Ruth Clare

Courage is the catalyst behind all change, growth and learning.

It is the foundation of authentic connection, confidence and resilience.

Thinking alone is never courageous.

Courage is always seen through action.

With enough courageous action our whole lives can transform.

No matter if you want support learning how to navigate difficult conversations, stay resilient through a time of change, grow more confident and connected at work, or to uplevel your business storytelling and presentation skills, I can help.

I am available as a motivational speaker, MC, for corporate training or get in touch for other media and podcast guest requests.

My memoir, ENEMY

ENEMY is the award-winning true story of Ruth Clare's determination to rise above the challenging circumstances of her childhood. Profoundly insightful, Enemy is a masterclass of courage in action.
