The GBWC was absolutely delighted to host Sandra Stuart, CEO of HSBC Canada and Sophia Tsui, Head of Auditing at HSBC for our Dinner Series event in May 2017. Sandra shared her awe-inspiring story of working from a teller position at HSBC to becoming the CEO of the company. She is the first female to run a major bank in Canada. Sandra has spent 33 years at HSBC and has a wealth of knowledge on creating business strategies and navigating the company through the economic cycles in the country.
Sandra and Sophia spoke about their experiences in commercial/corporate banking and auditing and how they successfully navigated office politics and gender stereotypes and honed their personal leadership style. They took the time to thoughtfully answer all the questions from the students and shared their industry wisdom freely. We look forward to hosting them again next year with the new GBWC cohort.
