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 teams and people.
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.
Who's it for?
Culture is for those helping create team and organisational culture: design and engineering leaders, people and talent, HR and Culture professionals, Learning and Development Managers. It all takes place in an intimate environment of like-minded professionals with similar challenges and goals.
Web Directions Summit
Culture is part of Web Directions Summit, running the day before the main two day, two track conference for your whole digital team. Come to all three days to both develop your leadership capabilities, and to keep up to speed with the latest development in your field. In fact, we have a special offer to make that even better value.

Out of any conference, Web Directions is far and away our favourite
founder Campaign Monitor
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 and Product in Melbourne, and Web Directions Summit, and Culture in Sydney
John Allsopp has been working on the Web for over 20 years. He's been responsible for innovative developer tools such as Style Master, X-Ray and many more. He's spoken at numerous conferences around the World and delivered dozens of workshops in that time as well.
His writing includes two books, including Developing With Web Standards and countless articles and tutorials in print and online publications.
His "A Dao of Web Design" published in 2000 is cited by Ethan Marcotte as a key influence in the development of Responsive Web Design, who's rightly acclaimed article in 2010 begins by quoting John in detail, and by Jeremy Keith as "a manifesto for anyone working on the Web".
