Suzy Cairney has seen a lot of shipping containers in her time but the most memorable one was in the foyer of a French shipping agency, transformed into a giant shark tank.
“That was brilliant advertising, you knew exactly what you were getting into when you negotiated with those guys.”
The former European Legal Counsel for the Port of Singapore, has worked in several in-house roles in Australia and overseas and is now a partner at Sparke Helmore in Brisbane.
She speaks to Alex Correa about the family priorities which saw her choose Australia over her homeland Scotland, how helping build something is better than endless litigation and why her eyes light up when she talks about supply chains!
Suzy also details the diagnosis which changed her approach without ever changing her attitude.
“I would not suggest that cancer was something anybody wants .. however, I'm actually quite grateful for the experience.”
“You do mature, maybe grow into yourself a little bit and I really think that changing perspective is something that has been a surprise for me.”
