Speaking at AgileAus20-1

Who reviews speaker suggestions?

A dedicated team of 40+ reviewers and stream chairs comprised of agilists from a wide range of organisation types and areas of expertise give face-to-face feedback to those who have put in speaker suggestions online. Some have been involved for over a decade while some are brand new to the game! Anyone in the AgileAus community is welcome to put their hand up and volunteer to be a reviewer.

How is the final program built?
Under the guidance of the reviewing community, Slatterys works hard to build a program that represents the depth of the Australian Agile community. Special care is taken to ensure constituencies are neither over or under represented; any gaps in must-have topics are covered; and a mixture of tried and true wisdom and novel new ideas are reflected.
How many talks are usually lifted from the speaker suggestion process?
Out of the 250+ suggestions, less than 25 will be selected for the final program (about 1 in 10).
