Ruth was an IT and Business Change recruitment consultant in the City, before quitting to go on a life-changing three month adventure snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, canyoning in Vietnam, and exploring Cambodian jungles. When she returned, she realised recruitment wasn’t for her and joined Virgin StartUp in order to change the prospect of startups for good instead. She’s now a Business Support Executive, focussing on developing our mentoring offering and handling our Doing Business with Big Business quarterly event. In her free time she runs the odd 10K, enjoys a good festival and travels whenever she can.
