"I chose the Women’s Business School Ignite Program because I wanted to get the know-how of running a business from woman who know what it takes to be a mum and run a business. I wanted to take my business from a side hustle to a profitable and sustainable business and I wanted to do that with a support network. This is exactly what I got from the Ignite Program. 

I really enjoyed all modules but the best one was the Financial Abundance. I got so much from this module. I have set aside time every week to review my businesses financial position and i now understand all the “finance lingo” that was once a total blur. I know what I am spending and when I need to cut back. This module has been such a massive help. 

I was really surprised how hands on Peace and Katy are. Not only do they run the business but they attend every call and respond to comments and messages super quickly. I was also surprised at the masterclass. The group of women were able to just get right into business planning mode and the guest speakers were excellent. 

There are so many things that I liked but the key highlight for me were the group coaching calls. I gained so much from hearing from the industry experts. I enjoyed their stories of success and the practical advice that they gave. 

I am more confident in making decisions and I am more confident to back myself. This program gave me the skills and the confidence to take my business to the next level. There is so much work when you are starting a business or when taking a side hustle mainstream. It can be really daunting. I was able to get through this stage with the support from the Women’s Business School." Skye London Y Executive

‘When I began to embark on the journey to start my own business I was so overwhelmed with where to begin. There is so much information out there to help but how do I find the time to research while looking after 2 kids and still working. When I came across a Facebook ad introducing the Women’s Business School I had a ”oh my” moment. When I looked further into it I could not believe what the course described, its values and its modules. I was so excited because it had a module that taught you ”Time Management” around your business and your family. That’s when I had another moment and realised that this was meant to be. I have no regrets and I have learnt all the essential key components to setting up, running and sustaining my business. The support factor astounds me and I’ve made life long friends along the way too. This is not only a school it is a community, one that understands you not only as a student but as a mother, wife and entrepreneur’. Thank you for supporting me and showing me the skills to go one step further and be a Mumpreneur’.” Mandy Benn, The Women’s Business School

INDIGENOUS ENTREPRENEUR IN RESIDENCE

Kylie-Lee Bradford

In 2020 we are proud to be introducing a dedicated indigenous entrepreneur in residence joining our team.

Kylie-Lee Bradford is a proud Murrumburr woman from Kakadu National Park growing up in a small Aboriginal community called Patonga. 

The business journey began for Kylie through her mother, Sheril, a traditional custodian, well respected traditional Kakadu elder. The Kakadu Organics range in a 100% Indigenously owned female-led company specialising in eco-organic Indigenous products across three industries – organic clothing, native bush food and wild harvested skin care products. Kakadu Organics has grown incredibly fast over the last 3 years - proudly stocked in over 80 boutique stores around Australia including domestic and international airports. Kylie-Lee is extremely passionate about helping Indigenous women entrepreneurs.  

Her range of experience provides an opportunity for women to shine through ongoing mentoring and support - specifically catered to balance both the western and Indigenous business models. Her speciality, drawn from her passion, is supporting women in startups from remote, rural and regional areas.  

 

WHY WE SUPPORT WOMEN  

We believe supporting women to realise their potential is the key to changing the world by bringing their unique perspectives and leadership styles together with men to cocreate the future. We’re investing in women by providing opportunities for ambitious women to follow their business dreams and connecting them with incredible women from around the world. We’re proud to have been a part of the story of thousands of women entrepreneurs over the last 10 years and we're excited to see what the next 10 years has in store!

Our programs are designed to combine traditional business skills with personal development and leadership resulting in a holistic approach to business development and personal growth and equipping you with all the tools and confidence you need to succeed.  

COMMITTED TO DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION Supporting all women to participate fully in economic life across all sectors is essential to build stronger economies, achieve internationally agreed goals for development and sustainability, and improve the quality of life for women, men, families and communities.  

Statistics show that women, particularly women from indigenous and multicultural backgrounds, and those based in rural, regional and remote locations, don’t participate in incubators and accelerators at the same rates as men and we're here to change that.  

We are committed to ensuring that women from a diverse range of backgrounds have access to world-class education, peer connectivity, mentoring and support in a professionally challenging but safe and welcoming environment.  

The Women’s Business School is committed to having an impact on diversity in entrepreneurship through leadership on this important issue and actively providing the right conditions, support and opportunities for all women to succeed and reach their full potential.
