Building Innovation in the Regions Program

Office of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur


Follow the journey of Queensland Chief Entrepreneur Leanne Kemp as she travels along the east coast of Australia in this magnificent ‘mud on the boots’ tour of regional Queensland. See firsthand the opinions of innovators, entrepreneurs, backyard inventors, schools, universities, local governments, and locals as she visits over 18 regional towns and cities across Queensland.

In August 2019, the Office of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur embarked on a month-long regional engagement program travelling from Cairns and Wujal Wujal in Far North Queensland down the coastline to Toowoomba and Logan. It was an ambitious program whereby the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur met with more than 1800 stakeholders and attended more than 70 dedicated activities. We engaged Tide Productions and Lauren Panrucker to accompany us to document the program and capture what Queenslanders had to say about innovation and entrepreneurship. The resulting three videos capture the incredible breadth and diversity of innovation happening all around the State and feedback from our stakeholders and audiences has been very positive. We loved working with Tide Productions; the experience was smooth, professional and Lauren was fantastic at helping us articulate our vision into film. Not even a mid-project pivot from us could ruffle Lauren who pivoted with us and ensured we got a great result!
