Women's Business Lunch

The Casey Cardinia Women's Business Lunch is an annual event offering like-minded local business people a chance to join together and hear from an engaging business speaker, while enjoying a fantastic meal accompanied by a glass of bubbly. With a new, exciting speaker scheduled each year, and presentations often also accompanied by an extended question and answer segment, guests are continually delighted with fresh, inspiring and behind-the-scenes knowledge of some from Australia’s best businesses and business experts.

The event is supported by a range of dedicated sponsors, who believe in the event's strong benefits and help to enable affordability for all guests. If you would like to consider joining our network of sponsors, you can find out more about the benefits at Sponsorship Opportunities.

Guest speaker, Emma Isaacs 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, eleven 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 $12 million for charity, is a serial property investor, and continues to head up the now international Business Chicks.

At the event, Emma shared the secrets to her success, and told us more about the calculated 'winging it' approach she took to building her business.
