“I recommend EdpowerU and Shubika Bilkha, leadership coach, who is transparent and accessible and helped us working with people’s natural strengths to mould them into strong leaders”
Karan Bajaj, Founder, WhiteHat Jr/Byjus Future School
“We were at a difficult juncture last year and looking for a partner who had the emotional maturity and sensitivity to help us deal with the situation in the most graceful manner possible- and we found the “perfect partner” in EdpowerU! It has been an absolute pleasure working with you over the last few months for the “In This Together” – our Small Group Sessions.
Amongst everything that you did, what stood out the most was your ability to navigate challenging conversations sensitively and thus create a space for our members to share and come away richer.
While this is only the beginning on an ongoing journey to build a resilient workforce, collaborating with you has been a right step in this direction.
On behalf of the team, I would like to thank you for the time and effort put towards the intervention. We look forward to an ongoing partnership!
Amar Sinhji, Executive Director HR, Khaitan & Co
“We, at FoxyMoron engaged EdPowerU to run 2 programs with Shubika. We ran the Executive Development Program (EDP 101) for our managers across the board, in all 3 cities as well as ran individual leadership coaching for senior leaders of the organisation. With the EDP, we saw great traction with our managers who were instantly able to connect with Shubika and her mentorship style. We have seen a remarkable change in their own personalities with each person becoming substantially more conscious and self aware about who they are and what their impact on their surrounding is. Our leaders too, have benefited immensely from their individual leadership sessions with Shubika through regular interactions that have been able help align individual objectives and organisational objectives to create an inviting environment for self and team over a period of time.
I found Shubika’s engagement style to be very hands-on and involved because of her in-depth preparation for each unique situation and her personal investment in each individual’s personality type. Her process is a perfect blend of methodical and personal where she builds a warm rapport with her clients. I found Shubika’s conduct as a business woman to be extremely professional to work with and do recommend her and EdPowerU to businesses that are in high stages of growth and in need for change management interventions.”
Suveer Bajaj, Co-Founder, FoxyMoron and Zoo Media
“Shubika coached me in an important phase in my life when I was trying to transition to a leadership position. She helped me understand how what I perceived as strengths could become roadblocks to becoming an effective leader and gave me knowledge and tools on how to become more effective and all-rounded as a leader. She also gave me pertinent solutions and examples which helped me navigate situations where I previously struggled. Her guidance and techniques have helped me immensely in my professional journey”
Gaurav Chowdhary, Vice President, Brookfield Asset Management
“A very effective leadership training program curated by EdpowerU. Not only is the session interactive but the personalized approach will yield results. A must do for all organizations!”
Rahul Bhatnagar, Head HR, The Pittie Group
“After 18 tears of working at Sodexo I was nominated as a part of the growth plan to go through leadership coaching with Shubika Bilkha.
Though I started with some hesitance, I got truly inspired with the way Shubika structured those sessions. In each session she unearthed a different potential of mine and made me believe in myself as a leader. She changed my whole perception of what I believed as my weakness to be a source of my strength.
The Hero’s Journey session was very interesting and inspiring which made me realize the importance of staying positive.
Other sessions like decision making, the importance of coming out of the comfort zone, strategic thinking, looking at things from different perspectives are very useful and memorable sessions.
K. Devaraj, AVP, Sodexo India
“Had an opportunity to experience the 3 day long Women in Leadership Program with Shubika Bilkha. She was an amazing coach throughout the session, had the magical capability to bring out the best in everyone and hold the crowd together.
It is my pleasure to give Shubika Bilkha my highest recommendation as a Leadership and Performance Coach and Proficient Facilitator”
Rumana Sharmin, EHS Manager, British American Tobacco (BAT)
I consider my leadership coaching experience with Shubika as one that was deeply transformational. The way she engaged participants, allowing them to be their authentic self was incredible. All the sessions she facilitated for senior women leaders were rigourous, relevant and revelatory. If you are looking for a coaching partner to bring about ‘progress’ in its true sense, then you have found the right one here.
Krishnaveni Nagarajan, Head- Securiy, Natwest Group

– Ripanka Kalita, Creative Director
“There’s a leader in each of us. It just needs finding. That’s what stayed with me after a dozen or so sessions with Shubika. Mind you, this is not what she coached me on. This is my take away. What she did with me was as simple as it was magical. She ushered me into an elevator. We descended into the depth of my mind. Each time the doors slid back, I saw a performer, a teacher, a problem-solver. The elevator kept going down, opening at every level. A kind soul, a thinker, a person with a sense of humour. What I didn’t see was a leader. And then there it was, quivering in a corner, cold and uncomfortable. Leadership wrapped in damp layers – the fear of failing, the fear of letting down those who look up to me, the fear of being judged. In that last session with her, I stood there starring at my leadership, face to face. It was a moment of silent epiphany. In that moment I knew what I had to do. I can’t thank Shubika enough. Thank you for arguably my life’s most invaluable journey.”
– Porus Jose, Creative Director
“Shubika has coached me and she is bang-on with it. She understands you well, deep-dives as you keep progressing with each session. I have been able to bring instrumental changes post these 5 sessions with her and the same have been noticed by people in my personal and professional life. Thank you Shubika! Here’s to me #unstoppable :)”
– Aparna Madan, Head of Account Management
“Shubika helped me to analyse business and personal challenges using different perspectives and tools. Very professional experience”
– Chris Higgins, Chief Analytics Officer and Business Head
“Shubika recently coached a number of my employees. I was impressed by her commitment and her attention to detail right from the start. Feedback from the people she coached has been extremely positive. Shubika brings a great combination of process and the “right” approach, together with a heartfelt desire to connect, empathise and drive change, and people immediately warm to her open and inclusive style. The millennial age group is a tough one to connect with. Thanks to the strong results from the initial set of Shubika’s coachees, I am extending this coaching programme across the company.”
– Heather Gupta, Group HR Director MullenLowe Lintas & President, AMC
