Brisbane will play host to Australia’s leading female entrepreneurs in May when the League of Extraordinary Women’s annual Run the World conference kicks off on May 16.
The League of Extraordinary Women’s annual Run the World conference is a one-day event that will see 10 trailblazing business women share their strategies, secrets, insights, learnings and more. This year the event will feature talks from the likes of The Collective Founder and editor-in-chief Lisa Messenger, Showpo Founder Jane Lu (pictured), The Content Folk Founder Nicole Kersh, Nads Founder Sue Ismiel, and Charlton Brown General Manager Petrina Fraccaro. Five further speakers will be announced closer to the date.
While the League of Extraordinary Women host a bi-monthly breakfast series in all major Australian cities, the Run the World conference is the big event in the women’s business network’s calendar.
Brisbane is often seen to be lacking in culture and inspiration for its local entrepreneurs and creatives, yet League General Manager Chiquita Searle wants to challenge this outdated mindset.
“Brisbane is the second largest of our 20,000-strong community,” said League of Extraordinary Women General Manager Chiquita Searle. “And it’s a great community, and really thriving on the entrepreneurship front, but unfortunately tends to miss out on events like this while some of the other capital cities are spoilt for choice.
“We’re thrilled to take Run the World to Brisbane so we can inspire female entrepreneurs to believe in their dreams, follow their hearts, think outside the square, and do whatever it takes to make their dream a reality.”
Run the World is happening at Gardens Theatre at QUT’s Gardens Point campus. To find out more about Run the World visit www.runtheworld.com.au.
