Speak at WDC2018

Speak at WDC2018

Conference season is well under way, and this means WDC2018 is on the horizon as October slowly approaches.

Have you ever wanted to get up on stage and share your passion for the Web?
WDC2018 is taking place in early October and currently has opportunities for debut speakers to present a talk in front of 200 like-minded professionals. There are 2 different slots available this year: a full 30-40 minute talk or a shorter 15 minute lightning talk.

Full Talks

Each year WDC gives 2 or 3 people the chance to make their debut onto the speaking circuit. So if you have a passion for what you do in a web-related field and would like to share it with others this is a great opportunity for you!

For the chance to be considered for a full speaking slot please email [email protected] with the following information:

  • Email Subject: Speaking at WDC2018
  • Title of your proposed talk
  • A short overview of the talk

Lightening talks

3 slots for lightening talks are available for 2018. These 15 minute slots are designed to give you the chance to share a passion you have, it doesn't have to be a web related passion but something you think anyone would find interesting.

Sound good? All you need to do is submit a talk outline to [email protected] with the subject Lightning Talk WDC2018, easy.

WDC is taking place in early October 2018 (date to be confirmed soon) so you will need to be available during this time and be able to travel to Bristol.


Whilst self promotion is allowed, it should not be the subject of the talk itself. Networking opportunities are provided during breaks and after party for you to really talk to attendees about who you are and what you do.

Try and make your talk as unique as possible. Whilst we accept overlap is a nature of the very varied industry we occupy, the talk should be your own and not someone else's.

Please ensure you are free in early October to travel to Bristol for the conference.

You should be ok with what to expect from speaking at WDC.


Speakers will be chosen based on how talks fit in with the entire WDC event and will be judged on how it fits the ethos of the conference.

I will do my best to respond to everyone who submits a talk. Anyone who submits a talk and doesn't get chosen to speak will be given a discount code for a ticket to the event.

Remember, its about getting out and doing something and most of all having fun!
