Introducing one of Perth's most entrepreneurial IP attorneys.

By Becky Hansen

Fi Nguyen is our November Member Of The Month. Fi is a talented IP Attorney and Founder and Principal of Girl Friday IP. She supports creative thinkers to secure their ideas and designs. After dipping her toes in the IP commercialisation pool at one of Australia’s largest medical research institutes, she realised that IP still remained a foreign concept for most business owners and start-ups. Girl Friday IP was founded to translate IP legalese and bridge the knowledge gap.

Fi is both giving IP law a radical shake-up, and is your best bet if you ever need to bake a pavlova in a flash. She’s cool under pressure and wowed us all in season three of The Great Australian Bake Off.

What are you reading at the moment? The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. I’m a big advocate that big things start with small meaningful steps. The book is all about how ideas, products and messages reach a take-off point, spread like wildfire and can make a big difference.

Who is the most remarkable woman you’ve ever met? A Vietnamese refugee who arrived in Australia in 1983. She knew little English, sat her matriculation exams, qualified for electrical engineering and was one of two women in her engineering class. She worked two full-time jobs while studying, graduated near top of the class and then went back to uni for her MBA. She is one of the most selfless people I know. This woman is my Mum.
