You've all had some time to cool off after being hit with the epic value bombs at DEPOTnext on 9 February at Brisbane Powerhouse. 

Your cooling off period is nearly over! It's time to start preparing your ears and minds to be blown as we are only just over a month away until DEPOTnext returns to the Turbine Platform at Brisbane Powerhouse. 

On Wednesday 25 May, three empowering business experts will be dropping value bombs here, there and everywhere to empower YOU to take YOUR business to the next level. It's time to tear the roof off of the Brisbane Powerhouse... not literally of course, you get my point.

Join over 250 local Brisbane entrepreneurs and business owners as we hear from some of Australia's best minds in business. Learn from their experiences and take any insights back to apply to your business.

The first two speakers have been announced. Let's hear the drum roll ... Your first two speakers are:


Leadership HQ

"Leadership is an attitude"

LeadershipHQ shows you how to create organisations, teams and leaders who are able to push beyond the traditional boundaries and produce vibrant change within your leadership, your organisational culture and your people. They will improve your Leadership Significantly.

Leadership is an attitude, not a job. If you want to rock as a leader, all you need is the right attitude, and this program shows you how to get it. Through the #leadership is an attitude address you will learn why your mindset really matters when you define yourself as leader, how to build your leadership presence and how to become the kind of leader who inspires people to follow them.

Gaia Grant is the Director of Tirian Consultancy and author of a number of books including international bestseller Who Killed Creativity? and the upcoming release The Innovation Race.

This session provides a fascinating investigative approach to creative thinking and innovation – helping to reveal potential creativity killers and identify some initial strategies for success. A fun creative thinking assessment helps to reveal the blocks and provide a framework for innovative development.



"My journey, stuff ups and learnings"

In 2012 Gen launched OneShift on the back of a free blog and nothing but posters, duck tap and an iPad. Within the space of 3.5 years, OneShift now has over 660,000 users, 39,000 businesses across Australia / NZ and received $5 million of investment in 2013. More recently Gen and the OneShift team have launched, a dynamic online marketplace that instantly connects local talent with local businesses through machine learning and artificial intelligence. In only a couple of months, Skilld has signed multi million dollar deals with the likes of CCIQ and many other connections with thousands of Small businesses to talent locally.

In Gen's talk, she will take us through her journey of taking an online startup business from zero to over 600,000 users, the challenges she faced and she overcame them. We can all learn some empowering lessons from Gen's entrepreneurial story, and apply her insights to our businesses to take them to the next level!
