Women in IR Breakfast

Join colleagues for a substantial sit down breakfast with the stunning back drop of the Perth city skyline and listen to three leading female members of the industrial relations industry, at different stages in their careers and from different parts of the sector, speak about how they came to become involved in industrial relations, the challenges they have faced and the lessons they have learnt.

Speakers include:

Lam Ti, Managing Director of the Ti Group of Companies

Lam Ti  along with her business partner Jamie Michael is a grower and largest exporter of strawberries in Australia. When she arrived in Australia she could not speak English but through dedication, commitment and hard work completed a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Curtin University. With the help of Jamie she set up Ti Produce Marketing Pty Ltd as a marketing business. In 15 years the business has grown to be a $20 million per annum operation growing strawberries and marketing them across the world. Employing up to 400 people during the harvest has not been without its difficulties and challenges as the industry is complicated through the necessity to use labour supply contractors. Lam Ti is a hands-on manager. Her mix of toughness, charm and skill have made her company successful and a leading business woman in this State.


Emma Clements, Senior Employee Relations Consultant of WALGA

With over 15 years’ experience as a senior HR/IR practitioner including working in public transport and security personnel industries across Australia, and State government,  Emma has been responsible for overseeing and delivering strategically aligned HR and IR functions and services, and managing teams of high performing HR/IR specialists and training and recruitment professionals. In an IR capacity a large focus of Emma's work has included managing ER/IR matters, including workplace disputes, enterprise agreement negotiations and dismissals in the Fair Work Commission in a practical and commercially focused manner. Emma is passionate about sharing skills and experience to nurture and develop people, teams and organisational culture.


Eloyise Braskic, Communications Officer of Transport Workers Union

Specialising in journalism, digital marketing and public relations by trade, Eloyise writes the WA Branch’s quarterly journal publication and has great fulfilment in chronicling the Australian industrial relations landscape. Eloyise will speak about her experiences in the union movement and her passion to help change the rules that are stacked against workers to leave a better future for our nation’s children.
