Speaker Hall of Fame.

Core to all Something Digital Events are the epic speakers and panellists to take to the stage to share and impart their digital wisdom and knowledge. Since May 2018 we are proud to have worked with the following digital legends - many of whom are frequent flyers on the Something Digital stage.

From day one we have committed to and achieved gender equality amongst our speakers, and we are proud to say that 52% of our 231 speakers past are female.
