The role of AI in our society

Continuing the discussion on Day 1’s keynote themes, hear from a range of guests from Microsoft, our customers, industry partners and academics on what the next industrial revolution, fuelled by AI, looks like. How do we ensure that AI is designed and used responsibly? How are early adopters using AI and what benefits is it bringing to their business? And how will AI impact employment, jobs and the way we work?

Transform your workplace with the latest devices

What’s the best device for your employees, or to upgrade your meeting spaces?  Why do 95% of Surface users say they have the right tools to get their job done?  The Surface family combines beautifully innovative hardware; is built for teamwork; integrated for simplicity; and has intelligent security built-in.

Hear from our panel how the product line has evolved; discover how Surface is helping customers accelerate their digital transformation; and see how meeting room solutions built on Microsoft 365 can enable the best teamwork.

Cultural transformation at Microsoft

It’s been four years since we announced our mission to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more. Now, join leaders from across our business in conversation on what we’ve learned - how we worked out who we are; why we exist; and what tactics we employed to reboot our culture. 

We’ll explore the learnings from obsessing over what matters to our customers; becoming a more diverse and inclusive company; and operating as one company instead of multiple siloed businesses. We’ll also discuss how we aligned our systems and processes to our new culture, including aligning our rewards and recognition framework to impact, not activity.
