Griffith University Business Regional Development Breakfast 4 February

Griffith University Logan Campus is hosting a breakfast with world-renowned thought leader Michael H. Shuman on Monday 4 Febuary.

Michael is an economist, attorney, author, entrepreneur and globally recognised expert on community economics. He'll be discussing how combining the strengths of regional small business, social enterprise and community are imperative in local economic development.

A prolific speaker, Michael has travelled the globe for the last 30 years, speaking and sharing his knowledge with local governments and universities.

He is one of the architects of the crowdfunding reforms that became the JOBS Act, signed into law by President Obama in April 2012, and has performed 'leakage analyses' and related economic-development planning for over 10 regional areas across the globe.

Michael has appeared on numerous television and radio shows, such as the Lehrer News Hour and NPR’s Talk of the Nation, and NPR’s All Things Considered.

Currently, he is the Director of Community Portals for Mission Markets and a Fellow at Cutting Edge Capital and Post-Carbon Institute. He’s also a founding board member of the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies and an adjunct instructor in community economic development for Simon Fraser University in Vancouver.

Tickets are $25 and strictly limited, so register early.

This event is proudly hosted by the Griffith Business School, Yunus Social Business Centre.
