Silicon Block Party aims to combine the industry up-and-comers with the experts in the field for a unique networking and knowledge sharing experience.

The first two occurred in March and June, which were both great successes. Guests indulged in social media engagement and listened to Monty Hamilton (Telstra Digital), Ben Chan (Envato), Daniel Nelson (PayPal Braintree), Nigel Dalton (REA Group), Ben Esakoff (Nobody Denim) and Blake Hutchinson (Xero) speak about their incredible experiences as business leaders.

The third had a stellar line-up too, centered around the topic: International startup expansion: how do you translate a global brand into a new market?

Col Kennedy (Global Head of Marketing and eCommerce of The Cotton On Group), Helen Souness (Managing Director of Etsy Australia and Asia) and Matthew Denman (Operations and Logistics Manager of Uber) presented engaging TED-style talks and then sat on a panel with Rhys Hayes (Founder at IE).
