About Raf

Raf Adams  is a practical philosopher and has been helping high achievers align their internal and external self and find their path in life since 2010. He has been living in China for 10 years, running workshops and seminars for Fortune 500 companies helping leaders to close the GAP. He is a certified coach and co-founder of GLO

Raf made a career transition in the financial downturn in 2008 as an expat to a new industry in a new geographic location without any network rebuilding his life and career path. He found his purpose in life in the process and he was able to increase sustainable levels of happiness and close his GAP between his external (SUIT) and internal self (MONK).

Raf is now on a mission to help other leaders achieve the same. To live a life that balances the internal and external self so they can fulfilled within and successful (whatever it means for you) externally.


Here’s what Nicholas Huang, former General Manager of Nike Golf Greater China and Oakley China had to say about his mentoring program

The suited monk “speaks” to you. Written in an engaging, conversational style, the weighty matter of finding your life’s purpose has been decoded and broken down into some simple, easy to practice steps. Raf’s life journey model has been drawn from his and his workshop participants rich (and real) experiences and this is what makes it powerful and convincing.

Everyone who wants to enjoy life to the fullest should read The Suited Monk. Raf’s Life Journey Model is a simple yet brilliant framework to help us understand why joy is not deducted from material wealth and we should strive for inner peace and happiness. Reading The Suited Monk, I rapidly identified my own journey to bridge the gap between the inner and external world, which I will now accelerate to the fullest. Raf is a hero who will continue to affect positively the lives of his readers.
Peter Buytaert, CEO GLO
