COVID-19 update: State Library is gradually reopening and more spaces are now available. Check what’s open before you visit.
Learn from, meet and network with Queensland’s leading entrepreneurs in business, technology and the creative industries at Game Changers.
We are proud to announce our final Game Changers conversation for 2019 showcases cardiologist and founder of Heart of Australia, Dr Rolf Gomes. Hear about the difficult yet ultimately rewarding process of taking the idea of an Australian first medical program through to reality.
Dr Gomes will discuss his five-year entrepreneurial journey from the challenges of funding and sponsorship, government policy and politics, challenging the status quo, coordinating logistics, collaborating with organisations, developing hardware and the tyranny of distance. If these challenges resonate with you, this final Game Changers event is not to be missed.

Heart of Australia is an Australian first and sees The Heart Bus, a custom-made mobile clinic which is fully equipped with specialist diagnostic equipment, transform a vision into a reality.
