WHEN: Tuesday, 11th December 2018

TIME: 6.00pm for a 6.30pm Start - 7.30pm

TOPIC // Masters of Import - Doing Business Internationally

As the world becomes increasingly connected, there are more opportunities than ever before to source from and sell to, overseas markets. So how to go about setting up business operations to make the most of these opportunities? Running a business can be challenging enough, but how challenging does it get when your key relationships exist in different countries, timezones and languages?

Join us for an inspiring evening as we hear from our star-studded lineup of female entrepreneurs who have been doing business internationally since Day 1. They’ll share their experiences of setting up international supply chains and the success & frustrations that these business models inevitably create.

A big thanks to our event partners: Red Bull & Bloom Sparkling Tea will be on hand to provide some delicious non-alcoholic beverages!

Hayley is the founder of The Sheet Society, a fashion & quality driven bedding brand based in Melbourne. After spending years in the fashion world, Hayley brings the same fashion mentality into the bedroom. All pieces are sold separately so new season colours and be paired back with old favourites and your linen cupboard is built on like your wardrobe.

Jericho Cleary (Host) // Founder, Bountie | Head of Strategy, #CorporateAdvice | Melb League Ambassador

Jericho is a passionate founder, speaker & startup advisor. Jericho launched her career with Red Bull at university and went on to pursue a seven-year global marketing career with the brand that would see her living, working & leading large teams across Asia, Europe and the Pacific by the age of 25.

Becoming increasingly concerned about climate change throughout her mid-twenties led Jericho to question her entire existence; especially her career trajectory. Jericho became both determined to create impact through her work and fascinated by those who were turning their social purpose into a livelihood. This fascination led her to founding Bountie, a curated podcast that shares the tales of purpose-driven people who are making an impact in the world through their careers. Jericho also made the leap to startup advisor in early 2018 and now puts her near-decade of experience in innovation & strategic marketing to use by supporting founders & social entrepreneurs with their early-stage ventures.

THE LEAGUE//

If you’re a female entrepreneur or thinking of owning your own business, this Meet Up is the perfect setting to meet other women in the same boat. This is not a networking group – we’re here to have real conversations and make real connections.

What do we mean by real? Well you know when you walk into a room and feel welcome even when you don’t know anyone? Or when you share experiences with someone and they say “me too!”? How about when you share tough times with someone and they don’t try to give you the advice to fix it but rather - they just get you. This is what happens at League of Extraordinary Women Meet Ups.



____________________________________________________

SOME RULES we’d like to point out.

1) Tickets are $25 (+booking fee), or free for League members. Now, it goes without saying that the free tickets are for League Members only, so please only select that ticket type if you are a paying League Member – League membership is $15 per month, and gives you access to free Meet Ups in addition to loads of members only content on the members portal. If you’re not a member yet then you can join via the link below, or just purchase a ticket.

2) Please only register for this event if you plan on going. I know some people will grab a free ticket and then decide last minute that they’re too lazy to go – don’t be one of these people. If you commit to something, commit to it - we want to meet you!

3) If you’ve never been to a League event, there’s a reason why we don’t use the “N” word and use the word “connecting” instead. It's because of the negative connotation of soliciting, selling and business card swapping. Bleh, no one wants to go to an event to talk to someone for 20 minutes only to realise you’re being sucked into buying some powdered thick shakes. We are here to connect authentically and honestly – share stories and experiences, learn from each other and respect each other. Magical things WILL happen and people will seek you out to buy from you when you work from an honest heart space
