200+ Speakers

Yes you read that right. We aim to have over 200 speakers at the summit. How? Well, every delegate who attends the summit is a speaker as he/she will be able to answer the questions put forward by the audience. He/she will be able to debate and let the audience know their perspective on which marketing technique worked for them and what did they do to solve a marketing puzzle in their organisation. There are no panel discussions. Only Q&As and Debates moderated by 1 or multiple subject matter experts who will also add their point of view. It’s a brand new concept loved by the delegates of past Intrigue Summits. We are telling you, this is not an ordinary summit. Be prepared to get intrigued! Register Now. Welcome Marketers to the Intrigue Summit!

Ethics in Technology @ UNSW Business School Lounge

Ethics in Technology


Software is eating the world. When Marc Andreessen wrote that in 2011 he meant it as a defense of the Silicon Valley venture capital business model. There’s no bubble, he wanted you to understand; the software industry is here to stay and is taking over the economies of the world.

Software is still eating the world. There’s a bit more of a sinister undertone to that in 2018, though. The envelope of what is possible has expanded. The consequences of mistakes and errors of judgment have been felt. Whether deservedly or not, there is a broader sense of the impact that software can have on the lives of it’s users.

Software eats what it is told to eat. Software is – for now, despite Elon’s fears about AI – merely a tool. A tool that reduces the costs of transactions to near-zero, vastly broadening the scale of who it affects. Who is affected and how is dictated by the creators and controllers of the software. To be more precise, by the ethics of those who create the software.

So what are you telling software to eat?

Speakers to be announced soon.
