Ruth Peacock is an experienced journalist, with more than 20 years at the BBC as a reporter, correspondent, producer and editor. Her work has included editing on UK and world news desks and managing reporters throughout the UK. At various times, she has specialised in religious affairs reporting. She set up the GNS two-way service, which supplies BBC local and regional radio with live interviews on news stories.
Since leaving the BBC, she has worked as a journalist, PR consultant and media trainer with various clients including the Media Trust, Future Leaders Trust and Street Child United, securing wide coverage in the UK and globally.
Ruth is also an executive coach, with clients at the BBC and charities in London. She has been at the forefront of many change projects and was a training and comms manager on the move of 6,000 staff into the new BBC building in London W1. This led to a special interest in collaboration, which she studied at Birkbeck college, as part of a Masters degree in organizational change.
Her own voluntary work includes setting up a community choir which raised £60k for charity in 4 years. She has been a trustee of three charities and chairman of one.
Ruth brings all these skills to each project to provide wide ranging support and advice.
