Yesterday evening, we were honoured to invite Former Chief Justice Madam Beverley McLachlin to come speak with the members of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong. Through this session, we had the opportunity to learn about the highlights and obstacles she faced as the first woman to hold the position of the Chief Justice of Canada and what she has learned from that experience.
Members left feeling inspired by the humility, mindset and passion that Madam Beverley possesses and gained full understanding as to why she is widely regarded as one of the most influential and impressive people Canada has ever known.
Thank you to our fantastic emcee of the night, Amelie Dionne-Charest, and our interviewer, Louise Barrington, for guiding the evening seamlessly. Thank you to Jeff Nankivell, Consul General of the Consulate General of Canada in Hong Kong and Macao, for joining and speaking with us.
