International designer joins Women in Law line-up

Resilience continues to rank as one of the most important skills women lawyers need to perform effectively and succeed in the profession.

A new keynote presentation announced for the Women in Law Summit in September will see international fashion entrepreneur Karen Walker CNZM take attendees beyond the boundaries of the workplace as she shares her inspiring story of how she made it to the top in the cut-throat fashion industry, dominated by male designers.

As New Zealand’s foremost entrepreneur, Walker’s story traces her humble beginnings launching her label at 18 with just $100 and two t-shirts, to an international business empire with over 1,020 stockists around the world.

She will show you how to be a resilient and agile leader, what are the skills and characteristics you need to become a success in your industry, and what is the mindset required to smash that glass ceiling.

More information about the session and the Women in Law Summit program is available here.

The Women in Law Summit returns to Cordis Auckland on Tuesday 18 September. The 2018 program features a diverse range of speakers including heads of some of the top law firms in NZ such as Bell Gully, Russell McVeagh and Simpson Grierson; as well as bosses of Ryman Healthcare, and Auckland Council.

A limited number of Super Saver tickets are available at http://womeninlaw.co.nz/
