Shanghai Office Hosts its Inaugural Women’s Forum Client Event

On October 19, the Shanghai office held its inaugural Women’s Forum client event. It was our honor to have Ruby Chen, the Co-Founder and CEO of CNEX Studio and CNEX Foundation, a non-profit organization focusing on documentary production, as a keynote speaker to share her inspirational career and life stories.

There was a very interactive Q&A followed by the presentation. Our clients made good reflections of their own career development and personal growth.  The event ended on a positive reminder of the importance of building a strong network within our profession, which would not only open up new doors, but also allow us to live up to our full potential.

The event brought together a group of senior in-house counsel, business executives and alumni from AstraZeneca, JP Morgan, KPMG, Lilly Asia Ventures, Medtronic and UBS, etc. Some feedback we have received: “I did enjoy the event and the inspiring sharing session provided Ruby. Thank you for organizing this!”  “The event was really meaningful. I especially appreciated how honest and open Ruby was when discussing her own experience. I hope to attend more of this type events in the future!”
