Personal Story

Ruth also shares her personal story which includes how she overcome PTSD to build three successful careers.

“Ruth comes highly recommended as a speaker.
We invited Ruth to Birkbeck College to speak about taking ownership of your own career path with our Astrea network for women in professional service roles.
The topic fits well with Astrea’s aims to enable women to take full advantage of their opportunities. Ruth is a very engaging speaker. From the very beginning, she established a workshop-style quality, getting individuals to assess what was most important to them in their life and career, and encouraging them to vocalise it with others. But far from following a strictly rehearsed script, Ruth dealt with a range of questions from women about their particular concerns and was able to respond with helpful and practical suggestions.
She adapted her talk according to the changes in conversation to ensure everyone got the most benefit out of it. Everyone left the event with a written goal for their life or career and a time frame in which to achieve it and had made a promise to help one another to reach their goals.
The feedback I’ve had about Ruth’s talk has been incredibly positive because it was personalised to each individual – which is a great testament to her skill in delivering our most well-attended event of the year!”
