Event Details

The Adelaide Opt In forum will contribute to building the professional confidence that brings about a positive sense of efficacy for professional women in, or aspiring to, leadership roles.  We will explore the personal narratives of 3 professional women who have achieved notable career success and attempt to answer the question "Are we there yet?"

Thea Eszenyi has practiced in the area of insolvency and restructuring since 1986, most recently as Managing Partner of McGrathNicol Adelaide. She has worked in various states of Australia and in Russia, restructuring operations of companies to stem losses and return them to profitability. She has prepared numerous businesses for sale, managed the sale processes and negotiated final sale contracts. Thea was also played a key role in Ernst & Young’s integration with Arthur Andersen.

Thea is one of only 8% of female Registered Liquidators in Australia. Acting as role model for female insolvency practitioners she founded the International Women's Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation in both Victoria and SA. Over the past 6 months Thea has managed the challenging role of identifying the strategy for and the implementation of the wind-down of McGrathNicol’s Adelaide office. She used her professional networks and other resources to ensure that 100% of the staff seamlessly transitioned to new jobs prior to closure last month.

Thea is now on the cusp of a new chapter in her career which, when confirmed, will be another first for a woman…

Emily Mortimer is the Human Resource Manager for the Adelaide office of Piper Alderman. Working directly with the Leadership Team, Emily is responsible for the delivery of strategic Human Resource Management and Operational Management advice. Having studied Economics and Human Resources, Emily prides herself on being able to offer a balanced perspective when aligning strategy and people. Emily lives by the motto ‘The standard you walk by is the standard you accept’.

Prior to her role at Piper Alderman Emily has worked in Executive Recruitment, Local Government and in the Not for Profit sector.

Emily is a National Director of the Australian Legal Practice Management Association as well as the State Executive Chair. She holds a role on the Law Society of South Australia’s Wellbeing Committee and is a representative of her son’s primary school Executive.

Emily is a mum to a cheeky six year old son who she encourages on a daily basis to be a leader of his own virtues whilst still trying to bribe him into liking Collingwood more than Port Power.


Our headline speaker, Minister Penny Wong, is yet to confirm but book now before the inevitable rush! 


During the Panel discussion it might be interesting and timely to explore public reactions to Dr Who's upcoming regeneration as a woman!
