Amal AlNoaimi
Ambassador of Responsible Business, The Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel, Residence & Spa

Congratulations on being selected as the Ambassador of Responsible Business for the hotel. What does this role entail?
Thank you! I have several responsibilities in my new role. Firstly, to be consistent with developing and implementing responsible business practices throughout the hotel by ensuring a safe and welcoming environment for our guests and employees, actively contributing to the betterment of our communities and promoting sustainable practices within the hotel. The Radisson Hotel Group (RHG) has set a goal for all its hotels to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and that is precisely what we will strive for.

How do you feel about your new responsibilities and what do you hope to achieve?
I am driven by a genuine passion for making a positive impact wherever I go, so I am very motivated and deeply committed to driving meaningful and purposeful change. I believe that practising responsible business will not only contribute to the hotel’s longterm success but, most importantly, also create a culture that benefits the hotel and contributes to a better world for future generations. By prioritising sustainability, ethical practices and social responsibility, I aim to foster a positive environment that aligns with these values.

When you’re not championing responsible business, what do you enjoy doing in your free time?
During my free time, I enjoy a variety of activities. The gym is my go-to for staying active and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Abstract art enables me to express myself visually, drawing inspiration from sunsets and seascapes, allowing me to detach from reality and pour my energy into creating art. Working in marketing sparked a profound interest in videography, which I am eager to improve upon. Lastly, spending quality time with loved ones is of utmost importance to me, as these moments bring me happiness and fulfilment. Overall, my free time is a balance of fitness, creativity, relaxation and nurturing relationships with loved ones.
