Ruth took a very complex change program, a large volume of content and market research outcomes and developed a clear and succinct suite of communications carefully tailored to the various audience requirements. Ruth worked with a great deal of flexibility and efficiency to meet a series of short deadlines with engagement across a range of stakeholders. Her warmth and communication skills made a difficult exercise straightforward.
