Sunshine Coast Council is sponsoring a presentation from renowned community economics specialist Michael Schuman at Nambour on Tuesday 25 September.

Division 5 Councillor Jenny McKay said securing Michael Schuman as a guest presenter was a real coup for the Sunshine Coast.

"I’m looking forward to hearing him talk about investment practices that support local business and job creation opportunities.

"It’s an excellent opportunity to hear about what has been happening in relation to community economics in America."
