Claire Jung

Claire Jung is an executive coach with The Fast Forward Group. Her sense of adventure has driven her to constantly challenge her limits in a banking career which spans almost two decades. She has held a variety of regional management roles across compliance, learning & development, employee relations, and leadership coaching.

Claire was the Lead Coach and Performance Excellence Consultant for Asia Pacific at The Royal Bank of Scotland plc (RBS) responsible for implementing the bank’s global leadership program in Asia, and supported leaders to develop leadership excellence and build high-performing teams. Prior to this, Claire was Head of Compliance for RBS Hong Kong and has also worked at Bank of America, Macquarie Bank, Morgan Stanley, and the London Stock Exchange.

As a Brit living in Hong Kong with her Korean husband and two, third-culture children, Claire knows that an ability to understand and shape our habits allows us to thrive in diverse environments. She helps technical experts become great leaders through raising self-awareness and embedding leadership habits so that they become more fulfilled and have more impact in their organizations.

No matter who she is working with, her approach is guided by three beliefs; the power of habit; happiness in life leads to success at work, and real change involves discomfort.

Claire is a Certified Coach (ICF PCC), a Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) practitioner, a Workplace Big 5 practitioner, trained in Cohen Brown Sports Coaching for Business and trained in Positive Intelligence and Mental Fitness. She has coached and facilitated training for executives at RBS, Morgan Stanley, MUFG, Freshfields, Credit Suisse, Linklaters, Mayer Brown, Bank of America, BNP Paribas, Black Sheep Restaurants, Schindler, Sasa, Hilton Hotels, and Medidata, among other multinational companies.
