Empowering Women Through Financial Independence – NCWQ Seminar with Law Squared

NCWQ Empowerment Series – Setting Your Business Up for Success

“Empowering Women Through Financial Independence”


Welcome to our 2021 Empowerment Series! We want to empower women by providing you with knowledge and information to start your journey to financial independence. Each session, we will learn from an expert in their specific industry, but YOU get to send in your questions prior to the event so that you can get the most out of your attendance.

Setting Your Business Up for Success

In our inaugural series, we cover some of the important things to consider from a legal perspective when you are setting up a business and issues you need to consider as a health check for your business so that you can continue to operate and grow. Your business’ legal framework could be the difference between success and failure.

In this session, Law Squared’s Alexandra Geelan will explore some of the key legal issues that founders need to understand to set themselves and their business up for success, and for those who are already in business, to think about to ensure your foundations will continue to support and protect you.

Some of the key considerations include:

    1. Business Plans & Structures.
    2. Becoming Employee Ready.
    3. The Importance of Contracts & Agreements.

Don’t forget you are not alone here, and we will also cover some of our top tips and resources for where to turn to, to help your business ventures succeed!

To ensure this is beneficial to our members and friends, we invite you to submit any questions you may have around how to set your business up for success. Alexandra will tailor her content around what you want to hear and discuss. So use this opportunity to optimise your learning! Questions can be submitted during the booking process.

About Empowerment Series

“Empowering Women Through Financial Independence”

Welcome to our 2021 Empowerment series. We want to empower women by arming them with information, knowledge and providing the opportunity to network with other like-minded people. Come take your first step to becoming financially independent.

This series will be held every second month (full list of dates below), and is open to all members and friends of NCWQ.

We are providing these sessions both physically in the Brisbane CBD and online:

  • In-person: this provides an opportunity for the amazing women in our network to come share their stories, insights and knowledge, and also provide members and friends of NCWQ an opportunity to mingle and network. Come meet us, have a chat, expand your network and learn something along the way!
  • Online: this provides an opportunity for everyone to join us, no matter where you are. Queensland is a large state and we are making full use of technology for all our members and friends from near and far!

Topics to be announced. Save these dates in your calendars and we will send out details closer to the event.
