Thank you for attending our Executive Women Series with LK Law

The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & ​Industry​ SA Chapter was delighted to welcome you all to our Executive Women Series with LK Law​ event at the Sofitel Adelaide on Thursday 11 May 2023.

The event began with a keynote speech from The Honorable Dr. Jane Lomax-Smith, Lord Mayor of Adelaide, then we spent a lovely morning listening to an impressive line-up of panellists sharing their experience of distributive leadership. The panel was led by Megan Antcliff and included:

  • Dr Jane Lomax-Smith, is Lord Mayor of the City of Adelaide​ and a doctor with a career in research and clinical pathology.
  • Denise von Wald, FAICD, Board Member at Festival City ADL​, Director at Student Accommodation Association​, Principal and CEO at St Ann's College Inc​ and Director at Adelaide Venue Management Corporation​.
  • Helen Strachan, Legal & Corporate Affairs Director at Pernod Ricard​, board member of boards of DrinkWise​, Australian Grape & Wine​ as well as Chair of the National Wine Foundation​.
  • Olivia Nassaris, Executive Director of The Hospital Research Foundation Group​, Parkinson's SA, NT & ACT and Stroke, director on The Maggie Beer Foundation​ board, and treasurer of Rare Find Foundation​

The speakers shared many lively discussions and individual experiences and were incredibly inspiring and energizing. Thank you to all of them and to Megan Antcliff for being a tremendous moderator as always! 

We would like to thank the Sofitel Adelaide for hosting us (and try really hard to entertain us with music!) and LK Law for supporting this series as a Naming Right Sponsor and without whom this event would not have been possible. 

We will lead two other fascinating discussions with our Naming Right Sponsor LK Law this year, but we do have other sponsorship opportunities for these Executive Women Series. Feel free to reach out to us on should you wish to get involved.
