MESSAGE FROM
JOE CHENG
Dear AIA Group MDRT Ambassadors,

It gives me great pride to see such a high-quality group of agents and agency leaders as our MDRT
ambassadors for the coming year.

You have been appointed to be AIA Group MDRT Ambassador for many reasons, but most importantly,
you are leading by example, many of you have qualified MDRT for many years, have achieved Life
Member status and are passionate to continue qualifying throughout your career as a role model. Your
professionalism and commitment are appreciated. Being an ambassador also means you have been
noticed for your dedication to fostering an MDRT culture. By influencing others and helping them to be their
best-selves, you are making a fundamental difference to the future of AIA.

Building MDRT through Premier Agency, Quality Recruitment and High Productivity will enable us to reach
even higher levels of success. MDRT is not simply about recognition; it is about professionalism, continuous
learning, giving and sharing, building a balance of life; and maintaining a long term and healthy relationship
with family, friends and customers.

With your commitment and ability, I know that our agency force will be much stronger and more of our
agents be able to achieve MDRT, then progress towards COT, TOT or become life member.

Thank you for all you have done and will continue to do for AIA.
I wish you all a healthy and successful 2019.

Best regards,

Joe Cheng

in 1989. Because of her husband’s new                 consecutive year, 22-year MDRT and 3-year COT
assignment, she had to uproot herself from        •   Premier Circle – Advisor Level 2017-2018
the place she had called home. With little to     •   Premier Icon – Unit Level 2017-2018

a full-time financial advisor. She fell in love   •   GAMA FLA Silver 2015-2016
with the career instantly.

Marilen’s turning point was during the

saw an MDRT being awarded with a bouquet

made a commitment to make MDRT her gold
standard. More than three decades later, she
is a Quarter of a Century MDRT qualifier, and

  however, she felt that this was not her calling.
  A medical technologist by profession, she
  came to Manila in 2011 to try her luck in the

  dengue vaccine. Even though she was doing
  great things, Tina felt that there was not
  enough personal and career growth for her.

  In 2012, she decided to join AIA as a full-time
  financial advisor – contrary to the medical        ACHIEVEMENTS
  career that her parents had envisioned her to      •   Achieved qualification of MDRT 2019 for
  have. The turning point in Tina’s career was           4th consecutive year
  when her mother was terminally ill, battling       •   3-Year MDRT Qualifying Member
  cancer. Her mother was in a lot of pain, but       •   Premier Circle – Advisor Level 2017-2018
  didn’t want to go yet at that time, fearing
  that she would leave her daughter who was
  still “unsuccessful” in life. When her mother
  succumbed to cancer, Tina made a promise
  that she would qualify as MDRT year after
  year and to help others become one – to make
  her beloved mother proud.
