Connections that count

Nov 16, 2023 | AgileAus, Feature Articles

As Rachel Slattery mused in her ode to work friendship:’building relationships embedded in trust can help us acquire professional social capital over time allowing us to access much wider areas of knowledge and expertise.’

This has been proven true many times over for those who make up the AgileAus community. As a forum that prides itself on representing the many flavours of Agile, AgileAus encourages the spontaneous conversations and connections that have the potential to blossom into fruitful collaborations and treasured friendships. Over the years we have been delighted to witness (and partake in!) many such friendships that make attending every AgileAus event feel like a warm hug and food for the soul.

The common denominator of those who have been involved from day dot, all the way to a steady stream of warmly welcomed newbies – is curiosity, and a passion for learning and sharing better ways of working.

Watching camaraderie bloom between those who volunteer for, speak at, sponsor, support and attend AgileAus is a privilege not taken lightly. We recognise the need, now more than ever to nurture these networks, both fresh and seasoned – allowing the community to flourish and reach its full potential. You really never know who might be waiting to chat with you at an AgileAus event!

We’re delighted to share some opportunities on the horizon that we hope will spark joy through connection. In just a couple of weeks, the AgileAus End of Year Celebration kicks off in Melbourne on Thursday 30 November 2023. You can find out more about this and register here. You may also like to consider submitting an Expression Of Interest to speak at AgileAus24 in the New Year (watch this space for more info), or putting your hand up to be a reviewer to help build the Conference program. If you’re interested in the latter please do introduce yourself via email to – we’d love to hear from you!

To all the friends of AgileAus, we tip our hats to you – and cannot wait to see you all again. To those we have yet to meet, we welcome you with open arms – and hope to see you soon smile
