What participants say…

“For those of us leading busy lives, at work and outside work, the opportunity to stop and focus on something different gave a valuable insight into how we might incorporate mindfulness into our daily routines and gain significant health benefits from doing so.”
— Richard Bond, Assistant Director, Head of Research Information, Governance and Graduate School Research, Business & Innovation, UWE Bristol
“Ruth ran an inspiring training session for social entrepreneurs which impressed us all. Her approach is warm and friendly and she is incredibly generous with her knowledge. By encouraging people to think about their business in pictures she cleverly interweaved some important messages about branding and marketing. The pace and level was perfect and participants valued the opportunity to reflect on their approach to marketing.”
— Julie Carthy, Award Manager, UnLTD
“Ruth delivered a one-day photography workshop to help businesses learn how to use their camera to promote their business along with their location and the surrounding landscape. Ruth’s workshop was excellent. She understood exactly what we wanted to achieve and delivered it in an easy-to-follow format which all businesses found extremely useful. The feedback was very positive and we hope to plan another workshop soon.”
— Nicola Greaves, Information and Interpretation Officer, Cotswolds Conservation Board
“Spending the day with Ruth opened up a whole new way of thinking about how to capture the essence of Batsford Arboretum and place it within the wider Cotswold landscape. Being encouraged to ‘play’ was immensely liberating, helped the creative process no end and was, above all, great fun! Thank you for an inspirational day.”
