Episode 2: Leanne Kemp

On this episode of Accelerating Change, we hear from tech entrepreneur Leanne Kemp, Queensland’s Former Chief Entrepreneur and Founder and CEO of Everledger.

Really, the leverage [to bring about change] that comes from using your brain and being connected to the human spirit is what the education system should have at the forefront of every single curriculum area, maths and science, even the arts. Bring it [curriculum] closer together to this innovation logic with entrepreneurship at the forefront because it gives you the ability to solve problems – that’s what entrepreneurs do.
