Regional Scrum Gathering® Melbourne 2020/21 is currently organising new dates,

so we’ve organised a little something to keep you energised – LIGHTNING TALKS !!


We will be having a break in September and October to homeschool, but hope to have new dates for you shortly.

One thing we’ve learned from our new Covid-centric existence, is that organising a conference that can actually take place, is next to impossible.  Scrum Australia 2020 morphed into Scrum Australia 2021, and now it is to become Scrum Australia 2022.    Based on Government forecasts to open up the states when vaccination rates reach certain targets, we aim to run the 2020/21 Scrum Australia conference in Melbourne in mid 2022.

To keep our community engaged, we are running a series of virtual, lunchtime Lightning Talks (nearly) every month.   Each event runs for 90 minutes: 3 presentations of approximately 20 minutes each (plus a small Q&A time).  To power this way forward, our Silver Sponsor Telstra® has generously donated the infrastructure and manpower from the team who run the successful in-house Unconference® events.

Each event allows our (very patient) speakers to display their presentation skills, so you may get a taste of what will be on offer at the conference.  We are also open to submissions from other members of our community, so please email our team if you are interested in presenting at one of our Lightning Talks.

We are hoping this will get us all talking about the best ways to engage teams as we begin to return to the workplace.

All events are free, so do not miss out on this opportunity and REGISTER NOW #

If you have not already done so, please sign up to our mailing list to be informed of all the latest developments.




Networking Galore

Are you’re looking to hire new staff and want the best in the industry?  You could be the one looking for a change in employer, but want to meet the company face to face? Or, do you just want to network with like-minded Agile and Scrum enthusiasts?

Well, Scrum Australia has it all!  Our conferences have representatives from all industries: governmental and private, large and small, national and international.  Our Jobs Board enables you to seek new staff or promote yourself to new employers.  It’s free for all attendees.

Our job is to bring you together: the rest is up to you.

Fantastic Sponsors

Our sponsors all have one thing in common: they are passionate about Scrum and the our community!  We’ve had many sponsors return to sponsor us again and again. Our sponsors are not just a name and a logo.  They are people, and it is those people who enrich our conference.

If you’re interested in sponsoring, please contact our team for a prospectus via our Contact Us page, or at


Warm, welcoming & nurturing atmosphere

Our conferences assemble participants from across the globe, yet are small enough that everyone’s contribution is valued: from practitioners who have had years of experience, to people experiencing Scrum for the first time.

Our Scrum Australia team are there to welcome you and help you with any queries you may have; both on the day and by emailing our team.

At Scrum Australia, we want you to learn, to teach and, most of all to enjoy yourself!


Quality Keynote Speakers

Quality keynote speakers are one of the biggest draw-cards to the Scrum Australia Gatherings. In the past we have hosted some of the world’s most recognised authorities in Scrum and Agile: Christopher Avery, Steve Denning, Kenny Ruben and Stacia Heimgartner-Viscadi (who is returning as a presenter for 2021!). In 2021 we have the pleasure of Lyssa Adkins, Andrea Tomasini and our very own Matiu Bush joining us a keynote speaker

Superior Sessions & Workshops

Our presenters hail both from Australia and around the globe.  Their contribution brings a breadth of knowledge and experience to our sessions and workshops, that sets us apart from many other local conferences. We have proudly ignited the speaking career of many a practitioner.

Coaches’ Clinic

We provide a Coaches Clinic that offers participants complimentary coaching with experienced Scrum coaches: sourced from our participants, sponsors and speakers. Our experienced facilitator will aim match you with the coach best suited to your needs.  For more on Coaches’ Clinic please see here.

Open Space

Open Space is a self-organising session where participants work together to create their own schedule. Open Space gives you the opportunity to propose topics that you and your fellow Scrum-ites can explore in a open and relaxed environment.  For more on What is Open Space, see here.
