LAST Conference 2016

We’re looking forward to joining LAST Conference in Melbourne this week, and excited to have a huge spread of our consultants running sessions for the 2016 schedule.   Over the years, we’ve enjoyed being a part of LAST’s journey.

Now a major community event, we are proud to have supported its growth as a grass-roots day for practitioners to get together and share their learnings with fellow experienced professionals.

LAST’s emphasis on sharing practical skills, real experiences and the latest in practice – is what has gained the interest of so many of our consultants to be involved throughout the years.

At Elabor8, we are focused on attracting and developing the brightest and most passionate people in the industry. We have made a commitment to our team to accelerate their professional development and help them achieve their career aspirations both within our company and beyond.

In 2016, nine of our people will be presenting and leading workshops, including two of our Principal Consultants and the Head of Elabor8 Academy. Learn more about Academy »

This year, Ryan McKergow, Lead Consultant at Elabor8 has joined others from the Australian Agile community to help run the event.


“Another LAST Conference is upon us, and this year we have a large contingent from Elabor8 either giving talks or running workshops. LAST’s goal of being ‘a mini-conference for Practitioners, by Practitioners’ aligns really well with what we’re all about. Everyone at Elabor8 either is or has been a practitioner whether that’s an Agile Coach, Scrum Master, or Business Analyst. I’m really excited to see so many of the team get involved and share their knowledge.

This year I’m involved in a different capacity at LAST. Instead of speaking myself, I’ve jumped in and helped out Craig and Ed with organising the “collaborative mindset and techniques” track. It has been a really interesting experience being on the organising side and hopefully I’ve pulled together some great talks and workshops for you to attend.”

“Elabor8 have been consistent supporters of LAST Conference since 2014. Support from like-minded companies helps us to keep LAST affordable and has helped us to continue to put on a highly collaborative and engaging event. Everyone involved really appreciates the support.”
