More details on our speakers


As Australia grapples with the profound economic impact of COVID-19, we have a unique opportunity to position Australia as a technological powerhouse driven by a clean and sustainable economy, skilled workforce, world-class research activity and commercialisation. ACTIVATE 2022 will bring together 500 high-level representatives from across government, business and academia, and feature keynote conversations between global and national future shapers, prominent technology entrepreneurs, industry leaders and researchers who will share their vision for a technology powered, human driven future for all Australians.

The coming decade will see the culmination of a unique set of challenges; decarbonisation of our economy, managing the transition of multiple industries, and training the workforce needed for an increasingly digital future. But right now, Australia is in the midst of a STEM skills shortage which will only grow more acute as technology increasingly drives the way we work and live. The clock is ticking!
