Fauziah Dato Seri Paduka Haji Talib’s social mission can be summarised in 3 key points: to encourage further development of SMEs, to raise more awareness on women leadership and entrepreneurship, and to provide (women) a platform to inspire and encourage women’s inclusion in the economic development of the ASEAN region.

Fauziah Dato Talib plays a high level role on behalf of Brunei in the regional and international arena through her influential positions on multiple platforms. She was the Chair for the ASEAN BAC Brunei Year 2013, and is this year’s Co-Chair for the ASEAN BAC Myanmar Year 2014. Beyond the region, she was a Member of APEC Business Advisory Council (2006 to 2011) with lead roles as Co-Chair of Liberalisation Working Group; Chair of Capacity Building & Action Plan Working Group; and Co-Chair of SMME & Entrepreneurship Working Group, where she facilitated the drafting of a High Principle Voluntary Code of Conduct for the Construction Industry that was endorsed by APEC Leaders in Hawaii 2012.

When she is not busy changing the world, Fauziah Dato Talib wears the hat of a CEO for IQ-Quest Company, a consulting firm providing Advisory Business Services and HR expertise.
