Run The World 

Female Entrepreneur Conference 2014 

We'd LOVE for you to SHARE your story!

Who we are.

A small group of highly successful female entrepreneurs based in Melbourne who, in late 2011, began a movement, with the purpose to connect the extraordinary female entrepreneurs of the world.

In less than 2 years the League of Extraordinary Women has experienced phenomenal organic growth and has launched in 8 cities across Australia with plans to expand into the US and UK markets in April 2014. 

In October 2013, in conjunction with RMIT University, the League of Extraordinary Women hosted the first ever, all female, one day entrepreneur conference in Australia. 'Run the World' was designed to showcase the outstanding female entrepreneur talent within Australia and New Zealand, to give our speakers the opportunity to share and celebrate their success, and to inspire the next generation of female entrepreneurs within Australia.

Over 250 young female entrepreneurs gathered for the 2013 'Run the World' Female Entrepreneur Conference to become a part of the powerfully influential community of women building within Australia, who are passionate and motivated entrepreneurs, inspiring each other to succeed while also participating fully in entrepreneurial communities world-wide.

What success means to us.

That we are recognised as the most influential movement for female entrepreneurs globally and through our community, we have forever altered the way women participate in entrepreneurial endeavors around the world, which has a direct economic benefit on every community we are involved with on a global basis. 

'Run The World' 2014

In 2014, the League of Extraordinary Women  will again host the history making, 'Run the World' one day all female entrepreneur conference in Melbourne on Saturday 25th October.  This exciting and ground breaking event will showcase a select group of outstanding female entrepreneurs to share their entrepreneurial experiences, to inspire and empower the audience of over 1,000 dynamic and driven female entrepreneurs.

The theme ‘Run the World’ is designed to empower, captivate and appeal to young females who are running their own businesses and are considering taking the leap of faith into the world of entrepreneurship. It provides them with an insight into what it takes to be an entrepreneur, how to get started and what challenges they will face on their journey.

The mission of the "Run The World" Female Entrepreneur Conference:

  • Showcase the outstanding achievements of incredible Australian female entrepreneurs

  • To inspire and empower attendees to follow their dreams and aspirations through the experience and knowledge shared by the high profile guest speakers

  • Encourage young females to connect with each other at the event

  • To hold the largest and most monumental female entrepreneur event in the history of Australia to inspire the next generation of female entrepreneurs.

Recap: 2013 Event

Share your story

We recognise you as an extraordinary woman who has a story of entrepreneurial inspiration to share!

Ultimately, the League of Extraordinary Women isn't about any one woman individually, but about us all, as a collective of women, who can continue to pay it forward by ensuring that women in business are supported, encouraged and motivated to think BIG, to think DIFFERENTLY and to NEVER GIVE UP!!

Female entrepreneurs within our community would benefit immensely from hearing your story, so they can be inspired by your journey, the challenges you have faced and overcome, the emotional highs and low's, the success, the learnings and most importantly, what kept you going. We, as women, have a responsibility to share our success with the new generation of female entrepreneur, to keep her pushing forward through any obstacle placed in her way.

Past Speakers

We have been honoured to host some of the most incredible female entrepreneurs Australia has to offer at past League of Extraordinary Women events. Women who are paving the way, thinking BIG and differently, disrupting the industry within which they operate and changing the world with their unlimited capabilities.

We thank each of these amazing women for sharing their journey and inspiring our community with their forward thinking, innovative approaches and refusal to give up!

Amazing Australian female speakers.

Each with an inspiring story or topic to share.

Women that are looking to inspire others and join this movement.


How it will work

The format of the event is similar to TED Talk conferences with a selected number of speakers scheduled to speak on stage to a large audience of 1,000 people. The talks will be recorded and uploaded online so that your message not only reaches the immediate audience in attendance but also thousands of viewers and League of Extraordinary Women members internationally. This is your chance to share your story with the world of aspiring female entrepreneurs and inspire people to follow their passion!

  • Each guest speaker will speak for 20-25 minutes 
  • Speakers will have a chosen topic that aims to inspire the audience. Examples include: How I turned my dream into reality, changing the world, why I do what I do, why female entrepreneurship is important
  • There will be sponsorship opportunities to advertise your company/brand if applicable
Together, we can proactively support female entrepreneurs on a global basis, to grow bigger and better businesses.
