Miriam Redito Quiambao captivated millions around the world after having won the first runner-up title at the Miss Universe Pageant in 1999 held in Trinidad and Tobago.
Since then, Miriam has steadily stayed in the limelight. She has graced the cover of just about every magazine and entertained us as she started her TV career as an anchor host for the GMA7’s morning show Unang Hirit and later on in the afternoon daily primetime show Extra-Extra with Paolo Bediones.
Her TV career catapulted to greater heights when she and her co-host Paolo Bediones pioneered the first ever reality show Extra-Challenge in the Philippines. Miriam has since been a staple in the hosting arena and entertained us in shows such as the women’s lifestyle show All About You, Palaban, 100% Pinoy, The Beat, Pinoy Meets World and Philippine Realty TV. From the start of her career, she has received several awards to her name such as Best New Female Celebrity 1999, Best Morning Show Host in 2000, Best Travel Show Host 2007, Best Female host in the Aliw Awards in 2008 and 2010. She is currently one of the anchor hosts at The 700 Club Asia, a daily Christian inspirational news magazine show on GMA Network.
She even forayed into acting thru roles in a number of sitcoms and TV drama series such as Idol Ko Si Kap, Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo, Bangis, Second Chances and The Jose & Wally Show; supporting roles in movies include Walang Kapalit, Kimmy Dora 1 & 2. In 2010, she was nominated as Best Supporting Actress for her role as Gertrude in Kimmy Dora 1.
She has also been chosen as a celebrity endorser for top consumer brands like Cream Silk, Lactacyd, Mister Donut, Lip-Out and Olay Total Effects.
With her refreshing presence on and off screen, she continues to reach out and touch base with the Filipino public. Miriam is carving a niche as a much sought after public speaker because of her ability to engage her audience and captivate them with her inspiring stories. She is a gifted story teller who moves her audiences from both corporate, socio-civic, and faith based organizations to cry, smile, laugh and think with her. Miriam has shared the stage with speakers such as Francis Kong, Anthony Pangilinan, Bo Sanchez, Randell Tiongson, Marvin Germo, Will Graham and Ardy Roberto.
She gives talks and trainings on the topics of EXCELLENCE, PERSONAL FINANCE, IMAGE and PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT. She recently spoke at the Asia Women’s Summit 2018 and was one of the global speakers featured in the International Speaker Summit in 2017 & 2018. Her notable clients include AVON Philippines, Deutche Bank, Macquarie Group, Accenture and the Presidential Management Group among others.
She offers her image and personality development training in the corporate arena and has worked with Bb. Pilipinas Charities Inc. (the organizers of the Miss Philippines pagent) to speak before beauty pageant candidates to impart some of her training and experience in the global pageant stage. She is invited frequently as a judge for beauty pageants not just in the Philippines but abroad as well.
Her first book entitled: HE CAN CATCH YOU WHEN YOU FALL, The Continuing Life Story of MIRIAM QUIAMBAO, in an inspiring story of overcoming challenges made it to the National Bookstore Bestseller list and continues to be CSM Publishing’s No. 1 Bestseller since 2015.
In spite of her success, she never fails to contribute to her community. She has been a very active celebrity endorser for Worldvision Development Foundation since 2001 and has served as a Celebrity Advocate Against Child Labor from 2006-2008. She is currently one of the hosts of Christian news magazine TV program, The 700 Club Asia, which airs weeknights on GMA Network.
She is a loving wife to best-selling author, inspirational speaker and award-winning entrepreneur Ardy Roberto. Together, they are loving and caring parents to their two boys.
It was very engaging… very fun and inspiring. We were really happy that the audience really participated in the exercises. I was surprised because I had different expectations. I expected them to be happy but in the end it was beyond that. [They came out of the room] inspired with positive energy… and It was a really great talk.
Thank you Ms. Miriam for a very moving talk during our 14th PhALGA Annual National Conference in Boracay. How I wish I can share with you all the good feedbacks I got from our participants. They only have good words for you. I personally enjoyed your simple, down to earth and casual way of delivering the talk and engaging the audience. By any measure you have touched the hearts of everyone and inspired us all. You have a very nice story to tell, continue to encourage others. Looking forward to next time! P.S. It was thoughtful of you to include your talk quoting my FB post. Salamat!
Thank you so much for sharing your time and wonderful stories with us. It was a such a very engaging and heartwarming experience and lots of people were touched and teary eyed with your inspiring and encouraging sharing of your lives. Again, our deepest appreciation and gratitude for gracing our Accountancy Week Celebration with your presence.
She was thoroughly entertaining to listen to and very inspiring because her examples were based on real life. She was responsive to our questions and she was able to demonstrate mastery and share her experiences about the subject. She is qualified to educate her audience due to her credibility and humility in accepting her mistakes and how one can get back up. I appreciate that the session was delivered in a manner that connected with my faith. I think it will also be helpful if examples taken from other businesses/people were given for us to relate performance improvements in the workspace.
I thought that the talk was effective because you took a straightforward and practical approach by sharing concepts that were very relatable to the audience. Another big plus was how you made it quite personal by sharing a number of insights from your own experience.
Miriam is a revelation to all of us. I knew that she would be able to deliver the theme of our conference but she exceeded my expectations. Contrary to the comments that our people will just be mesmerized by her beauty, they were instead focused on her message. Her talk was so inspiring and interesting as she related her personal experiences with our theme. She delivered it empathically and sincerely. Her 5Ps of Peak Performance is very much aligned with our theme of Sustaining our Winning Ways. It made more profound, relevant and powerful by including another P - prayer.
