Lara Quie (1992), Founder & CEO of Lara Q Associates, won the award in the Entrepreneur category of the 40-over-40 Inspiring Women, Singapore 2021.
Lara read Modern Languages in Christ Church from 1992 to 1996. Originally trained as a corporate lawyer, Lara left the law to become an entrepreneur. She co-founded a successful designer kitchen business before exiting and moving to Asia. There she reinvented herself as the APAC head of Business Development working at several international law firms over the past 8 years.
In November 2019 she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer and went on to receive 7 months of treatment during which she completed her Associate Certified Coach (ACC) accreditation with the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
Having discovered the power of transforming lives through coaching and mentoring, Lara quit her job and established her own consultancy, Lara Q Associates. She now specialises in helping lawyers and law firms achieve their goals.
The 40-over-40 project in Singapore aims to celebrate the female that has taken risks and faced challenges to embark on a new career, try a new path or start a business after her 40th birthday. Click here to read the full article on Lara's award on the 40-over-40 website.
