The Portfolio Lawyer – Maria Da Cunha
Starting life as a barrister and then corporate lawyer at Lovells, Maria is now Director of People & Legal at British Airways, sitting on their Executive Board. She also sits on the board of De La Rue Plc, the world’s largest security paper printer.
Maria will talk of how she combines her full-time legal role with the responsibilities as a non-executive in a very different arena, explaining how and why she added an external role to her life. Members will learn of her recruitment process, her experience of headhunters, the value of networking and how she brings her legal experience to the board table, without simply becoming a further source of legal advice at De La Rue.
