Who are ‘the League’ you ask? Dr. Louise Greenstock, the Victorian Crusader for the League wrote for us as we entered single figures in the days counting down to the event…
We are all buzzing with excitement at the collaboration of the year coming to Melbourne in just over one week’s time! Under Emily Hehir’s leadership the TEDx LittleLonsdaleSt Women event will see ambitious, inspiring women flocking to the Wheeler Centre to hear from some of the most iconic women in Australia to engage in an Honest Conversation. To top it off, the League of Extraordinary Women are hosting the event’s official after-party! (Grab a ticket: http://leaguevipxmas.eventbrite.com/)
The League of Extraordinary Women was founded in 2011 by four business women: Liz Atkinson, Sheryl Thai, Marie Cruz-DeVera and Sarah Riegelhuth. The four founders were driven by that niggling feeling that somewhere out in the big city of Melbourne, there had to be other women just like them. Women who ran their own companies, women who had big dreams for their first business, women who were a similar age and going through the same problems and challenges. Over lots of coffee and cupcakes, the League was born. In 2012 the League has grown into a movement of young female entrepreneurs joining as members in rapidly growing numbers, and attending stimulating breakfasts and glamorous evening events. The League founders are so committed to supporting their community that they took on Crusaders in each of it’s native States, QLD, NSW and VIC. Chiquita Searle (QLD – Chi The Label), Samanatha Dybac (NSW – Sammway) and Louise Greenstock (VIC – Mind & Motive) took on the role of ambassador for their own State and Samantha Gash came on board as the awesome National Crusader. The hottest announcement yet is the welcoming of Monica Kade (@MonicaKade) as Change Crusader for the League too!
The League is a truly exciting group to be involved with. The founders are genuinely impressive, warm and supportive. The events are well-organised, stylish and attract the most relevant and inspiring speakers. Month after month there are new initiatives announced with 2013 set to see the League explode into new areas and continue to put members first.
This collaboration behind these events is a unique opportunity to rub shoulders with hundreds of women out there doing something cool, making their mark, and keen to collaborate. The after-party will provide others who did not make it to the sold-out main event, to come along and be seen, be heard and make new friends. In addition, there is still a few days left to be included in the exclusive League Connect book! This little book is a directory including the bios and contact details of women attending the event. If you want the women attending the event to see your name and learn about your business, grab ticket to the after-party before Monday 26th November at 6pm and select the Admission + The League book! There is such a buzz around women in business at the moment that this is truly the place to be! Come on ladies, grab a ticket right now http://leaguevipxmas.eventbrite.com/
