“Once you have tasted Ruby Star, everything else just tastes sour and, quite frankly, a bit rubbish in comparison.”
The Abundance Lab
“I am definitely going to turn some of the theory into practice and am quite excited about trying some of the tricks of the trade. A really good course that was far removed from the usual mundane workshop.”
Course Participant: Relationship Marketing for the Voluntary Sector
“They approached Room31.co.uk with an open mind, provided us with a well needed kick up the arse with an oomph assessment. They are available whenever we need advice, support or another kick!
I can’t recommended Ruby Star Associates enough for any businesses who may have lost focus”
Ruth Thomas, Room31 Fashion
““I wanted to say how much I enjoyed your recent sales course “Accidental Business”. It’s a while since I have been on a sales course and the opportunity to be creative using Lego certainly worked for me. It highlighted to me the importance of being creative and in challenging my own thinking in my approach to sales.
Your useful hints and tips and the way you dispelled any myths I had about my sales technique also provided me with a great insight and a platform for me to drive my sales performance forward.
I also found your style and approach most refreshing. ”
John Warrington, Personal Excellence in Life
“I recently attended the Accidental Business sales course and was thouroughly impressed with the way they delivered the course. They used simple techniques using Lego to really get the point across about how people view your business.
They spoke with purpose and their views on selling are really thought provoking, they view selling more like a science than anything else and constantly searches for most recent research.
Having been on this course has caused me to consider more carefully how my potential customers view me and my company, which can only be a good thing.”
Mike Bold, Tarporley Developments
I have been Ooomph’d this week – and quite an experience it was!
It would have no hesitation recommending it to anyone who really wants to move their business forward.
Julia Wood, Julia Wood Associates
The session was creative, fun and engaging and they demonstrated their knowledge and understanding of my business and the design industry in general….. incredibly perceptive and offered real, workable solutions to some of the problems that I struggle with. The report provided afterwards expanded on this and is of real value. Without doubt I will be taking part in one of their courses in the near future. Brilliant and highly recommended!
Dave Bradburn, Opus Creative Design
Reminded me why I do what I do!
Emma Foden, Dynamic Fitness
Working with RubyStar Associates is like having rocket fuel for your business. Supremely creative and personable, they get to grips with your business and what makes it tick within minutes of meeting you. Their ideas for generating business and growing my business were outside the box, inside the box – they owned the box!
Stephanie Roper, Wardrobe Angel
WOW! What can I say about Ruby Star apart from I cannot recommend her and sing her praises highly enough! I first saw Isla in action giving a speech at a 4Networking meeting. The tips she gave had immediate value and could be applied to any business and would have a positive effect either saving money, making money or making you work more effectively. Isla offered me a free Oomph assessment and was absolutely brilliant! She assessed how much Oomph I have, gave me an abundance of more Oomph and I look forward to working with them in the future. I was particularly impressed with Isla’s knowledge and experience and this shines through every minute she is speaking. Isla is very innovative and very creative in the way she thinks and approaches things. Isla not only uses business language in layman’s terms but she is innovative and fun with it making seemingly boring areas of the business much more interesting. As a very astute business woman, it is no surprise that Isla works very smart and efficiently to enable her to offer fantastic value for money and is a very safe investment. I can see why accidental businesses are a speciality of Isla’s as she will get to the heart of what drives the business and where the passion lies and be able to apply easy to follow processes to make the business more successful. I have no hesitation in recommending them- in fact I already have recommended them to several people!
Rachel Gough, Inspired Marketing
RubyStar Associates worked with me on my Business Model Generation for a new business idea I am just getting off the ground. The session was incredibly valuable providing great insight and guidance in a very creative way. They are very knowledgeable and helped me to put my idea into context and left me with a model which we can now work with going forward. I know we will get results much quicker than we’d have achieved without this session and I’d have no hesitation in recommending them to any business who wants better results.

They really understood my business and what I wanted to achieve as a mediator and provided me with some excellent advice to take this forward
Fiona Green, FMG Mediation
I thoroughly enjoyed my ooomph assessment and came away feeling really empowered to take my business up a level. I was given loads of really helpful advice, especially on how to make social media work better for me and how to access lot of useful internet tools that I didn’t know existed. They really seemed to understand the needs of my business, my target market and how to maximise opportunities to increase awareness of my brand. The follow up report was full of practical advice and tools such a cost and time management applications. I would very highly recommend RubyStar Associates and looking forward to using their services in the future.
Their style and approach in Business is vibrant, igniting that vital spark needed for small Business to think Big ! My initial report from Ruby star Associates was unique,informative and pinpointed precisely how to give my business a boost in the right direction. Our session was relaxed and buzzing at the same time.
Anne Moore, Vocal Excellence
They have a wonderful way of making the complex simple and of drawing out the essential issues from a discussion. They’re creative and fun to work with and if she doesn’t know the answer to a problem she always knows someone who does, or how to find the right person. Highly approachable – friendly, witty and fun to be with. They have a wealth of knowledge and are also efficient and do exactly what they say they’ll do. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them.
Alison Colyer, Blissful Living
[They] spent one hour with me and left me with several really valuable and immediate ‘to do’ s. I also have quite a few things to think about and action later, as well as some generic points to reflect on, for the future. It was an enjoyable hour and not too taxing – she knows what she is talking about and makes it easy to see next steps, although I’d never have seen them without her. I seriously recommend a chat, and consider the new Ruby Star coaching course – great value for money I can’t wait to go on it…”
Liz Harris, Monton Marketing Company
[They've] been working with us for only a short time but already I am amazed at their ability to get to the knub of our issues, provide detailed documentation (not just good advice but real everyday work!) and get their feet under our table. [RubyStar Associates] has already represented us at a top level client meeting and is included in management meetings to help us move things forward. You would be mad not to hire them. Just make sure they still have time to work with us .
Gary Cliffe, Changing Lives in Cheshire
By combining Big Business experience with SME practicality, [RubyStar Assoc.] excels at helping smaller organisations behave like (and compete evenly with) much larger ones. She told us numerous stories of when she worked in big businesses and helped us develop similar systems that massively increased our productivity & lead generation. Overall, couldn’t rate her highly enough.
Al Elliott, Dallas Matthews Ltd.
[My RubyStar Associate] made me completely change the way that I looked at my business. After just one session I realised that in order to survive, let alone grow and prosper, I had to adopt some basic big business practices. They helped me to prioritise the things I needed such as a slightly more sophisticated forward order book than my current, scribbled orders on an A4 pad! I continue to be impressed with her range and depth of knowledge in all aspects of business and I am proud to call her one of my closest trusted advisers.
Chris Jenkins, Managing Director, Homeowers Advice Centre.
I really didn’t get it, until they explained the value and satisfaction to be gained from looking at my business activities from a different standpoint. I didn’t want to merely make the right noises.. [They are now] hand-holding me into a new stage of my business. [They have] a brilliant attitude. Martin Lawson, Swift Organisation.
