Get involved

We're always looking for speakers. Talks are short, 15 minutes for the main talks, and often 5-minute talks slots too. Short talks suit the format of the evening which is a fun, social meetup. The 5-minute slots are particularly good for people who don't have as much experience in giving talks and want to give it a go. We are keen to encourage diversity of speakers, and we would especially welcome more women.

People share passion projects, experiments, interesting technology, and philosophical ideas. We want to hear what you are doing or thinking about, but please avoid recruitment pitches during the talks (save that for the Pitch slot at the end of the evening). Talks don't have to be deep tech, we like to keep it varied, and even design-orientated talks are welcome. So, if you've got a talk or an idea for a talk, get in touch via [email protected] or complete this speaker enquiry form.
