Congratulations Dr Murray Webster, and Farewell!

by Penny on 11th September 2014

This is a post which I’m writing with mixed emotions. You’ll see why as you read further.

Firstly, I’m delighted to announce that Ruth has now obtained her executive doctorate DBA from the University of Cranfield. The title of her thesis was “What does it take for organizations to change themselves? The influences on the internal dynamics of organizational routines undergoing planned change”. Yet again, my friend and colleague has shown impressive ability, tenacity and focus to obtain her doctorate part-time in less than six years, whilst continuing to write books and run a successful consultancy business. She’s impressive, isn’t she?

Secondly, I’d like to congratulate Dr Ruth Murray Webster on her new appointment from 8th September 2014 as Director, Risk in the Boardroom for KPMG LLP. I’m sure that she’ll do a marvellous job and make a huge impact to clients around the globe. At the same time, this exciting new venture for Ruth means that she’s no longer able to provide risk facilitation support through the programmes of this site. I’m going to miss working together with Ruth but I know that the content and inspiration she’s provided through our book and the videos that we created together will continue to be very useful to many. (Note: I’ve closed our virtual programme for new participants until it will be relaunched in the future as a result of Ruth’s move)

Thanks Ruth – it’s been a fun journey with you over the years. All the best for your future from all of us involved in Risk Facilitation and from me, Penny

Nicely put Penny, and sincerely echoed from Ruth’s many other friends and colleagues in the consulting world. We’re all going to miss her.

It’s good to hear that your important work supporting more effective facilitation of the risk process will continue.
