WOB Farewells an Icon - Recognising Ruth


Ruth Medd has been at the heart of Women on Boards since its inception post 2000. A long inninngs from which she has decided to retire to a largely ambassadorial role (think emeritus professor). She is keen to pursue her interest in growing cacao and making fine chocolate at Charleys in FNQ and investing in what she terms 'interesting companies'.

Everyone at WOB has a 'Ruth story' to tell - many of you more than just one! She is an icon at WOB with her legendary one-line emails and capacity for brevity, bluntness and quirky (did we mention eccentic?) behaviour! She is also renown for her generosity and great kindness, her cheerful optimistm and her willingness to go out of her way to advise and support the many thousands of women whom owe her their success on boards over the years.

We invite you to join us as in the beautiful surrounds of the QVB Tea Rooms for a special farewell gala dinner in recognition of Ruth and the great contribution she has made to the world of boards and the lives of many women.
