Ruby Wax has had a successful 25-year career in television. Through her directness, intuition and humour she quickly established a relationship with her guests during interviews, creating a climate of mutual appreciation and rapport. This incredibly useful skill can be taught to any leader who wants to motivate, inspire and improve communication within their organisation.
Ruby Wax is a classically trained actress, studying at the Royal Shakespeare Company alongside Helen Mirren, getting all the ‘wench’ parts. Initially, her career took off behind the camera, writing for numerous television programmes including Not the Nine O Clock News, Happy Families, and notably the sitcom Girls on Top. Ruby Wax later became the script editor for Absolutely Fabulous, coming up with many of the one-liners.
Ruby Wax eventually landed her own chat show and subsequently made a range of successful television programmes. Ruby made a name for herself as an unapologetically-American, unabashed, wise-cracking interviewer and television host, creating some incredibly funny and unforgettable television moments.
After a harrowing struggle with depression, Ruby launched Ruby’s Health Quest (1995), including an accompanying book. This quest followed Ruby as she went in search of alternative medicines, advice and treatments in aid of seeking perfect health. She has since become qualified in Psychotherapy and studied in Neuroscience at Oxford.
In 2002, Wax authored her memoir, How Do You Want Me?, breaking onto The Sunday Times bestseller list. She continues to work within the Comic Relief organization, making significant contributions to charitable causes.
Ruby teaches business leaders how to effectively flex their communication muscles using keenly developed exercises of discipline to create an environment of trust that inspires, motivates, and increases productivity. Its not about manipulation, instead it’s extracting the juice of rapport, founded on the principals of basic human bonds.
Using her personal experiences as a television host interviewing the world’s rich and famous, Ruby takes her audience on a journey through her triumphs and failures, exposing the ultimate destination – how to instantly and simultaneously create trust and rapport. This is a poignant lesson in soft skill development, taught from an endlessly charming, and humorous leader.

"Over the past 2 weeks we have been collating feedback from our staff and the results have been fantastic. You really gave our event a lift and our management team thoroughly enjoyed working with you on the day. There will be fond memories of yourself and Andy Marchant driving round the dance floor in those motorised bathtubs! It was a pleasure to work with you and many thanks for all your help and input at our event." Event Manager – Aegon
"Thank you so much for your wonderful speech at the OXPIP lunch. I have received so many calls and messages from guests saying how you brought the subject of attachment “alive” in such an entertaining way. You have an amazing talent and all of us at Oxpip are immensely grateful to you. We expect to raise more that £30,000 from the event. If we had not done it, we would have been forced to close by next spring for lack of funds. You have quite literally “saved” us."
