Details

An open platform where attendees are welcomed and even encouraged to contribute a session to discuss, present, share, show or talk about an idea. This is an unconference style event so anyone can nominate themselves to speak, no experience needed (in advance!).

We don't care if you're not a seasoned presenter, this is a great opportunity to share in a positive environment.

The talks can be on anything analytics, data, conversion optimisation or product related...or they can just be an idea you think is worth sharing. The only requirements are passion and originality.

We've developed our own style over our past events, it's called "two talks and a speaker" (sometimes it's three talks and a speaker)

The idea is that the first talks are useful, informational, practical, case studies, tips and tricks or just basically some cool shit. The last talk is something unexpected and (usually) unrelated to the world of CRAP...

Agenda:

18:45: Pizza and beer (kindly provided by our sponsors!)
