Aimi Ramlee believes that technology and remote working are the keys to improving economic distribution to more remote communities, but also as a major tool to enable women to access work and financial freedom that can be out of reach for those having to care for dependents or are confined to their homes. Through her work developing technology for companies to enable remote working, she hopes to normalize unconventional work environments that can not only help improve women’s lives but also reduce the environmental impact of the traditional workplace.
Aimi is the Co-Founder of Tyne Solutions – an award winning tech consultancy specialising in bringing world changing ideas to life. She is currently also a Knowledge Management Officer with the ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights, leading their Business and Human Rights working group and using technology to enable NGOs and non-profits to collaborate from remote locations.
Aimi is an active advocate of gender equality as well as cultural and natural heritage conservation. Aimi is the 2018 Brunei Country Lead and Head of Digital & Comms for the US-ASEAN Women’s Leadership Academy Alumni Network, YSEALI Women. Aimi also regularly speaks on Women’s issues in Brunei and mentors female entrepreneurs through local and international mentoring programmes.
Prior to Tyne Solutions, Aimi worked in financial publishing in Australia, London and Hong Kong. In March 2018, Aimi was personally invited by the then Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, to be part of an exclusive Emerging Leader’s Roundtable meeting in Sydney during the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit, where she was invited to give the official response to the Prime Minister on behalf of the delegation of emerging leaders. In 2017, she was selected as one of Lyfe Media's 33 Brunei Women Under 33 to Watch and an Australian-Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Emerging Leader. Aimi is also a US-ASEAN Women's Leadership Academy Alumna, board member of the WLA Alumni Network, an ASEAN-Japan Women's Entrepreneurship Linkage Program support winner and the Special Prize Winner at the 2016 APEC BEST Awards.
