DEX 2024: Call for Speakers

DEX 2024 is back in Sydney on 12 September 2024!

Our DEX conferences have led the globe in exploring digital employee experience, from what it means right now to where it’s heading in the future. This is the event that brings together practitioners from intranet and digital workplace teams, HR and internal communications, digital and IT; all with a focus on delivering great outcomes for employees.

It’s now time to gather another great set of speakers from across Australia and around the globe. An international call for speakers is a key part of this, giving practitioners working in every organisation a chance to submit their ideas.

We encourage submissions from across Australia, New Zealand, and internationally.

Call for speakers is now open!

Don’t miss out on your chance to be part of this extraordinary conference. The closing date for submissions is April 2 – apply below.
