Join us for the first Australian edition of a conference unlike others.

The Business Agility Conference features 2 days of authentic stories and great storytellers on business agility; anything from agile outside IT, organisational design and product innovation to next-gen leadership.

The event brings together some of the greatest speakers and practitioners of business agility to share their experiences and the benefits their organisations have gained from exploring new, agile, practices.

The international event, held in Sydney for the first time, will feature some insightful and authentic talks & workshops from around the world.

So, why is this conference different?

The event is highly interactive - a combination of keynotes and facilitated learning "deep dives". Everyone will be seated together in one room for two days. Each day will be split into 4 topics (e.g. organisation design, leadership & empowerment, innovation & market disruption, governance & strategy, customer & citizen focus and leading the transformation). Each topic will have three, 20 minutes, "art of the possible", case studies followed by 40 minutes of facilitated hands-on engagement.

The conference is designed so that participants spend 50% of their time networking and learning from each other through these hands-on, "deep dive" sessions.
