Conga Connect is coming to the land down under! In just a little over a week, we’re hosting our Digital Document Transformation conference at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Sydney, and we want you to join us for a schedule packed with compelling content, innovative speakers, and a fantastic networking experience!

Conga Connect Sydney is a FREE event! You can register on the event site, and learn more about what we have in store for you on 20 June

We’ve also summed up a few of our favorite reasons why this is going to be such a valuable event for Conga customers and anyone interested in modernising their business through Digital Document Transformation:

1. Connect has the best keynote speakers

We don’t mean to brag, but we always invite the most engaging, inspirational speakers to present our Connect keynotes! This year, we’re thrilled to have Derek Laney, Head of Product Marketing at Salesforce, and Chris Riddell, futurist and thought leader, on our main stage! Learn more about our speakers from their bios:

Derek Laney is a keen advocate and commentator for customer-led digital transformation. Derek has worked for 19 years in customer relationship management, and 11 years at Salesforce and consultant to its largest customers helping drive their adoption of new and emerging technologies. As Head of Product Marketing, Derek leads marketing and go-to-market strategy for marketing, advertising, commerce, customer service, and platform products.

Chris Riddell is a true evangelist in today’s disrupted world, and a well renowned digital strategist, technology futurist and progressive thought leader. A global trailblazer, he has worked with some of the largest and most successful companies and brands in our modern world. Having lived and worked in countries such as the UK, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Kuwait, China, New Zealand and lately Australia, his understanding of our new world is compelling and thought provoking to say the least.

Notably, Chris was the first ever Chief Digital Officer (CDO) for MARS in Australia and New Zealand, architecting the corporate digital strategy behind brands such as Whiskas, Pedigree, Wrigley, Starburst, Masterfoods, Snickers and Maltesers to name but a few. As well as being a renowned independent digital and technology strategy advisor, he is also a board member for the first digital museum in Australia, the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (MADE).

2. You can spend dedicated time with Conga experts at a Solution Station

If you’re already using the Conga suite to elevate your business, you can take advantage of the opportunity to sit down with our experts for a dedicated session where you can really dig into your toughest problems. Book a 30-minute one-on-one session with a Conga technical expert to build a new use case, or troubleshoot or optimise an existing one on any of the products in our Digital Document Transformation Suite—Composer, Collaborate, Contracts, Contracts for Salesforce, Orchestrate, Grid, and Sign.

Use this time to understand how you can make your Conga investment work as hard as you do. You can secure your session now before the event.

3. Conga University will help you become your own Conga expert

Conga Connect offers highly-valuable educational sessions through our Conga University program. Enroll in courses that will dive into use cases for our Composer, Contracts, and Grid solutions, and participate in an interactive Q&A after each session. You will be able to self-enroll in the courses onsite at the event, so be on the lookout for the Conga University area.

Conga U courses will help prepare you for Conga Certification exams—Conga Connect Sydney will also feature a special Composer pre-certification session where you’ll receive a promo code to take the exam for FREE after the conference! 

4. Get the chance to interact with peers and see how Conga works in real life

Conga Connect Sydney is an interactive event! Be sure to join a Like Minds discussion for a deeper dive into the nitty-gritty details of Digital Document Transformation, and a chance to compare notes with like-minded attendees. Like Minds are round table discussions led by an expert moderator, where you can really get to the core of a specific topic with other attendees.

As always, you’ll have plenty of chances to network with peers throughout the conference, including an evening reception featuring drinks, canapes, and some immersive, VR fun!

Follow along on social media

As always, we’ll document all of Connect on social media. Follow the Conga profiles on Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook for updates throughout the event. But we want to see your experiences, too! Don’t forget to tag your posts and photos with #CongaConnect to join the larger conversation.
