Ruth Stoop

After 10 years of running my own company within the experiential marketing field, I am embracing a new life & new challenges in Brisbane’s Business World. I believe that the responsibilities of owning & running one’s own business bring with it much value that can be added to a larger corporation. Whilst my primary skills and expertise fall within the marketing, business development and project management roles, I have garnered much experience & management skills over the last decade.

I have a profound value for the role and responsibilities of Human Resources & a sound understanding of corporate finances & cash flow. Strategic Direction is of key importance & an area of work that I thoroughly enjoy. I am hard working & solutions driven. I have an outgoing & energetic personality. I am a perfectionist & this reflects in the level of work that I produce. I have excellent client skills and strong management capabilities.

In 2018 I graduated with my MBA from the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) which is recognised internationally as one of the best Business Schools in South Africa & wider Africa. Whilst some people find the experience of obtaining an MBA a laborious one, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not without its challenges, I thrived in an environment that not only taught me new skills and knowledge, but also challenged some of my pre-existing perceptions. Above all, the personal development & management skills that I obtained during these 2 years was of most value to me.

Whilst Covid-19 was an awful period of time for many people and businesses (my own included) the silver lining in my personal experience was with the banning of trade shows and events (which approximately 80% of our business revenue was based in) I was forced to take a step back and re-evaluate my work-life balance. It was during this reflective period that I met my now husband & together we have started our new adventure in Brisbane.

I am looking forward to experiencing everything that this city has to offer me and adding value to its business community. If your are looking for a ‘go-getter’ who is willing & excited to work hard, please reach out to me, let’s start the conversation!
