Finger on the pulse: Gold Coast’s innovation scene

by Mitchell Tweedie, Oct 26, 2017

I was gauging the pulse of Gold Coast’s innovation scene at last Friday’s Intelligent Health Innovation Showcase, and boy was it racing! 

Hundreds of doctors, researchers, entrepreneurs and public sector representatives were in attendance. (There were even reports of a shark!)

The showcase managed to combine an impressive programme of speakers (including QLD Health CIO Dr. Richard Ashby and Dr. Glen ‘#SharkTankAU’ Richards) with open mic discussion and ideas sharing. 

You know how most times an audience is asked “any questions?” all you hear is crickets, well not at Gold Coast University Hospital. Nothing but top notch presentations with an engaged audience.
