Webstock, New Zealand's greatest little web conference and potentially the only one with a dog named Bird as director of international markets and business development, is back and the speakers lineup has something for everyone.
Jen Bekman, founder of 20x200, is one of the confirmed speakers at the event, along with names such as acclaimed speaker and best-selling author Scott Berkun (of The Year Without Pants, The Future of Work and Making Things Happen fame), Pinboard founder Maciej Ceglowski, Hannah Donovan (co-founder and design director of This is My Jam), Erika Hall (author of Just Enough Research, founder of the Mule Design Studio, creator of Unsuck It and co-host of Running From the Law, a weekly podcast on business law and endurance fitness).
The lineup also includes the names of Nelly Ben Hayoun, designer of Experiences at the SETI Institute and the founding director of the International Space Orchestra in NASA Ames Research Center, and Aarron Walter, director of User Experience at Mailchimp.
The conference will hit Wellington on 10 February next year and include three days of workshops ahead of two full days of conference sessions. The full programme, which is still being finalised, is here.
