WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT / the conference theme

Business is being interrupted. Influenced by expected and unforeseen digital, health, social, and economic forces, causing everyone to reimagine what is possible.

The world is shifting, setting a new course which intersects customer, business, product and change. Bringing together the expertise of Business Owners, Project Managers, Product Managers, UX Designers, Data Scientists and Change Managers in collaboration with the Business Analysis Professional.

Together we’re weaving words, pictures and stories while balancing logic and creativity. But what’s working? And what’s next?

Do the structures need to change? What roles will we see emerge? How will our skills evolve? What techniques will we use? And how will our tools fit this future?

Join us at the summit this year, for a new experience, with speakers full of bright ideas to get you inspired, listening, learning and engaging.
