Virginia Briggs, the CEO and Managing Partner of Minter Ellison, will be presenting an exclusive keynote session at the Women in Leadership Summit 2022 in November. Her session will focus on what’s more important – sponsors or mentors?

Virginia knows what it’s like to have role models, mentors and sponsors and the impact they’ve had on her career. She comes from a legal family and has had great support to draw on throughout her career from personal and professional spheres including her industry and client involvement outside the legal profession.

As a Champion of Change and member of Chief Executive Women, Virginia is a strong advocate for creating opportunities for women to excel.  In this session, Virginia asks which is more important for leadership success – sponsors or mentors, reflects on her own career, and how she’s forging a culture of mentorship and sponsorship within her organisation.
