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 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. You can find out more about the process here. 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).

Program & Networking

What is the timing like for the day?

Registration will open from 8:00am with tea and coffee being available upon arrival. The presentations will run between 9:00am to approximately 5:30pm.

Who will I meet at AgileAus24?

AgileAus is a welcoming, community-driven event attracting delegates from areas such as telcos, finance, insurance, nimble startups, non-profits, digital businesses and government.

When will the program schedule be released?

The AgileAus24 program will be released in late June 2024.

Are the presentations being recorded?

At this stage AgileAus24 is an in-person event only and the sessions are not being recorded. Should this change, all in-person attendees would receive access to the recorded sessions after the Conference.

Workshops

How much is a workshop ticket?

Our ticket prices vary depending on whether you’re attending a full-day or half-day workshop. Discounted early bird tickets are also available until 30 April 2024. To see detailed price options, please visit the register page.

Is it possible to attend a workshop without attending the Conference?

Of course! Workshop tickets are purchased separately from Conference tickets — we’d love to see you at either event (or both!).

I would like to change the workshop that I choose. Is this possible?

Yes, but this is subject to workshop availability, so we recommend you make your selection as soon as you can before spaces sell out!

I can no longer attend the workshop. Can I transfer my ticket to someone else?

No problem. Please drop us an email on team@agileaustralia.com.au or give our friendly staff a call on 03 9663 3093 with the details of who will be replacing you and we’ll look after it from there.

Refunds are not provided for any cancellation received after Friday 12 July 2024 or for non-attendance on the day. All refunds will incur an AUD50 administration fee.
