She is professional in her approach and highly engaging with her audience. The feedback we receive from young people on courses Ruth has delivered is always rated very high with many thanking her specifically for helping them progress with what they want to do next.

""Initially, Ruth worked with me some years ago delivering support and training to women entrepreneurs. When business support was needed for my current project of Enterprise Coaching over in Corby, Ruth was able to provide this for me too. Although specializing in marketing, Ruth has a wealth of experience in coaching, business and social enterprise support and is on the University of Northampton's preferred suppliers list. I have no hesitation in recommending Ruth to you as not only does she have the knowledge, but adapts really easily to any situation"."

She has opened and enabled us to run ( with her advice ) an Ebay shop and is currently managing preparations for a major exhibition for us and the expansion of our web site. I run and own a manufacturing & engineering business and have always struggled to make any progress in these areas. We are now making good progress on these projects with Ruth's support."
