Queensland Law Society and Women Lawyers Association of Queensland are hosting a breakfast with iconic entrepreneur Thérèse Rein presenting on Challenges for a Global Leader.

The purpose of the event is to recognise the achievements of women in leadership at Queensland Law Society’s Symposium, the biggest event on Queensland’s legal calendar.

Society president Annette Bradfield said Ms Rein’s leadership of her company, Ingeus, demonstrated her commitment to build economic and social value for individuals, communities and nations.

“With her singular focus as a leader, Ms Rein has successfully helped socially and financially excluded people find independence through suitable sustained employment,” Ms Bradfield said.

“Over the years, her company has expanded to address employment issues in partnership with government agencies across the Asia Pacific region, the Middle East, and the UK and Europe.

“We’re looking forward to Ms Rein sharing her insights regarding the road ahead for global leadership and how Australian leaders can overcome current and future challenges.”

Women Lawyers Association of Queensland president Kathryn Finlayson said Thérèse Rein was a deliberate choice for a speaker on this subject, being a highly experienced, much admired and creative business leader.

“Ms Rein has brought her company to the world stage and has developed a valuable understanding of how commerce and leadership works in a range of other countries.

“It’s a rare opportunity to hear a business leader speak who has a tick in every box for comprehensive knowledge of global markets, demonstrating leadership and helping individuals, business and governments overcome complex challenges.”

Ingeus managing director Thérèse Rein said she was looking forward to presenting on sustainable leadership from a global, cross-cultural perspective, and associated challenges
