DEX 2020 is coming to Sydney on 2-4 September 2020. Our DEX conference leads the globe in exploring digital employee experience, from where the future is heading to what it means right now. This is the event that brings together practitioners from HR and internal communications, to digital and IT, all with a focus on delivering great outcomes for staff.

Last year we had speakers from across Australasia, and as far away as the UK, USA, Russia & Brazil.

It’s now time to gather another great set of speakers from 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, S-E Asia and internationally.

Call for speakers is now open!

COVID-19 update

Step Two is following recommendations & updates from the Australian Government’s Department of Health as the health of our speakers and attendees is very important to us. DEX 2020 is on track to go ahead as planned. In the event that the risk to individuals increases and further travel bans are enforced, Step Two will honour all contractual commitments to reimburse speaker travel expenses (where applicable) if DEX 2020 is cancelled.
