2021 General Education Seminar

Seminar
Location: The Epping Club, Epping NSW 2121

This annual seminar is part of our commitment to ongoing education for clients, in which we bring you topical and interesting information that is relevant to Australia and the world. They are a great way to stay up-to-date, network with fellow Profile clients, and keep in touch with our staff who are managing your investment and protection strategies day-to-day.

As NSW emerges from its longest lockdown, we see individuals, companies and governments reflecting on the last two years from a myriad of angles. We continue to examine what we have learned (and are still learning) and how we have changed. Profile’s seminar examines a few of the learnings from the COVID-19 pandemic through different eyes – from the viewpoint of an investment manager to the counsel of an author who has thrived after unfathomable suffering in her early life.

We are privileged to have the expertise of our asset manager, Willis Towers Watson as well as the moving journey of author and CEO, Aminata Conteh-Biger.

Rising Heart

Aminata Conteh-Biger, CEO and Founder of The Aminata Maternal Foundation

In 1999, Sierra Leone was in the midst of a brutal civil war where mindless violence and the rape of young enslaved women were everyday weapons. It was also where rebel soldiers snatched the young Aminata Conteh-Biger from her father’s arms, then held her captive for months.

After she was released, and still a teenager, she was put on a plane and flown to Australia to start afresh as a refugee. It is here that she has proudly built a life, while never allowing her trauma to define her. Yet it was a near-death experience she suffered during the birth of her child that turned her attention to the women of Sierra Leone – where they are 200 times more likely to die while having a baby than in Australia. So she set up the Aminata Maternal Foundation, then returned to the land of her birth to help. This is her story.
