Ever wished you had more of an ability to ignore unkind remarks or not get offended by criticism. By developing more of a 'Thick Skin' professionals will not be easily upset and can focus their attention on the important tasks at hand. A career in politics is one way to develop thick skin through a need to not let the criticism of your detractors bother you.
Townsville Business's Womens' Circle has enlisted the expertise of Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington to speak about this useful topic.
Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington was born in south-west Queensland. Deb graduated from the University of Southern Queensland with a Business degree and holds a Bachelor of Law from the Queensland University of Technology. As a partner of Kelly & Frecklington Solicitors, Deb concentrated on Family and Property Law also working with multi-generational farming businesses undertaking Rural Succession planning.
Deb was elected to State Parliament in 2012 as the Member for Nanango. She was appointed Assistant Minister for Finance, Administration and Regulatory Reform in 2012, with the major task of implementing the former LNP Government’s red tape reduction plan. In 2014, Deb was appointed to the position of Assistant Minister to the Premier with oversight for the G20 in Queensland. The G20 Leaders’ Summit was the most significant meeting of world leaders Australia had ever hosted with more than 4,000 delegates and 3,000 members of the world’s media attending. The event was commended as the most successful and safe G20 ever held.
Deb was re-elected for a second term in January 2015 and worked in the role as Shadow Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry. Deb was elected to the position of Deputy Leader of the LNP in May 2016 and appointed to the role of Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, State Development and Trade and Investment. Deb was re-elected for a third term in November 2017 and took over the leadership of the LNP the following month.
Deb lives in Kingaroy in the South Burnett with her husband, Jason, and three daughters. She believes strongly that regional communities offer endless diversity and opportunities and are the growth centre of Queensland.
