LAST is a conference designed to be a platform for cross-discipline collaboration and the development of professional skills and knowledge. The conference is rooted in the lean and agile movements, but has a broader remit than just those domains. The theme of the conference centers around helping people level up in their professional capabilities. We are looking for talks or workshops that inspire attendees to try something to advance the Brisbane Lean, Agile and Systems Thinking community and finish the day proud to be part of the community.
We encompass software and product development, user and customer experience, leadership and management, organisational design and strategy, project management and process improvement, innovation and creativity.
By coming together and sharing our knowledge and experiences with each other, we all learn to be better at work and can continue to grow and help others. You can draw from a variety of fields and experiences to contribute content.
People that come to LAST come from all walks of life and contribute together to grow the capabilities of the Brisbane workforce. Together we make all of us better.
Interpret the brief widely. Pitch us your ideas.
Be as detailed as possible in your submission, as this will help you to refine your idea in your own mind, help the content curation team select your session, and allow people who are coming to LAST to decide that they want to come and participate in your session/s.
Don’t forget, you can edit your session and adjust the idea prior to the event, so don’t think that you’ve only got one chance.
As we are focused on the local community, we don’t expect people to travel from interstate or overseas to participate, although you are welcome if you choose to come. LAST is an event with low registration prices, we need to keep overheads low. Therefore, we generally do not reimburse travel and accommodation or pay a fee to session leaders/speakers.
We are not only looking for talks/presentations, but you could also run a workshop, play a game or do a lightning talk.
