Welcome to the League of Extraordinary Women
It's fabulous to meet you!
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.
Female entrepreneurs are returning in droves to the League events, particularly the breakfasts which are held on a monthly basis and which feature powerful inspiration through the showcasing of successful female entrepreneurs who share their stories of hard work, perseverance and success!
We pay tribute to every guest, speaker, sponsor, member and partner who has shared the journey with us. Because of you, the League is providing a powerfully influential community of women, globally, who are passionate and motivated entrepreneurs, who are inspiring each other to succeed while also participating fully in entrepreneurial communities world-wide. .

Inspire, Passion, Community, Entrepreneurial drive, Thinking BIG and Differently, Integrity
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.
What we do
We have three types of events:
- Breakfast Series
- Working Lunch Series
- 'Run The World' One Day All Female Entrepreneur Conference
Meeting monthly over a light social breakfast, female entrepreneurs meet like-minded women who can mutually motivate and inspire! At every event, there will be a dynamic speaker sharing her journey, offering advice based on her experience and sharing business tips on topics members have asked for.
The League strives to banish that feeling of isolation as businesses grow and provide a space where female entrepreneurs can find the support needed. Guests leave the breakfasts feeling inspired, empowered and extraordinary!
Working Lunch Series
The Working Lunch Series is aimed at empowering our members by providing an intimate and casual lunch for them to learn from a dynamic female entrepreneur who is an expert in a particular field and ‘workshop’ a relevant business topic over lunch. The Working Lunches are exclusive to the League of Extraordinary Women members.
The purpose of the Working Lunches is to get our members working on their business and learning something new which can help them improve their business in some way. It’s also about connecting with other members within the League community, making friends, getting advice and walking away feeling INSPIRED and knowing they can ACHIEVE ANYTHING!!
This event is held in each of the cities on the last Friday of every second month for a duration of 3 hours.
'Run The World' All Female Entrepreneur One Day Conference
The League of Extraordinary Women recently hosted the FIRST one-day all female entrepreneur conference ever held in Australia. This exciting event showcased 10 outstanding female entrepreneurs who spoke on a range of different business topics and their entrepreneurial experiences to inspire and empower the audience of over 350 females.
The theme ‘Run the World’ was designed to empower, captivate and appeal to young females who 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.
The mission of the ‘Run the World’ Female Entrepreneur Conference was to:
Showcase the outstanding achievements of 10 incredible Australian and New Zealand 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 with a view to recreating it each year to further inspire the next generation of female entrepreneurs

Each community is lead by a League of Extraordinary Women "Crusader" who is the ambassador for the League in her community. It is the role of our Crusaders to spread the positive message of inspiration, empowerment and connection throughout their community. Our Crusaders are extraordinary female entrepreneurs in their own rights, daring to be different, being bold in their approach and changing the world with their own entrepreneurial endeavours! They desire to be positive role models and spokeswomen for the female entrepreneurs in their community and to be a part of something bigger than themselves.
The League of Extraordinary Women aims to align with partners on a long term basis. Our belief is that together, through enhancing the lives of the League community, both our businesses will grow.
When considering partners, the League looks for two things:
- a similar vision
- a desire to help others
The League's desire is to help female entrepreneurs specifically, through offering a global membership and events platform upon which they can connect and be inspired to grow bigger and better businesses.
We don't believe in a one size fits all approach. We believe that each partner has something unique to offer our community and as such, we must treat each opportunity individually. We must look for a win win situation in which our partner will benefit by offering their product or service and we must also look to how our community's lives will be enhanced by experiencing the same product or service.
If you are entrepreneurial by nature, are disrupting the industry within which you operate and began your business out of a desire to help others, we'd love to speak with you.
