Maggie Liu

Operations and
Business Development Manager

Maggie Liu is a Chinese national who has been working within the medical industry for almost a decade and a half. After graduating from Beijing Institute of Technology, she chose not to work in the field of her major, which was Material Sciences, as she discovered that her interest was people, and working with people, not materials.

She started working with International SOS (ISOS) in 2007 as a customer service coordinator. Between 2007 and 2010, she worked within that organization in various roles, rotating within front desk, call center, cashier and the specialist desk (coordinating patients for the specialist doctors) during that period. She then left ISOS to the Netherlands for a different opportunity.

After working for 3 years in a Company managed by GE, and doing her Dutch Language Course aboard, she returned to China. Due to her previous performance, ISOS welcomed her back, and in 2013, she began working within their Assistance Center in Beijing. During her time in the Assistance Center, she learned more about medical assistance and various other disciplines, in supporting foreigners and their medical needs across the globe. She also learnt the importance of raising the standard of the organization, as well as the individuals they served.

After ISOS clinics in China went into partnership with Raffles Medical Group (RMG) from Singapore in 2015, Maggie had a decision to make. She needed to decide if she should stay with ISOS and focus on the other sides of the company, or go with RMG and continue to focus on the clinic side. She decided to go with RMG and the clinic side of the business. With this decision, she was tasked with taking responsibility for the Mental Health and Dental Departments (Allied Health Services) in 2015, a role she held until 2017. During this period, she was able to build a deep connection with the clinicians and patients, who became like family to her. She also learnt more about “human touch”, the importance of connection and being there for others. It was also quite a unique experience for her to work as Patient Services Team Supervisor, supporting both her team, as well as other departments, in assisting patients and clients.

In 2017, she was promoted to Patient Services Team Assistant Manager, and in fact became the first Patient Service Assistant Manager in Beijing. In this role she was tasked with taking charge of and leading the Patient Services team, reporting directly to the Clinic manager. She then changed her focus from being a star within her department, to assisting her team in shinning and being outstanding. As a result of her efforts, and with the support of her team, in 2018 her team won the award for Best Team at the Beijing Clinic.

In 2019, she was promoted to the role of Patient Services Deputy Manager, and her focus was not only keeping the team running, but also to support the entire clinic system. This was accomplished through the provision of new programs, together with the operations team. During 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic was impacting the lives of many, Maggie and her team had to contend with a number of changes beyond the pandemic. They had to manage the clinic during a pandemic, dealing with not just the public stress but internal stress within the organization, while managing the transition of the Beijing clinic upgrading to a hospital, which included changes in the business model. Through her leadership and that of others, they were able to navigate all these challenges.

She decided to leave RMG at the end of 2020, as Raffles was becoming a 24-hrs hospital, and she believed her professional skills, working experience and strength might not fit within the new business model. She therefore joined a Top-20 Life Insurance Company as their Senior Business Development Manager in Corporate Solutions. During her time there, before joining CALM International, she focused on providing her best to her corporate clients and their staff. As a result, she quickly established a trusting relationship with not just her team, but also her corporate clients, guiding them through joyful as well as stressful events and moments, as it was still a pandemic period. This new experience has also guided her in having a broader view of the world and people.

Maggie believes it is an honor for her to join CALM International, working with Dr. Hyatt and his professional team again. When Dr. Hyatt was at ISOS and RMG, Maggie was his right-hand woman who handled just about everything for him and his department, and as such he was eager to have her join CALM International. Maggie’s new Role as Operations Manager, is to manage the operations team, the operations side of the company, and also establish trust between CALM International, its customers and clients. Additionally, she will assist the business development team in having more and more organizations recognize the importance of mental health and wellness, and that CALM International is the premier organization in Asia to assist with this. We believe that support is needed, not just for the patient/client, but also their support network, which comprises of family and friends, and even colleagues at times. After all, each individual deserves to be respected and loved, and our tagline “Wellness Begins with You” is not only a sentence, it is indicative of a lifestyle we have the power to choose.
