Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council
As Project Director, I was tasked to implemented the Malaysia Year of Healthcare Travel 2020 Campaign, the nation’s first major international healthcare travel campaign with a goal of attracting 2 million medical tourists and RM8 billion GDP contribution. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, we pivoted to digital marketing with rebranded campaign: Malaysia the World’s Healthcare Marvel. My team managed the campaign strategy, activities and content production with a budget of RM16 million.

I enjoy seeing Atiqah in action when presenting physically. The way she explains something and her energy is inspiring, as well as her prompt action even if it's the smallest matter . Atiqah is goal-oriented and is very clear of what she intends to achieve. She is also a effective communicator and able to spread across concise information across teams.

Atiqah was the real engine of the team with her leadership quality with deep expertise, her approach which was very supportive and friendly, and her flexibility in decision making. I appreciate her ability in understanding the local context and acting accordingly. Now I think we are on the right track, this is because of her effort.
H.E. Mohammed Ahmedia, State Minister of General
Ministry of Education, Ethiopia
The thing I personally and the team liked the most was the fact that Atiqah didn’t try to impose on other people. She instead helped people see and figure out how it might work in their context. She was able to find the right balance between challenge and support. She wasn’t too complacent but not pushy either. I have also noted with admiration how she managed to take everyone on board and get them to work for and with her. I have also been impressed by herr work rate and the speed by which she does things.

Atiqah is one of the most wonderful, brilliant, energetic, proactive and hardworking young ladies I have met in my life. She inspired me in the way she kept her diary, tight schedules, follow-ups and many such good things mandated to her. The way she works will long live in my memory.
