Entrepreneur in the wings at the G20

And guess what – there’s an entrepreneur in their midst. I’m ashamed I didn’t already know this – being Australian and all – but Aussie PM Kevin Rudd’s missus is a very successful entrepreneur.

Thérèse Rein is a former rehab counsellor who started an employment agency for the long-term unemployed, which now turns over A$175m (about £2 – har har. No seriously, it’s about £84.2m). She’s worth approximately $60m.

The Guardian says: “God knows what she is doing here, she sounds far too important.” Which is nice for the Rudds, given that Kev’s been slagged off by the English press all week…
