Activate Agile

Wednesday 26 June 2019 at Hilton Sydney from 1.00pm – 4.30pm.

Meet the techies working in Sydney’s boss-level companies at Activate Agile!

‘Agile’ is an approach to working used across the world’s leading organisations to improve corporate culture and the quality of products. Activate Agile is a FREE interactive afternoon designed for students and educators to learn more about better ways of working with Agile.

Running alongside the AgileAus Conference, this is a unique opportunity to tap into the brains of those working in leading tech companies. Find out what it’s really like to work as a developer, business analyst, product manager or designer; discover the traits tech employers are looking for; and get an insight into the approaches and practices used in Agile workplaces.

Who’s speaking at Activate Agile?

Activate attendees will also get the opportunity to sit in on conference sessions led by Spotify’s Erin McManus and Fiona Siseman, and The Playful Entrepreneur author Mark Dodgson.


Following an introduction to Agile presented by a bona-fide Agile Coach, you’ll get to choose from a range of activities to participate in, all happening in one room!

We’ll be using a ‘vote with your feet’ approach, which means you don’t need to sign up to any of the activities prior to the day – just walk over to the ones that interest you.

2.00 – 3.30PM

Welcome: What is Agile? Alexandra Stokes, ReBoot Co


Each activity will run from 15-20 minutes. After each activity, students are welcome to rotate to whichever activity they would like to participate in next.
