Grace Kagahastian, Founder, Executive Coach and Consultant, PAUSE Life Coaching Services


When you think nobody is watching, CMO Asia is watching...

It's a great honor to be standing on stage with women who made a mark in what they do. As an introverted woman, I seldom want to be in the limelight because my ultimate role as a Professional Coach is to let others shine. Throughout this experience, I am starting to learn that being seen is not something to be ashamed of, but instead, to just relish the moment because your voice, including mine matters.

I now stand by the Filipino pride, who is dedicated to be of service to people and the global community. Thank you, CMO Asia for this recognition as this is a reminder to continue what I've started. Congratulations to all the awardees who make positive change that shape the world around us.♡

I have been to many award functions in India and yet the diversity of this award event was something that really took me by surprise. It was an event which brought together achievers from all walks of life-be it the hospitality industry, media, technology or even philanthropy. I was also happy to see an award function which celebrated so many women leaders as well, myself being one of them. I am grateful to the organisers, especially Dr. Bhatia and Dr. Alok for validating the work, which I do in the space of being a changemaker. Thank you and keep up the good work!

It was an honor to be recognized by CMO Asia and World Women Congress as a distinguished Philippines Woman Leader. I laud the organizers for their endevour to highlight and create awareness on the contributions of women leaders in the workplace and various industries.

Marlene Lucero-Calubag, Executive Director, National Tax Research Center


"For somebody who is used to working at the background, being recognized in such a prestigious ceremony, was a big surprise for me. I was awed by the presence of the organizers, in the sense, global, and the various winners in the different categories- the Brands- contributing to our economy, in terms of revenue and livelihood opportunities, making this part of the world a much better place to live in.

I loved the part where winners were given the platform amplifying their positive impact to the country's economy, their employees, and thriving out especially after the pandemic. And I agree to everything I witnessed in that event being one of their consumers/followers, one way or the other.

I thank the award-giving body; I wished I knew who nominated me to my category of Women leaders, so I could personally thank them and may be ask what made them choose me? Kidding aside, the experience was great, both humbling and thankful for doing what I can to make a difference in my professional world. Of course, no one is perfect, and we cannot please everyone, but that should not stop us from showcasing what is good for the majority of the people under our care.

Kudos to all who made this possible to a public servant like me. Thank you.

Casey Ordoña, Managing Director, EVOLVE Digital Group


Thank you so much for arranging the recognition ceremony. This is truly empowering for individuals like me who are trying to make a possible impact to the world through little ways. More power to your organization and may you inspire more leaders like me.

Dr. Cristina L. Yuson, National President, Girl Scouts of the Philippines


Thank you once again for the Life Time Achievement recognition from your organization and the World Women Congress.

Thank you so much dear team for felicitating me with this prestigious award. I have been rejecting a few awards recently when I felt the focus was mainly on the monetary and other superficial aspects. In a world where there are numerous alternatives to working hard, I am glad I found this team of World Women Leadership Congress & Awards, who does extensive research and focus on the skills and contribution of the individuals over anything.

I was super elated when I received a mail from Dr Aalok Pandit sir, who himself is a very strong and highly ethical leader. I had a few constraints including my unavailability for the award ceremony. He was persistent that his team's effort to find a deserving candidate must not go in vain. It wasn't like 'If one candidate is unavailable, move on to the next'. This team truly believe in acknowledging the efforts of individuals and aim at motivating them to do better for their society. I never aspired for any awards but when I received this one, I felt I must do even better. Being felicitated with this award has definitely enhanced my confidence and I am sure many other women will be motivated to break the limitations tagged on them and kick the obstacles ahead and achieve greater heights. Kudos dear team and I really appreciate your professionalism, commitment and excellence for this beautiful cause.

Vanitha Mani Thevaratnam, Brand Director, Talon Creative Sdn Bhd


"There is no one who is too small to lead positive change or make them; it's all about instilling positive mindsets towards a better tomorrow! I believe that as a woman, we are constantly learning as we grow into our own; as a mom, sister, daughter, niece, friend and career woman. Today, despite the discrimination, hurdles and challenges that have come my way; I am glad that I didn't change the way I wanted to navigate life to its best. Being a leader isn't a title or owning your own office. It is about having the passion to inspire others to dream, learn and continue the legacy to change mindset at the workplace, home and play. Thank you to the World Women Leadership Congress for this humble win that comes with a big impact. Here's towards a continued dedication to elevate women's opportunity at the workplace, at home and in our neighbourhood - cause everyday there is a woman who is stepping up to the plate of positive growth"

Nicole Soo, Chief Executive Officer, Neutra Reflexology Sdn Bhd


Dear Dr. Aalok, First of all I wish to thank you for contacting me personally and inviting me to accept the award.
It is a great honor for me to receive this special award- Malaysia's Woman Leader. This accomplishment is a significant milestone in my life. Thank you to Dr R L Bhatia, CMO Asia, senior leaders, researchers and academicians from the World Women Leadership Congress for this great recognition, it motivates me to continue to work hard. I would like to thank all of you who are believing in me. When you help a woman fulfill her potential, magic happens. Greatness is inspiring others to be their best.
All the best to you & the team.

Dato' 'Aliyah Karen, Founder, AKRAB Resources


"True leaders and changemakers don't do work for recognition, but they do work which is so worthy to be recognised. Recognition is a great form of motivation. They who feel appreciated will go beyond and do more than expected of them. Thank you to the World Women Leadership Congress for recognising and shouting out these individuals who truly deserve the praise for being extraordinary. Today being mediocre is like swimming in shallow waters. Breaking barriers and crossing boundaries towards growth and success is the new norm of an inspiring leader."

Annpurna Pradhan, Ph.D. Research Scholar, National Institute of Technology, Rourkela


Thank you so much!!!

It's an absolute honor and privilege to get the Odisha Women Leadership Award.
