Testimonials for Rabia Siddique

Compelling story, I was riveted for the hour. Rabia is a cool customer and really connected with the Audience"

Woodside Energy

 

Rabia is a truly interesting and engaging speaker. Her personal and professional achievements are extraordinary and an inspiration for young women everywhere. In my view, Rabia's unique experiences as a Legal Officer in the British Army, and the courage and determination she showed in fighting to achieve equal treatment irrespective of her gender, should be shared widely. Rabia provides a powerful example of what an individual can do to fight for equality and ensure that discrimination, in all of its forms, is eradicated.

Rabia was a speaker at our “Women in Leadership” Breakfast held in February 2013. Her talk was entitled “Striving and Surviving”. We heard about the courageous role Rabia played by resolving a hostage crisis in Iraq and surviving being taken captive by terrorists and suing the British military in a case that made international headlines. Her talk was very well received and generated a number of questions from interested members. We can highly recommend Rabia as a public speaker.

Rabia’s presentation was well researched, and eloquently delivered, with humour and emotion and the message she delivered was clear and engrossing, receiving many positive comments from our guests. The courage she has shown in her tenacity and fortitude in her pursuit for justice and equal rights for women is admirable, and women in particular will benefit from her experiences which show the female gender should not be silenced in the face of adversity and lack of fairness.

Rabia Siddique's Biography

History making humanitarian, author and international keynote speaker Rabia Siddique is a power house for change. 

 

Entertaining, powerful and engaging, this best-selling author represents a living example of how each one of us can be a force for positive change in our own lives and those around us.

 

Having survived a hostage crisis in Iraq, Rabia garnered global attention for making the British military accountable for silencing her about her ordeal and role in releasing captured special forces soldiers.

 

Standing up for justice in the face of public ridicule, Rabia’s brave action in suing the British Government for sexism and racism became a catalyst for policy change to ensure a fairer workplace for women and cultural minorities in the British military.

 

Drawing on extensive experience as a former criminal, war crimes, terrorism and human rights lawyer, military career, psychology training and  business, Rabia is also a sought after transformational coach and mentor.  

 

She has provided equality and diversity training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst where her charges included Prince William.

 

A noted media commentator, Rabia’s first book, Equal Justice, is the focus for a feature film.

 

She also has the delightful challenge of being Mum to triplet boys.
