More than 100 South-East Queenslander business and health leaders marked the first Children’s Hospital Foundation (CHF) Legacy Advisory Lunch at the Emporium Hotel this month. 

When women support women, true impact happens.

It is no surprise that there was a special type of electricity in the air as the CHF Legacy Advisory hosted the first of their Lunch Series earlier this month – a discussion on pioneering women in business and health.

Over an intimate panel, CEO of Freelancing Gems and CHF Legacy Advisory’s own Fleur Madden spoke to four prominent and influential women on their careers –

  • Emma Covacevich, Chief Executive Partner at Clayton Utz
  • Karina Hogan, Non-Executive Director of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Community Health Service Brisbane
  • Dr Mellissa Maybury, Program Manager at Children’s Brain Cancer Centre
  • Lyndsey Rice, CEO at Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Sharing insights of their challenges, successes and their advice for their younger selves, the panel looked at how to solve some of the issues facing the business and health landscape today.

Their discussion championed two simple themes – building strong relationships and encouraging generosity of all kinds, from time, resources to spirit.

At the Children’s Hospital Foundation, generosity has remained at our heart since our inception in 1985.

But we are only stronger with others like the CHF Legacy Advisory by our side. This philanthropic support is critical to help achieve our ambitions for children and young people.

Established in early 2023, CHF Legacy Advisory is a network of incredible Brisbane leaders that exists to grow connections and foster meaningful relationships within Queensland’s business community.
