IT’S ALL ABOUT KNOWLEDGE FROM OTHERS – COLLABORATING AND COMMUNICATING.
IDEAS THAT CAN’T BE GOOGLED.
There is so much knowledge coming from speakers who have been in the trenches working on these new technologies. The wisdom they have and are willing to share with everyone is truly invaluable – these are things that a simple web search won’t yield for you.
From local heroes to global dominators, together on a few stages in half-hour blocks – these people will treat you to a journey through their eyes.
At the Pause Fest tech conference, hear from leaders as they discuss, and debate, on the trending topics and conversations from the industry. This is your opportunity to join, absorb, and ask questions of these very knowledgeable people.
MISTAKES AND FAILURES
We all failed at something. Read that again. We all failed at something. Understand and learn from the leaders as they share all the highs and lows from their experiences. We are all human – don’t think for a second that everyone doesn’t fail at some point in time. Sometimes trends move quicker than companies can adjust – sometimes we believe we have come up with the best new flashy thing, and it just doesn’t seem to take off as you’d anticipated. You are not alone, not in the slightest. Remember fidget spinners? They came and went as quickly as the Melbourne weather changes, but in its 15 minutes of fame, it caused a shortage in ball bearings as the world had never seen. The next big thing can cause a huge ripple.
There is nothing better than having a front-row seat when two titans collide in one epic journey. Be there to hear it. These speakers will have it all for you.
As long as you can walk and talk, these are the perfect opportunity for you to not only discuss the subject but meet the people involved. Honest answers to real questions – the only chance you will have is if you are there.
Sometimes the best way to learn is through challenges, insights and perspectives. The pure and honest wisdom available on this platform is just incredible.
Hands-on and interactive workshops are the best way to pick up a skill or two. Places are limited to 30 participants, and the workshops run for about 1-2 hours. These places will fill up fast, so get in quickly to avoid disappointment. Tickets are available now, so get in soon before prices rise!
