At the recent Young Planners Forum, as part of PIA’s QLD Conference on the Gold Coast, I presented a short talk on ideas to inspire Town Planners and asked participants to answer the question – what does a city chock-full of planning entrepreneurs look, feel and even sound like?

I also asked them to brainstorm a series of problems facing the Gold Coast and then to develop solutions by launching a new startup and creating an elevator pitch to sell their concept.
