Sheryl Thai

CEO & Co-Founder League of Extraordinary women

At 8 years old, my parents asked me, "What do you want to do when you grow up?", I instinctively replied "I want to change the world".  

I started my work life as an IT Management Consultant - where I felt my soul was slowly getting sucked out of me. Baking cupcakes was the only thing that kept me feeling alive. And so the Universe decided to give me that fateful push and I lost my job during the GFC. In 2010, Cupcake Central hatched! My dream had come true and became the catalyst to co-founding League of Extraordinary Women as the entrepreneurial journey was isolating and tough.

My mission in life is still to change the world and I believe I was born to connect as many extraordinary women as possible, all over the world, so that we can we never have to feel lonely following our dreams. #hatchthatdream

Passionate about connecting like-minded people and also supporting women to understand and love their money.

Induwa Carolyn Cummings

Gold Coast Ambassador

Passionate about people, our planet and making a difference. 

I’m committed to making a difference in the working world about how companies look at engaging workers, the hours, the locations and all those other crazy paradigms we have around the workplace.  We should all be loving what we do!  After 5 years of working in a very male dominated industry I am loving connecting with women through my Ambassador role with The League….  Although not quite as much as I love the ocean;)  hence why I live at the stunning Gold Coast.  I have also been known to have a weakness for gluten sugar dairy free desserts disguised as health food.

Liz Atkinson-Volpe

Co-founder League of Extraordinary Women
Founder of Project Gen Z

Big heart. Extraordinary vision. Boundless energy.

Motivating people is her thing and when she's not looking after her two gorgeous kids, growing businesses and changing the world (basically, being a real-life superwoman!) she also mentors people to reach a potential they've never thought possible.

After a life-changing trip to Cambodia a few years ago, she saw the potential in the young people there. She thought, raising donations is one thing - but how can we change their lives like they have mine? So she got a team of successful entrepreneurs and together they launched the dare to dream entrepreneurial workshop series to over 100 disadvantaged youths at Sunrise Cambodia.  The results were profound as these students that have been through tough childhoods felt for the first time - they were allowed to dream the impossible. A few of the students even started their own businesses!
