We’ve curated another incredible event, with speakers and programming designed to help you focus zealously and obsessively on your customers. 

For example, our “User Experience” Panel will explore how to implement and track best-in-class user experience design, how to use data-driven insights and design elements to differentiate you from your competitors, and how to improve the customer journey and experience.

We’ve gathered some of Australia’s best UI and UX experts for this session. 

Panelists include:

  • Anne-Marie Elias: Chief Disrupter, Innovation Consultant

And that’s just one session. The full agenda can be found here. As usual, we’ve curated an incredible programme featuring digital and data leaders from both the public and private sector.

Last year’s Sydney CDO Summit sold out weeks early, in keeping with our sold-out summits in New York City (our 5th year) and London (our 3rd year).
