Double the capacity, an extended agenda featuring even more global speakers, and branching out into workshops, master classes and more! We’re levelling up the Global Summit for 2019 to build on the success of our inaugural event.
Here are four reasons why you should join us in 2019:
1. Our world-class speaker line-up will leave you inspired and educated
Sometimes we leave conferences feeling inspired but unsure of the next steps to take but our Summit strikes the perfect balance between inspirational storytelling and tactical takeaways that are action-focused.
Who doesn’t want to get fired up by listening to Bozoma Saint John “the coolest person to ever take to the stage at an Apple keynote” or hear from Spencer West, who summited Mount Everest using his hands and wheelchair?
This year we’re bringing you leaders like Rola Dagher who are leading massive global tech companies, trailblazers such as Lindsay Rae McIntyre who are spearheading diversity in companies like Microsoft, and humans rights advocates like Angelica Ross.
Also taking to the stage will be male allies like KPMG’s Armughan Ahmad who are advocating for the advancement of women and underrepresented groups in tech.
Our speaker line-up so far can be viewed here with many more exciting announcements yet come!
2. We put diversity and inclusion at the core of our event, not on the margins
The values of diversity and inclusion are embedded in everything we do at the conference. For us, this isn’t just a “nice to have”, it is the core of the Summit.
Content-wise, we’ve thoughtfully selected speakers who can share relevant lessons and tactics focused on inclusion. We want to ensure our stage represents our diverse population and the type of tech eco-system we’re trying to create.
Attendees being able to participate fully at the Summit is integral to our mission. We’re taking a number of steps to ensure this, including providing an accessible venue, complimentary child care facilities, a chest feeding room, a prayer room, and specially trained volunteers.
We also recognise that there are certain groups who have not been fully represented at tech conferences in the past and we are taking steps to change this with specially reserved tickets for individuals who identify with underrepresented, underestimated, or marginalized communities.

3. We make sure networking is more than just a card exchange
Our Summit offers extensive opportunities to build meaningful relationships with like-minded peers in the tech and innovation industry. Activations like our Conversation Stations have been carefully curated to build connections and our workshops and masterclasses will allow you to organically connect with people interested in the same topics as you.
Whether this is your introduction to the community or you want to continue building existing connections – the Summit is the perfect place for you to network.
4. We’ve got seamless onsite experiences
The experience of our attendees means everything to Team #movethedial. With an emphasis on attention to detail, we’re bringing you a conference that will serve as a north star for an inclusive and enjoyable tech event.
In 2018 we had exclusive #movethedial swag, live performances from talented artists, and a library packed full of books by incredible women authors. We’re bringing you all that and more this year, with further details to be revealed closer to the event!
We can’t wait to see you all in November. Don’t forget for a limited time only, we’re offering 20% off #movethedial Global Summit tickets. Get yours today.
