The Digital Summit 2020 is live

10 November 2020

Log on now for our keynote speakers, presentations, workshops, case studies, and on-demand presentations.


We’ve launched the virtual Digital Summit 2020 with a packed program.

Over 4 days between 10 and 19 November, from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm (AEDST), our Australian and international presenters are providing practical insights on how to lead and deliver through these difficult times. There are opportunities to engage with your peers, share your experiences, and learn from others. You’ll also hear from industry, with some of the largest organisations in the world sharing their insights and experiences.

First day highlights

The theme for the first day of the Digital Summit is Disruption and Change. Highlights include:

  • government keynote delivered by the Hon Stuart Robert MP
  • presentations by Jim Grubb (Cisco) and Tom Burton (AFR)
  • workshops on designing a better future and digital ethics
  • case studies demonstrating the positive outcomes of human-centred design methods and service delivery
  • on-demand content on innovation and crisis response.

The full program is on the Digital Summit website


Our workshops are a great way for you to build your digital capability, develop skills, and expand your digital transformation toolkit. Each workshop is limited to 30 people, providing the best experience for each attendee. Get in quick before spots run out.

You’ll need to register for each workshop separately when you register for the Digital Summit.

On-demand content

Our on-demand presentations are available to watch at any time during each day. These showcase the positive outcomes of industry and government working together to respond to recent crises. Registered attendees can view all sessions for 12 months after the Digital Summit.
