic background and astute practical mind, make her an excellent coach, mentor and facilitator. Ruth helps you see complex situations from different perspectives, leading to solution or action plans. She is a delight!

Enn Martin - Enterprise Support Manager at Oracle

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!
