Oh, ladies, wāhine mā, we?ve started something EXTRAORDINARY!
Lock the date in for our next Waikato?s League of Extraordinary Women ? that magical evening where we don?t bring in amazing women from all over the country because we don?t need to! We look around us and everywhere we look, we see EXTRAORDINARY. Waikato women, shining bright, working hard, achieving great things, often quietly in the background. So we?re celebrating them!

And what?s that, we hear you ask? Where?s Shelly? Worry not, our evening will, as always, be MC?d by the vivacious and keep-you-on-your-toes Shelly Davies.
We are so thrilled to have ASB as our sponsors for the evening ? working alongside the Waikato Chamber of Commerce to celebrate, promote, and inspire women in the Waikato.
Come along, have a drink, hear some struggles and success stories, learn from each other, and most of all, hang with the girls. You deserve it!
