Standard Bank Group: Rene Du Preez — Test Your Boundaries When Things Get Scary

As a child of young parents, Rene Du Preez always felt she had to jump right in and give her all with everything she did.

Rene started her career as the only female associate at her first South African law firm in the early 90s. Since then, the GC at Standard Bank Group has become an advocate and mentor for other African women breaking into the field.

Rene shares with us how her experiences in investment and retail banking helped shape her as a leader and a champion for change in the African legal space.
