Creative industry businesses in the Moreton Bay Region with a big idea or a desire to grow, are being encouraged to be part of the second annual Creative Industries Demonstration Day, presented by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
To support Moreton Bay region becoming a top 10 innovation hub in Australia and shine a spotlight on the region’s creative industry sector, up to 10 finalists will be selected to take part.
Mayor Peter Flannery says following the success of the inaugural Creative Industries Demo Day, he’s confident this program will once again offer businesses an invaluable opportunity to pitch their ideas or business to an audience of industry professionals, future customers and potential investors.
“We’re calling for all businesses operating within the Creative Industries sector in Moreton Bay Region to submit an expression of interest,” Mayor Flannery says.
“Whether you write, code, tell stories, design, or something else entirely, this is your chance to pitch your idea to a panel of industry professionals, including representatives from Josephmark, Screen Queensland, Woodfordia and TAFE Queensland.”
Chance to enhance skills
In the lead-up, finalists will take part in a pre-event workshop hosted by renowned trainer and workshop facilitator Jacqueline Nagle from Any Given Tuesday.
The pre-event workshop will assist finalists to fine-tune their skills and unlock the elements of influence to provide them with skills across pitching, storytelling, speaking, positioning, business model analysis and strategy.
Expressions of interest are open until Friday, March 31. Finalists will be announced the following week and will be required to attend the pre-event workshop on Thursday, April 13t from 9am-1pm.
Finalists will then be invited to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges and a room of industry leaders, at the Creative Industries Demo Day hosted at TAFE Queensland, Redcliffe Campus, on Thursday, April 27.
The afternoon will be hosted by Brisbane Festival CEO Charlie Cush and will feature a celebratory networking event following the pitches.
