Ruth-Ellen Danquah

Ruth-Ellen is a former business development manager for Expedia Group where she generated £115 million in new business sales. In 2009 Ruth-Ellen discovered her son was on the autistic spectrum. Then in 2012, Ruth-Ellen discovered she was dyslexic, dyspraxic later on ADHD, and autistic and was excited to learn about other people who were on their neurodivergent journey. So she created a platform for neurodivergent individuals to come together to collaborate and share their success stories.

There was also a passion for helping herself and others heal so she could stop operating from the wounds from years of masking from trying to “fit in”. She is certified as a consultant, trainer, speaker, master coach, hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner, Dialectical Behaviour Therapist, EFT Practitioner, life coach, Reiki Master, Mental Health First Aider and self-taught website developer.
