Title who we are

The full Lead with Tempo schedule

With two days of talks and workshops, there's almost too much goodness in this schedule! We’ll be adding speaker bios, talk outlines and workshop descriptions in the coming weeks.

Our speakers bring a wealth of global leadership experience from content and design roles across a variety of sectors, and from tech start-ups to large organisations.

We can't wait to hear their stories and learn from them – they’ll share their highs (and lows) as we delve into the challenges of content design leadership at this exclusive conference.
