Ruma Biswas

Executive Coach & Facilitator

About this coach

As a highly motivating coach,  she brings back 5 years of cross-cultural experience in high performance communication coaching from Latin America to HK. She is especially appreciated by millenials and female leaders, recent expats and career chargers for maximising their performance, credibility and professional opportunities, as she enhances their EQ, thought clarity and communication effectiveness.

Her versatility and ability to build trust quickly earned her popularity across industries (FMCG, Pharmaceuticals, Finance, Public sector, Non-Profit e.g. Unilever, Bayer, GE, the UN), professions (HR, Sales, Lawyers, project managers) and seniority (C-Suite to first time managers) etc.

Her area of expertise and passion are high performance communications, cross-cultural work, women’s professional development, mindful leadership, meditation in business, emotional intelligence, interpersonal relationships, paradigm coaching, career growth and relocation planning.

As a HK-born Chinese living abroad for 14+ years, her real life experience of a foreigner working across cultures lends diversity to her results-focused coaching. Her mission is to help others know themselves, find purpose, and gain courage to lead change. She is passionate about improvement, learning and growth. With her contagious positivity, critical thinking and perceptivity, she challenges assumptions and maximises clients’ unique potential.

Before coaching she had a track record in innovating to generate business performance improvements, from managing a multi-stakeholder hotel renovation project to expense management of US $ 100 M at IBM.
