Philosophy

Above All Human is a technology and innovation conference about driving change and solving big challenges. We bring together all kinds of people for a day of insights and innovation from the world’s most pioneering minds. The spirit of Above All Human is, at its core, about technology and science in the service of humanity: we are curious about opportunities, mindful of values and driven by a desire to effect change in our lifetimes. 

We don’t talk about tech for tech’s sake. We don’t trade off current buzzwords or trends. We foster expansive thinking and new ideas, big and small. We carefully curate the experience of above all human to be as impactful as possible; we want you to be energised, inspired, dig in and get nerdy (we come from tech roots, after all) and maybe come away with an idea to solve a problem that hasn’t been solved yet. 

We’re proud to be run and supported by Startup Victoria.
