Ruth Wootton

Momentwm Consulting was founded by Ruth Wootton and is based in South Wales

With over two decades experience in a variety of senior leadership roles and 10 years of coaching and leadership development under my belt, I work with individuals, teams and organisations to create sustainable success by giving them the tools, skills and strategies they need to aspire, grow and succeed.

I’ve lent my skills to industries ranging from sport and banking, finance and housing to legal, tech and everywhere in between, working with people at all levels from recent graduates to top-level CEOs.

And I love my job. Being able to help others unleash their potential is by far the most rewarding and satisfying thing about my own career.

I’m an ILM Level 7 qualified Executive Coach and Leadership Mentor, Career Coach, Member of the Association for Coaching, accredited Resilience at Work® Practitioner and I also hold an ILM Level 7 Award in Strategic Leadership.

But my experience goes beyond the theory. It’s my real, hands-on experience of leading, motivating and encouraging individuals and teams to achieve their personal ambitions and business success that’s attracted individuals, teams and organisations from across the UK to work with me.

Balancing encouragement and support with real-life practicality helps push my clients outside of their comfort zones, unleash their potential and transform their hopes, ideas, goals and objectives into tangible and sustainable success.

My commitment to supporting personal growth has also led to me speaking at industry events and conferences as well as delivering webinars and masterclasses.

Sara Pepper OBE

Director of Creative Economy, Cardiff University

"I recently undertook coaching with Ruth to support my next career move. I had decided that I was keen to find a new opportunity that would enable me to progress and take the next step in terms of role and responsibility. The experience of working with Ruth was an incredibly positive and inspiring one. She worked with me to better understand and articulate my strengths in terms of skills, knowledge and previous experience. She also encouraged me to be confident in my ambitions and supported the whole process of submitting job applications and preparing for interview. As a result of the coaching I made some significant changes in the way I think about myself in a work context and how I communicate this with others. I was very fortunate that I was successful in securing my dream job and part of that success can be attributed to Ruth’s support and the coaching work that we undertook together. Thank you Ruth! I would not hesitate in highly recommending Ruth."

"Thought provoking and challenging are the best suitable words I can use to describe the coaching. Ruth has a unique ability to get you to think about things that you didn't even know were possible! She is a superb coach and isn't afraid to keep challenging you in order to ensure you are exploring all options."

Claire Lacy

"I just wanted to say a big “thank you”. Thanks to you and the coaching that you provided for me I have just presented my first training session and I feel brilliant. The coaching that you provided me with when I was completely lost and downhearted about my career helped me focus and give me direction. It gave me the push I needed to take control of what I wanted to do and take some action."
