WIS ACT In Conversation with Business Chicks Founder

WIS ACT have secured tickets to the Business Chicks' Founder Talks with Emma Issacs event in Canberra. Guests will hear Emma’s remarkable story of how she founded and grew Business Chicks. 

As a newly published author, mother to five kids, and the driving force behind Business Chicks, the only level Emma Isaacs lives on is BIG. Drawing on her signature disarming and no-nonsense charisma, she’ll discuss self-made leadership and how to create success on your own terms, sharing tips that ultimately drive growth and impact.

Join WIS ACT at the special price of $50.00 (regular price is $110.00 per entry). This amazing opportunity is strictly for WIS members only. Drinks and canapés at QT Canberra are included. 

As there is a limited number of tickets on offer for this event, you will need to tell us why you want to attend. Please state in 50 words or less why you'd like to hear Emma speak. The winners will be announced on Monday, 23 July 2018.

An alpha entrepreneur, Emma has only ever worked for herself (apart from a casual job whilst at school). When she was just 18, she became the co-owner of a small recruitment company where she had just started working. When she sold the business eight years later, it had grown exponentially and been named as Australia’s Favourite Recruiter in the SEEK Awards for three consecutive years. At 26, while still running the recruitment company, she wanted to start something new. She was invited to a small event by a group called Business Chicks and learned the business was for sale. She took a leap of faith and bought it.

Fast forward 13 years, and Emma has transformed Business Chicks from the ground up, growing it into what it is today – a global enterprise that operates in two continents, eleven cities and produces more than 100 events annually, with past speakers including Sir Richard Branson, Seth Godin, Dr Brené Brown, Arianna Huffington, Diane Von Furstenberg, Julia Gillard, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Jamie Oliver and many more.

Emma is passionate about inspiring others to be bold, courageous and take risks. And at this event, she’ll share insights, failures, practical tips and tangible advice from her 20 years of experience starting and growing businesses.

If you’re a founder, an entrepreneur, an intrepreneur, a side-hustler or just a damn brilliant professional who might be seeking more, this event is for you. Join us for an uplifting evening as we challenge our thinking on what’s possible and learn how to smash through self-limiting beliefs to really get ahead.

A limited number of subsidised tickets are available to join WIS ACT at this event.

Please note: This opportunity is only open to members.
