Creating better teams and workplace cultures

What is Web Directions Culture?

Running in conjunction with our annual, highly regarded Summit conference, Culture aims to help you build, nurture and get the most from your design and engineering teams.

From hiring to leading, communicating and providing feedback, creating inclusive high performing teams benefits your employees and your organisation.

In this hands-on day, we'll hear from and work with experts deeply experienced in creating great cultures. You'll not just listen, but discuss, workshop and role-play ideas, techniques and scenarios, and leave with a new set of ideas and approaches to getting the most from your teams.

About Us

Co-founded and now run by John Allsopp, Web Directions has for over a decade brought together leading developers, engineers, visual, IxD, UX and product designers, Art and Creative Directors, indeed everyone involved in producing web and digital products to learn from one another, and the World's leading experts across this vast field.

We spend our lives thinking about what comes next, keeping up with trends in technology, practices and processes, and filtering the hype, to make sure you don't miss trends that matter, and don't waste time on hype that doesn't.

We promise attending one of our events will leave you significantly better versed in the challenges you face day to day, and in solutions for addressing them.

In 2019, we'll be organising Design, Design Leaders, Code and Code Leaders in Melbourne, and Web Directions Summit, and Culture in Sydney
