About

BUILDING CONNECTION

After two decades as a CEO and visionary entrepreneur in my trendy Nordic island — Iceland, I spent a decade in the New Mexico desert — Santa Fe — in mentorship and training in indigenous and other wisdom traditions, the power of presence, energy and mindfulness practices, and the universal principles of Conscious Leadership.

A PHILOSOPHY FOR THE NEW VISION

Since then I have been on the vanguard of the new business paradigm thinking, empowering conscious leaders,  and the co-creation of better workplaces. My life is dedicated to service by inspiring, empowering, educating, and training purpose-driven entrepreneurs and the world's next generation of leaders, to pave the way for the consciousness economy and harmonious coexistence of our people and our planet, doing good and making a profit.

audience experience

“When I attended a women-focused business seminar co-lead by Runa Bouius. I was half expecting a very touchy-feeling presentation about women empowerment but hoped for much more. To my delight, Runa did not disappoint. She took the stage, and was as equally supportive and encouraging, as she was direct and no nonsense. I appreciated her down-to-earth leadership style, and look forward to hearing more of her sage advice at future events.”           - Stella McShera, Founder & CEO Equallet, Santa Monica, CA, USA

“At a recent ‘Leadership Masterclass’ organized by PWC in Aruba, Runa was the keynote speaker and moderator. The EQ program she designed and set forth was of great interest. I believe it to have excellent value and relevance to today’s leadership, and I would definitely endorse any modern organization (or aspiring to be modern!) to engage in this program. Runa made sure her audience was on the tip of their chairs, wanting more and willing to participate in all activity!”          -  Patrick Melchoirs, Destination Service Manager at Aruba Tourism Authority, Aruba

“Runa has facilitated two sessions for my LA’s Westside Association of Talent Development meetings. She is an amazing facilitator who designs her sessions in a way that encourages involvement through activities and by facilitating powerful discussion. She also presents interesting topics related to mindfulness that are thought-provoking while still providing practical techniques and strategies. Participants left highly energized and wanting to learn more. I highly recommend Runa as a speaker and facilitator.” - Rachel Karu, CEO, Stepping Into More & President ICFLA

“Rúna brings a remarkable blend of poise & quintessential professionalism along with an unflinching commitment to her work. When she stands in front of a room – she owns it. Her exceptional gift for facilitating raises the group’s level of awareness and centers them to focus on the deeper questions. The resulting insights are more meaningful, valuable, and rewarding for everyone present.” ~ Beatrice Felix, Principal at Pivotal Mindset, CA, USA 

“I highly recommend Rúna Bouius as a guest speaker or facilitator for your next event or corporate retreat.
