Ruth has more than 25 years experience as an executive and team coach, and workshop facilitator, working with leaders, owners, young emerging leaders, and senior management teams (including working virtually with global teams), supporting them through organisational change, rapid growth, succession, starting up and pre/post acquisition.
In 1991 she became one of the original coaches at The Coaching House, one of the UK’s first executive coaching companies. She was instrumental in building the company’s approach and led many projects for them during their first eight years of business. She started up, and for five years was the MD at the UK hub of Insight, an international training company. She launched Creation in 1999.
