Queensland business leaders share their secrets
State Librarian Janette Wright today announced the return of Game Changers — the popular talk series with Queensland entrepreneurs at State Library of Queensland (SLQ).
Game Changers is a Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame initiative presented by SLQ, the Queensland Library Foundation and QUT Business School, and kicks off in March with a variety of inspiring speakers.
Hear the insights and secrets of innovation leaders from business, technology and creative industries, including Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Netbox Blue, Trent Davis; speech pathologist turned social entrepreneur, Dr Dimity Dornan AO; ‘godfather of Brisbane bar culture’ Damian Griffiths; and Group CEO and Managing Director of Domino’s Pizza, Don Meij.
Arts Minister Ian Walker said Game Changers offers a rare opportunity to hear first-hand from local business leaders on how they build companies, reinvent themselves, inspire teams and envision success.
“Facilitated by Ray Weekes, Chair of The CEO Institute, Game Changers runs bi-monthly from March to September,” Minister Walker said.
“Each talk in the Game Changers series will be followed by a networking function, giving attendees a chance to make connections and talk about their ideas.”
The launch of the series begins with Netbox Blue Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Trent Davis. Trent was Ernst & Young’s 'Young Entrepreneur of the Year' in 2006 and named as one of the ‘Most Influential Australians under 30’ by FMH magazine.
State Librarian Janette Wright said Game Changers is just one of the many different ways that the Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame celebrates Queensland’s outstanding business leaders.
“By continuously building audiences and communities of interest around Queensland’s business history, the Hall of Fame inspires new knowledge about our shared history,” Ms Wright said.
Game Changers is an initiative of the Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame which celebrates, records and retells the stories of outstanding Queensland business leaders and their contributions to the state, with new inductees announced annually.
