Women Leaders a drawcard


Cite as: (2007) 81(12) LIJ, p. 19

A crowd of 600, including 170 Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) members, attended the fourth annual Partners in Business Luncheon to hear the views of three high-profile female executives on women and leadership.

The guest speakers were former corporate lawyer Catherine Walter, IT entrepreneur Lyndsey Cattermole and investment banker Paula Dwyer.

Between them, they have been directors of private and public companies, as well as not-for-profit organisations.

The three spoke about their careers, including the board seats they hold, at the October function held at Hilton on the Park.

LIV events manager Susan Long said the annual luncheon had drawn big crowds for female speakers since it began in 2004.

“Whenever we have had a female speaker the numbers have boomed,” she said.

“The majority of the people who attended this year were women, who were obviously keen to hear about the career paths of the speakers and many LIV members who attended also brought clients along.”

The luncheon is jointly hosted by the LIV, the Australian Institute of Management (AIM), Financial Services Institute of Australasia (Finsia) and the Association of Professional Engineers, Scientists and Managers, Australia (APESMA).

Ms Long said LIV luncheons, including the President’s Luncheon series, offered great networking opportunities for lawyers and their clients.
