GUEST SPEAKERS //
Karen Mason // Founder Big Sis
Karen Mason is an experienced Media Presenter/ Producer and has recently launched her very own podcast “big sis”. After a media career in Sydney and Melbourne Karen now resides on the beautiful Gold Coast.
She's worked for many major television and radio networks within Australia including Ch 7, Ch 9 and Network 10. Her voice has been heard on the Nova Radio Network in which she spent 3 years at Nova 937 Perth and Nova 969 Sydney
Miss Mason decided to leave the mainstream media circles 18 months ago. Disillusioned with the questions being asked and the people she had to interview she wanted to create something of substance and positivity. She decided to start up her own media brand Big Sis Australia so that she could discuss important social issues that really matter to females.
She must be doing something right because after only one month of launch Apple got in touch and wanted her to be a “feature banner” on iTunes!
Big Sis is all about empowering females to be the best that they can be and to know their worth when it comes to relationships, career and self. Sounds like the stuff we are all about at The League.

Kimberley Knight // Knight Global
Kimberley runs Knight Global, a Copywriting and SEO agency, which has grown at over 50% month on month for the last year. More importantly. Knight has achieved online revenue results which dwarf the investment made by clients and helped train internal teams to make it sustainable. Working with clients as diverse as modelling agencies in Arizona, fashion designers in Calabasas, and a plethora of Australian businesses, Knight has developed an offering based on science, rather than creative intuition. But, the landscape is ever-changing, so Kimberley and the team is constantly testing, measuring and learning.
