About Aldric T. Toyad

Hi! I’m Aldric Tinker Toyad. Welcome to AldricToyad.com.

Who am I?

If you run a non-profit, a small-to-medium enterprise (SME), or your own professional agency, I help you raise your visibility and assert your credibility through informative and non-manipulative content.

I’m a communications consultant with experience in copy and content writing, digital strategy, social analytics, and digital marketing. I’ve dabbled in broadcasting (under Primeworks Studios Sdn Bhd) and public relations (with SPRG Malaysia & Ogilvy PR Malaysia).

Who Have I Worked With?

I’ve been writing since 2006. Some clients that benefited from my services include a Malaysian Senator (Ahli Dewan Negara), business/industry associations, highway operators, conglomerates, government ministries and agencies, advertising agencies, property development, a private college, a Ministry of Health Malaysia initiative promoting healthcare travel/medical tourism as well as an Anglican parish.

Who am I looking forward to work with?

Are you a…

  • …a small-to-medium sized business?
  • …a professional firm like a legal firm, accountancy firm, or audit firm?
  • …a microenterprise with a headcount less than five involved in real estate, insurance, unit trust, personal finance, or mutual funds consulting?
  • …a non-for-profit organisation, thinktank or advocacy group?
  • …a politician or aspiring politician at the local, sub-national, or national arena?

Let’s connect and discuss how I can support you in your marketing, profiling, and communication strategy.

With regards to geography, I’m open to working with clients across the ASEAN and Asia-Pacific region. Working remotely for clients is aided by the various communication channels at our fingertips.

What about the ‘personal’ side of Aldric?

I currently reside in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. I was born in Miri, Sarawak, to a Melanau father and an Iban mother. After 1995, Mom raised us with the support of her relatives and our Grandmom. I attended school in Miri, Betong, and Kuching. In 2004, I did my Law Matriculation/Foundation in Law (PI005) at Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Kedah and proceeded to the Bachelor of Legal Studies (Hons) programme in 2006. Unfortunately, I dropped out of law school in 2008.

What topics fascinate me?

  • History (Asian & European);
  • Theology (Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism);
  • Politics & geopolitics;
  • Philosophy;
  • Law (constitutional law);
  • Macroeconomics, business, personal finance and investment;
  • Self-improvement and hypnosis;
  • Chinese metaphysics and feng shui.

I enjoy swimming, going to the museums, and travel. I do binge watch YouTube on random topics like philosophy, Chinese history, and management consulting.
