Tiana Epati // President at NZ Law Society, Fear & Courage.
CHILLLLLS! Today on the show we have the most incredible Korero (discussion) with Tiana Epati, President of the New Zealand Law Society and Partner at Rishworth, Wall & Mathieson. Tiana rarely does interviews so we’re over here pinching ourselves that we had this chat (props to our CCO for making it happen). Tiana is one of NZ’s most highly regarded lawyers, previously working as a Crown prosecutor for over a decade, awarded Lawyer of the Year in 2019, and in October 2018, landing her biggest professional role yet - elected as the 31st President of the New Zealand Law Society.
In today’s chat we speak about dealing with the extra expectations on women when they land senior roles, where she draws her excellence and motivation from, waitressing and the sliding door moment that changed her career, mental health, her role during the global pandemic, mentoring, finding courage despite people saying she would never win the presidential campaign; that she was too inexperienced and too young, pregnancy and career progression, and the one piece of advice she would give to women wanting to advance their career, regardless of the profession (it’s a good one).
You don’t need to be a lawyer to take stock of Tiana’s leadership prowess and everything in between. This is a conversation every ambitious professional should listen to – out now on Spotify and iTunes.
