Ruqya Khan
S.M.I.L.E.™ Strategist at S.M.I.L.E.™ Strategist


Ruqya Khan, or RK as she is known, is an internationally honoured change maker. Leading from chaos to clarity, she sees herself more as a S.M.I.L.E.™ Strategist than a motivational speaker or life coach. She is a wordsmith – she works with words; delivering stories in print and on stage.

RK’s journey is fascinating not due to the many places and people with whom she has shared her message but because of the intention that drives her. As a life coach who has been working with words since more than 19 years now, she understands the importance of communication and what we say to ourselves. Her mission is to enable stress free relationships, effective communication skills and improved outlook on life.

Using her S.M.I.L.E.™ strategy Ruqya catalyses shifts and breakthroughs. With clients and in groups she addresses subconscious limiting beliefs and disrupted pursuits of happiness. Her S.M.I.L.E.™ strategy is both an art and science best mastered through techniques and practice. It breaks down the tedious process of getting from stuck to unstuck (in any area of life - health, academics, in relationships and even at work) into 5 simple but effective steps.

Ruqya has spoken and been felicitated for her contribution at the Women Economic Forum in New Delhi. In 2016 she did a TEDx talk on "The Art of Possibility". She has delivered talks during the Happiness Carnival conducted in Dubai by the Prime Minister’s Office. She coached students and educationalists at the International Youth Leadership and Innovation Forum in Singapore. She is a Master Practitioner of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy®. She is also proficient at the neuroscience techniques of mBraining. 

Passion to express, trust in self and gratitude are her strengths. She is driven by the awareness that though her life is simple and her achievements are always growing – each day she is an example to her children and the many who see her as she is.
