Global business ’chick’ to speak at lunch

Founder and global CEO of Business Chicks, Emma Isaacs.

Founder and global CEO of Business Chicks, Emma Isaacs, has been confirmed as guest speaker at this year’s Casey Cardinia Women’s Business Lunch in August.

Heading up the largest community for women in business, Emma is passionate about inspiring women to be bold, be courageous and to take risks. Over the past 13 years, she’s grown Business Chicks from a group of 250 members to what it is today – a global business that operates in two continents, 11 cities and produces more than 100 events annually.

Born and raised in Sydney, Emma now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and five young children. She is an author, has raised over $AU12 million for charity, is a serial property investor, and continues to head up the now international Business Chicks.

Emma has spent time with some of the world’s greatest thought leaders including Sir Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Sir Bob Geldof and Arianna Huffington. She is a highly sought after keynote speaker and media commentator on topics around female leadership and entrepreneurship and has been featured in BRW, Cosmopolitan, Sydney Morning Herald/The Age, The Australian Financial Review, InStyle and Marie Claire, and on Sunrise, Sky Business News and The Today Show.

She is a past president of the Entrepreneurs Organisation and also actively mentors a number of female entrepreneurs and business owners.

Emma will also be available for a book signing on the day – so guests are encouraged to bring along some extra cash to purchase a copy of her bestselling book Winging It!

Also on the bill will be Maria Ulas, CEO of event sponsor Artelia Jewellery, who will share her thoughts, passion and insight into her success as a business woman in the region.
