Working mums are often an organisation's best asset - focused, efficient, committed, ambitious – if they are given the support to thrive.
I’m Ruth Moody, I’m an executive coach, the MD of a people development consultancy, and Mum to two small boys. As a professional working mum, I understand the challenges and frustrations of trying to be all things to all people.
I help employers support working mothers return to work and to coach them through the often-daunting new world of work - with small children.

About Me

Women are never the same after they’ve had children. They’re not as committed or ambitious. They leave work early. Their edge has gone. And what’s happened to their confidence? Whether these are real attitudes in your business or concerns that your returning women carry with them, they all have an impact on how successfully women return to work.
