James Colquhoun presents 'Making an impact - Turning your passion into your profession' at the Innovation Centre's next Enterprise Tuesday on 4 May, 2010.

James Colquhoun considers himself an accidental entrepreneur -- his passion for nutrition led him to produce the documentary Food Matters on nutrition, health and wellbeing with partner Laurentine ten Bosch.

Although James may be a modest filmmaker, the feature Food Matters cracking the international market with 100,000 sales and airing in more than 30 countries worldwide is nothing to sneeze at.

James identified a niche and built a business not only to create a better life for himself but to add value to other lives. He has achieved all of this from a Sunshine Coast base at the Innovation Centre working with a virtual extended team from across the world.

Interest in Food Matters continues to grow with over 95,000 people visiting their website in one month.

Don't miss this engaging presentation on:

>    Making a change for yourself -- how to bring meaning to what you do for a living
>    Finding your niche and tips on building a successful business
>    Developing a sustainable business model
>    Creating a team of people around you and focusing on what you do best
>    The opportunities of working in an online and connected world
>    Taking a leap of faith and staying true to your passion

Attend the next Enterprise Tuesday and learn how you can take your passion and make a change for the better from this inspiring speaker.

Enterprise Tuesday is a monthly forum aimed at aspiring entrepreneurs in the Sunshine Coast region based on a program run by the University of Cambridge.

The event is also open to all USC staff and students and members of the local business community with restrictions to one representative per company.
