About Rawan

A truly multi-lingual and multi-cultural executive and leadership coach, Rawan has coached all over the Middle East; her clients come from more than 70 different nationalities. With over sixteen years of international experience gained in FMCG, Manufacturing, Financial institutions, Pharmaceutical companies, Oil & Gas and Executive Education she has coached, trained and mentored hundreds of professionals across the board from C-Suite leaders to middle level managers in English, Arabic and French.

Rawan has lead multiple coaching programs face to face as well as virtually. She is a facilitator of transformation and has worked not only with individuals but with groups and teams as well. She coaches great leaders to help them become even better and dysfunctional teams to become more harmonious and work towards a common vision. She has worked mainly in the Levant and the GCC. Based in the UAE today, she still serves the entire region in addition to countries like Turkey, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Russia, Georgia, Malaysia, Egypt, Morocco, Serbia, Liberia & Cameroun.

For more than ten years in multinationals like TetraPak and Nestlé, Rawan accrued a track record of achievement in business objectives and targets. She led cross-functional teams and guaranteed buy-in on sales and marketing plans for multinational business units. Rawan spearheaded brand development and execution for the GCC region, engaging senior management and satellite teams. As a coach, Rawan has influenced senior executives in Fortune 500 companies like Unilever and Global organisations like the World Bank. Clients comment on her unique ability to use humor and creativity in the midst of being pragmatic and methodical. Energetic, empathetic and knowledgeable, Rawan’s desire is to see leaders improve and her determination ensures she will not give up and will not allow her clients to either.

In addition to being an exceptional coach, Rawan is a workshop facilitator trained in many international programs and a motivational speaker. She finds that there is a perfect marriage between her marketing background and her work as an executive coach and she specializes in personal branding. She has also created several programs to help leaders understand how they are perceived and own the attributes of their personal brand.

Rawan is a passionate writer. She contributes monthly to two magazines published in the UAE: Capital Business and Executive Women. Her style is inspiring and engaging. She writes mainly about leadership, personal branding and often ponders on the many curious aspects of life.

Rawan helped me understand how my authentic leadership could be focused on steering the team and work program through this turbulent time.
