Detailed bio


"I’ve spent the past 8 months being coached by Ruth and I can honestly say it has changed my life. Following a high performance model, Ruth has guided me through my development as an individual and as a professional. If asked, I would whole-heartedly recommend Ruth to anyone seeking to change and improve. Thank you Ruth for enriching my life. Ruth is a superb coach. Give it a go, you'll be blow away by the results!"

Jane Caddick
Director, Head of Transport, Utilities, Infrastructure and Energy, P2 Consulting

"Ruth is an AWESOME professional! She has presence and clarity. She is very gifted and a very smart Coach! "

Carla Frohmuller Andrade
MD, PhD, Especialista em Geriatria Clínica e Preventiva

"It's hard to pinpoint one specific area in my life or specific life event as the single catalyst, but I knew I needed to make a change. My health, energy, work, being a mother and a partner seemed all to be requiring so much effort and I didn't feel I was giving the best of me on any front. No matter if you're reticent or really eager, [high performance coaching] is a start in an exciting and clear pathway. I highly recommend it."

Management Consultant

"Ruth's calmness as she led me through the sessions is amazing. Her enthusiasm, happiness and joy are infectious. She enabled me to tap into that happiness and consequently l felt more empowered. Since starting the sessions I feel a much greater sense of calmness in myself, and the techniques taught enable me to tackle life's challenges in a much better and consistent way."

Parent and Grandparent

"I met Ruth Allan at an event she spoke at. After seeing her moving talk, I was honored to have had the opportunity to talk to her about things that were holding me back. After just a few minutes of talking, she got right to the heart of the matter and helped me see something that I could not see myself. I love that she uses experiential learning in what she does, and I plan to seek her out on her side of the pond and have her help me breakthrough even more. Thank you Dr. Ruth!"

Don McGrath, Ph.D
Contour Leadership CEO

"As a guest at the “Share the Change” talks with Les Brown, I saw a number of rising stars in the speaking field. One that I throughly enjoyed, was Ruth Mary Allan. She lit up the room with her message of optimism, hope and action. #ActionIsMagic. Ruth not only knows that - she practices it, by sharing her powerful message with others."

George J. Chanos
Former Attorney General of Nevada and Author of “Seize Your Destiny: A Roadmap to Success”

"She was compassionate, yet also challenged my status quo. I loved how she provided clear, practical things for me to do and re-affirmed the need for me to better manage my wellbeing."

Director, Property Management

"Ruth has so much energy and drive it's easy to believe she is powered by a nuclear reactor. In fact I think she has a greater energy density than Uranium!"
