After the release of her book Winging It, and a sold-out tour around the country, you begged us to bring Business Chicks founder and global CEO Emma to the Gold Coast and now it’s finally happening!As a best-selling 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 the highs and lows of what it really takes to become successful.
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, Emma has transformed Business Chicks from the ground up, growing it into what it is today – a global enterprise that operates in two continents, 11 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 person 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.
