Introducing The Smart Working Revolution

Meet Our Team

Ruth Gawthorpe

ruthMeet Ruth, our CEO. Ruth is a passionate champion of Smart Working. Here’s her story.

6 years ago Ruth became wheelchair bound after an operation and realised just how much talent cannot do the commute 5 days a week.

Despite an ongoing disability, Ruth is CEO of the Smart Working Revolution. As Lead Practitioner, Ruth supports Business Leaders with a range of unrivalled products to help pilot and implement smart workforce models and leadership skills. The outcome is improved business performance, customer and employee experience

Ruth lobbies Government bodies to champion the wider uptake of smarter ways of working practices that will lead to more inclusion of those who live in rural towns and villages, people with disabilities, carers and parents who want to balance family and work better. Her vision of Smart Towns and Villages is now coming to fruition in Cornwall, where she lives and works and her dream is to extend this to other rural locations in the UK.

The common denominator in all Ruth’s work is passion, people and the recognition that work happens in Brains – not offices
