The Speakers

Check out the 2018 edition to know what to expect in 2020!

We already received numerous responses for the 2020 Conference. In 2018, we had more than 120 submissions to the CFP, so if this year proves similar, it’ll be tough to choose!

This year, we aim to have more diverse content, a dedicated MC, and we will offer rehearsals for speakers to ensure amazing content for our participants. We continue to value original content, real-life feedback, and research.
