Brisbane will play host to Australia’s leading female entrepreneurs for the League of Extraordinary Women’s annual Run the World conference on May 16, a one-day event that will see 11 trailblazing business women share their strategies, secrets, insights, learnings and more.

Bringing together some of Australia’s best and brightest entrepreneurs, Run the World will feature talks from Brisbane’s own Kelli Wharton, designer and founder of Talulah label; Samantha Wills of her self-titled label; Renegade Collective founder and editor-in-chief Lisa Messenger; Showpo founder Jane Lu; The Content Folk founder Nicole Kersh; Nads founder Sue Ismiel; Charlton Brown General Manager Petrina Fraccaro; Rebekah Campbell of; health and lifestyle author Lola Berry; founder and CEO of Enjo Australia Barb de Corti; and Table of Plenty founder Kate Weiss.

For a small taste of what will be on offer, editor-in-chief of The Collective Magazine, Lisa Messenger, will divulge how a woman with no background in print magazines can independently launch a 176 page glossy lifestyle publication into an industry heralded ‘dying’.

Jane Lu will lend lessons on failure, having launched fashion website Showpo off the back of a failed business venture, $50,000 in debt, and still living at home with her parents.

Whilst the League of Extraordinary Women host a bi-monthly breakfast series across all major cities, the Run the World conference is the mindfood that budding entrepreneurs and business owners of Brisbane have been craving.

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for its local entrepreneurs and creatives, yet League General Manager Chiquita Searle wants to challenge this outdated mindset.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.” says Miss 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.”

Ladies, grab your notepads, sharpen your pencils, and take note from Australia’s leading trailblazers at the Run the World conference on Saturday May 16th.
