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.
WHERE: Saint John Craft Beer, Launceston.
WHEN: 25th July 2017
TOPIC // In Conversation with Lynda McKay
GUEST SPEAKERS // Lynda McKay
Lynda started her career as a high school teacher before leaving Tasmania to travel overseas for three years in her twenties. She returned home to start up a marketing and advertising consultancy during which time she had her three children.
Having worked with small tourism operators she developed a passion for this industry and took on the role of Launceston Sales Manager with the then Tasmanian Convention Bureau (now BET) promoting Tasmania to interstate and international conference organisers. She has also worked in media sales with WIN television and is now working as the Beacon Foundation’s Northern Senior Business Engagement Manager.
Lynda’s personal achievements include riding 300 kms across Cambodia having raised 40K for two NGO’s in the country, running 4 marathons and undertaking the gruelling 101km event, Gone Nuts.
She was a finalist in the Telstra Business Women’s Awards last year and is constantly looking for new challenges in her business and personal life. Surrounding herself with inspirational women gives her the confidence to reach her goals.
LOCATION // Saint John Craft Beer, Launceston.
SOME RULES we’d like to point out.
1) Tickets are $20 (+booking fee), or free for League members. Now, it goes without saying that the free tickets are for League Members only, so please only select that ticket type if you are a paying League Member – League membership is $15 per month, and gives you access to free Meet Ups in addition to loads of members only content on the members portal. If you’re not a member yet then you can join via the link below, or just purchase a ticket. http://www.leagueofextraordinarywomen.com.au/join-us/
2) Please only register for this event if you plan on going. I know some people will grab a free ticket and then decide last minute that they’re too lazy to go – don’t be one of these people. If you commit to something, commit to it – we want to meet you!
3) If you’ve never been to a League event, there’s a reason why we don’t use the “N” word and use the word “connecting” instead. It’s because of the negative connotation of soliciting, selling and business card swapping. Bleh, no one wants to go to an event to talk to someone for 20 minutes only to realise you’re being sucked into buying some powdered thick shakes. We are here to connect authentically and honestly – share stories and experiences, learn from each other and respect each other. Magical things WILL happen and people will seek you out to buy from you when you work from an honest heart space.
