In March 1979, Leigh Cunningham's 17-year-old brother, Paul, was killed in a motorbike accident. Afterward, her family imploded, and Leigh's other brother, John, driven by the pain of his loss and guilt, embarked on a course of self-destruction. He succeeded a decade later at a point in his life when he had finally found peace and happiness. Leigh has written the book, The Glass Table, to help others who lose a sibling. Leigh is a lawyer by profession, but the majority of her career has been as a senior executive for various public companies in Australia. For five years while living in Melbourne, she was the CEO for the Institute of Arbitrators & Mediators Australia, holding a concurrent position as the Secretary-General of the Australian Centre for International Commercial Arbitration. After leaving Melbourne for Sydney, she was the Executive Director for the Australian Institute of Project Management. For a short time after she arrived in Singapore in 2004, she was Director, Operations & Finance, Asia, for a business unit of PricewaterhouseCoopers. Her earlier years were with a law firm in her hometown of Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. Married for 26 years, she lives in Singapore with her husband, Steve.
