Following a successful first career in mainstream UK book publishing and journalism, Dublin-born Ruth trained as a coach in the mid 90’s, which led to a role as Head of Consultancy with undergraduate mentors Future Prospect.
In 2007 Ruth discovered the extraordinary “flexible rigour” of Nancy Kline’s Thinking Environment, began her inspirational TTT training, and is now a member of the Time to Think Global Faculty.
In 2008 Ruth launched her own consultancy Think It Through and regularly leads TTT open and qualifying courses in the UK and Ireland, including supervising participant practicums. Working in-house her leadership development experience includes corporate and public sectors, start-ups and SMEs.
A Masters in Cultural and Critical Thinking (Birkbeck, 2002) supports Ruth’s passion for creative and independent thinking: she is “on a mission to transform meetings from dull to dynamic”. Ruth was Chairman for five years of a national grant making Trust, is Development consultant to Midas PR, a member of the Association for Coaching, Advisor to the Board Advisory Partnership and a Fellow at the RSA.
