Shell

"Shell’s Exploration team has a 15 year relationship with Ruth Berry and the Moller Centre. The resulting programme has delivered high-quality, jointly-developed, bespoke leadership training addressing Exploration-specific challenges. Ruth has provided stability and continuity through that period, in addition to ensuring continued programme quality and freshness. Ruth has an excellent insight into our culture and has an ability to get to the heart of people and leadership issues in a challenging but personable and non-confrontational way. This has had a profoundly positive impact in the organisation."

BBC

"Ruth has worked with the BBC for three years and in that time she has facilitated several senior leadership engagements and coached senior leaders here. In all of the work Ruth has supported I am always impressed by her total professionalism, the hard work she puts in to understand the challenges and her pragmatic nature - which means that she is consistently in demand by several teams at the BBC .Ruth is utterly dependable and collaborative in her style and her insights into leadership are first class. She is trusted by myself and my team, and is an excellent sounding board as we progress our own leadership and cultural change work. I would recommend her wholeheartedly."

Sasol

"RMB Learning and Sasol Petroleum International leadership programme "GENESIS" The intensive programme was developed and run by Ruth Berry and Darren Rudkin to specifically support a culture change in an upstream oil & gas company. I would compare it to swimming lessons for leaders; some are expert swimmers and may need to improve their turns, while other want to practice a new stroke or even are novice swimmers. Following intensive individual engagements and team coaching/team events a greater awareness and consciousness was instilled with the executive leadership team of 8 people, after which we rolled out the programme to the top 60 leaders of the company. Clearly not a quick fix to success but rather the dedicated start of a journey to create a new leadership élan in SPI. Ruth and Darren strike an excellent balance between challenge and support and create a very positive tension between the status quo and the aspiration, which is energising and inspiring."

Croydon Council

"Ruth has provided me with personal coaching and also facilitated sessions at a senior team level during my time as CEO of LB of Croydon. She helped my own personal leadership by enabling me to identify weaknesses and develop strategies for improvement. She was always a great source of advice in real time situations, drawing on her breadth and depth of experience in working with senior leaders in many different corporate contexts. One of Ruth's strongest attributes is in recognising and working with the emotional dimensions of being a senior leader to improve overall effectiveness"

DLA Piper UK LLP

"One of Ruth's most remarkable talents in the work that she does is to use her natural empathy to connect with individuals both on a one to one and a group basis. She has an unusual ability to bridge both the client and the participants' needs.

Ruth's facilitation style helps to equalise everyone in the group - she has worked with us on our Leadership Development Programme for two years and has been crucial in creating a learning environment which enables the subsequent learning to be achieved in a climate of trust and enthusiasm.

Finally, I am completely amazed at how Ruth can manage to enrol a group of people she has barely met into extremely early morning running on our programmes! I see this as an indicator of how she can influence others through the sheer force of her exceptional personality."

Travers Smith

"Working with Des and Ruth is both reassuring and inspiring.  Their collaboration brings the safety of decades of training and leadership experience with a fresh and constantly innovative perspective.

We have now run four training programmes with Des and Ruth at the Moller Centre.  As we grow to appreciate more fully what is key for our professionals in the messaging and development we are facilitating, Des and Ruth guide and accompany us.  They advise where their experience suggests a different or nuanced approach, and they in turn grow to appreciate more fully how we work and what our lawyers need from them.

They are perfect partners in this respect – nothing surprises them or causes them to judge, but they are happy to challenge whilst always supporting us."
