The BrandLaureate Royal Quintessential Brand ICON Leadership Award to Yang Teramat Mulia Dato’ Seri DiRaja Tan Sri Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz binti Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah, Tunku Panglima Besar of Kedah

The Asia Pacific Brands Foundation is sublimely delighted to announce that Yang Teramat Mulia Dato’ Seri DiRaja Tan Sri Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz binti Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah, Tunku Panglima Besar Kedah (Ahli Jemaah Pemangku Sultan Kedah) was awarded The BrandLaureate Royal Quintessential Brand ICON Leadership Award at The BrandLaureate Brand ICON Leadership Awards gala dinner held at The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur on 13th October 2016.

Organized by the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation (APBF), The BrandLaureate Brand ICON Leadership Awards recognize leaders who are in a league of their own and whose achievements have contributed significantly to the development of their countries and communities. Over 700 guests comprising Malaysia’s top corporate leaders, brand owners and leading personalities were in attendance.

During the award presentation, Her Highness Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz was presented with a trophy and glass-framed certificate by Chairman of The BrandLaureate, YBhg Tan Sri Rainer Althoff and President of The BrandLaureate, Dr KKJohan. Plated in 24-karat solid gold, The BrandLaureate Brand ICON Leadership Awards trophy is designed to be refined, sturdy and prestigious. 

With both hands stretched high and standing on a solid base, the trophy reflects the ICON's adaptability and agility to fly with times, bringing in winds of change that transform for the better. Each trophy is a finely handcrafted masterpiece of art intended to reflect the standard of excellence.

Her Highness Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz is an accomplished princess and lady of many firsts.  She is very much respected and admired amongst the rakyat of Malaysia. Receiving her secondary education from the elite Tunku Kurshiah College and Cheltenham Ladies College in Britain, she graduated with a Degree in Politics from Sussex University in 1987. 

Upon her graduation she joined multinational conglomerate, Sime Darby Berhad  and was attached to the Communications, Industrial Relations and Corporate Planning departments. After serving for half a dozen years in the group, Her Highness then moved on to channel her attention on community based initiatives, focused particularly in her home state of Kedah.

With a desire to inspire change and help the less fortunate, Her Highness set up the Sultanah Bahiyah Foundation in 1996, the namesake of Her Highness's late mother and benevolent inspirer. She was duly elected as the charitable foundation's Chairperson which aims include providing educational programmes, interactive sports activities, motivational seminars, health themed programmes and grants to small businesses managed by women.

Her Highness also volunteers with the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) and holds the position of Chairperson of the Kedah branch of the society, is a volunteer and Deputy Chairman II for the Lembaga Kebajikan Perempuan Islam Malaysia (Muslim Women's Action Council), a charitable organization founded by her late grandmother, Her Royal Highness Tunku Puan Besar Kurshiah binti Tunku Besar Burhanuddin, in 1960.

For her outstanding contributions in the fields of social work, Her Highness was conferred an Honorary Doctorate in Philosophy (Social Work Management)  from Northern University of Malaysia (UUM) in October, 2010. Education holds a special place in the heart of Her Highness who believes that education is key to a nation’s development and  every Malaysian irrespective of race or creed has access to quality education.  In this respect, Her Highness is able to fulfill these objectives in her appointment and capacity as the Chancellor of Universiti Utara Malaysia, Pro-Chancellor of National University of Malaysia or Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and Pro-Chancellor of National Defence University of Malaysia.

 As a beacon of inspiration to women, Her Highness was commissioned as the Commander of 513 Territorial Army Regiment in Kedah  and holds the rank of Brigadier General. She is the first female from the royal house in Malaysia to be elected to the position. Her Highness was also awarded the Honorary Maroon Beret (and remains the only female to be thus honoured) by the Royal Malaysia Armed Forces on 31st October, 2011 and awarded 'Royal Thai Army Honorary Parachutist Badge' from Royal Thai Army Special Warfare Command on 12th January 2012.

Indubitably, by genuine virtue of untold dedication and sheer merit, The BrandLaureate Royal Quintessential Brand ICON Leadership Award 2016 truly befits the quintessential calibre of Her Highness in an all-embracing manner, absolutely worthy of timeless honour!

Other Award categories presented during the night includes The BrandLaureate Most Eminent Brand ICON Leadership Award, The BrandLaureate Great Entrepreneur Brand ICON Leadership Award, The BrandLaureate Transformational Corporate Leader Brand ICON Leadership Award, The BrandLaureate Best Choice Industry Brand ICON Leadership Award, The BrandLaureate Grand Master Brand ICON Leadership Award and The BrandLaureate Industry Champion Brand ICON Leadership Award.

In his welcome speech, Dr KKJohan, President of The BrandLaureate highlights the theme for the night,
"The theme for this year’s The BrandLaureate Brand ICON Leadership Award is most appropriate in describing the iconic hero in you, where you dared to leap to the highest, lead to the top and live to the fullest to be who you want to be and who you dream to be. Icons have this dream where he “DREAMS AS FAR AS HIS DREAM CAN TAKE HIM & AS FAR AS HE WANTS IT TO BE” and they show us “ WHAT A DREAM CAN TO DO TO YOU & HOW FAR A DREAM CAN TAKE YOU.” 

"At the end of the day, you are where you are, because YOU DARE to BE. If you retreat and dare not be what you want to be, then you will never succeed and build the greatness in you."
He also added, "I am so proud that tonight, all the recipients of the Awards are icons in their own rights.  You are a class of your own.  You have never given up no matter what the circumstances are. You stayed on and you stayed through.  

"Come what may, you have never lost your focus. You live a driven purpose life. You have the leadership and the courage to stand for what you believe in. You are vibrant, dynamic, energetic, aggressive, innovative and above all, optimistic in life and most of all have the daringness to be what you dream to be."
