WhisperFest 2020

MONDAY-THURSDAY | 23-26 November 2020

We want to be the kind of academy we want to see: inclusive, empowered, engaged and kind.

We have been holding small networking events in Australia for 5 years and COVID-19 inspired us to open these to the world.

#Whisperfest 2020 was a series of online events: workshops, knowledge sharing opportunities and fireside chats around four themes:

  • Monday 23rd of November: Wellbeing
  • Tuesday 24th of November: Collegiality
  • Wednesday 25th of November: Facing disruption
  • Thursday 26th of November: Taking back control

There’s a podcast series from the #Whisperfest sessions! Check out the episodes on your preferred platform: Buzzsprout | Apple | Spotify

#Whisperfest took place online – via Zoom and other channels – in November and was completely free. This event has taken place. Here is a listing of all the sessions.

#Whisperfest was brought to you by the Whisper Collective:
