    Hail to the Chief

    Hail to the Chief

    It’s raw, it’s real, it’s unKEMPt – and this week, it’s a little different.
    After two mammoth years in the role, Leanne Kemp’s time as Queensland Chief Entrepreneur is at an end. This episode, Leanne is joined by the wizard behind the curtain – OQCE Director Craig O’Kane – to look back at their epic run together.
    Since the day they met each other in an airport lounge, Leanne and Craig have embarked on an incredible journey. They’ve travelled the length and breadth of Queensland, meeting up-and-coming founders in every corner of the State.
    This week, as Leanne ends her term as Chief, they look back at some of the most memorable entrepreneurs they encountered – and where those entrepreneurs are now.
