WHAT// International Women's Day

WHERE: Newstead Studios, 22 Ross Street Newstead

WHEN: Thursday, 8th March

TIME: 7.00AM - 9.00AM


Let's celebrate International Women's Day with a panel of business women that are doing amazing things. We'll have an authentic conversation about what they have learned that works (and what doesn't) in relation to building great business relationships, being a business leader, investing in self development and creativity. 

We'll also chat about managing the drive to excel in business, while also taking enough time to recharge and celebrate successes along the way. They'll be sharing their tips to help you, on your business or career journey.

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.
