Session 4: Take a short-cut: seasoned professionals tell 'What I Wish I’d Known'
Last year’s highlight session repeated! Get the benefit of years of experience without having to do the hard yards. Our panel discussion will cover what seasoned professionals wish they’d known when they were starting out, successes and key lessons, plus great tips and ideas for your career. This year’s panellists have diverse career experiences, and will be sharing knowledge and insights gained from working across different countries, industries and sectors.
This year’s star line-up:
Jenny Williamson, Head of Business Development at FB Rice. Jenny worked in a range of BD and marketing roles across legal, accounting and engineering sectors before ending up in IP.
Richard Scott, Director of Marketing & Business Development at Colin Biggers & Paisley, traded the legal sector for senior marketing and BD roles at a Big 4.
Sara Miller, Pitch and Pursuit Excellence Regional Leader for Asia Pacific for Baker McKenzie, moved from the US to Australia to Singapore, becoming a Richmond tragic in the middle.
Chau Nguyen, Business Development/ Pursuit and Digital Specialist, studied aerospace engineering but ended up in business development! She’s currently based in Hong Kong but about to move to New Zealand.
Join us for a not-to-be-missed opportunity to hear these experienced practitioners talking frankly about work, managers, career progression and everything in-between.
