The world is changing at an ever increasing pace and in this time of great change, we need to maintain a laser sharp focus on innovation in everything we do to ensure Queensland continues to grow and thrive in a shifting global economy.

If we are to succeed in the future, we need to invest in new ideas, create new connections and cultivate new industries and job opportunities. Governments are not immune to these changes either, and as technology provides us with new ways to deliver services, it’s important we too innovate for the people of Queensland.

We all have a role to play in our state’s ongoing development, so it’s vital we work together. Because together, we can shape a positive future for this generation and those to come.

So we invite you to join us for ‘Unpacking Innovation’, hosted by Logan Mayor Luke Smith, to hear about the new approaches we’re taking as a state to collaborate, share big ideas and fuel innovation.
