Xerocon 2022 lineup so far

When Kemi shares her story and insights on life, you’ll be moved and inspired, and ultimately leave feeling empowered to fulfil your own potential. English born with Nigerian heritage, Kemi spent her entire childhood in foster care. She draws on her early experiences of disempowerment to offer truth to the notion that where you start in life isn’t where you must end up. In a space that is often crowded with conflicting and confusing messaging around what it means to live an empowered and passionate life, Kemi’s humorous and unapologetic narrative is refreshingly rare. Her insights around choice and empowerment resonate powerfully with people from all walks of life.

The Foundation's vision is to create a brighter future for Indigenous children through education. In 2014, Adam was named Australian of the Year for his community work and advocacy in the fight against racism, and empowering the next generation of Indigenous Australians. One of the most decorated AFL players of all time, Adam is a dual AFL Brownlow Medallist and four-time All-Australian.
In a must-see opening session, Steve Vamos, Xero’s CEO, will open up Xerocon Sydney and share his vision for Xero as we come together to celebrate, learn, and plan for what’s next. From partner stories of innovation and agility through to tales of great effort and the challenge of the past two years, Steve will take you through ways in which we are creating a small business platform that puts our accountants and bookkeepers at the centre of our efforts.
Rachael Powell, Xero’s Chief Customer Officer talks with Alasdair McGill, co-founder of Ashton McGill, about how to overcome the barriers to digital adoption and shift the conversation beyond just tax and compliance to a true advisory discussion that can accelerate business success. The talk will include reference to Xero’s latest Xero Small Business Insights (XSBI) special report focused on cash flow and late payments.
Accountants and bookkeepers have carried a heavy load in the past two years as they’ve helped small businesses navigate digital acceleration and shift business models overnight to stay in touch with customers. In this session Anna Curzon, Chief Product Officer at Xero, will take you through how we evolved and refreshed Xero’s products at every stage of this journey to meet the immediate needs of our advisors, and what we’re doing to ensure the business of doing the books will be more intuitive, connected and faster than ever before.
The inspirational speakers won’t be the only thing to move you on day two. The famous Xerocon party features live music and entertainment that will have you cutting shapes on the dancefloor well into the evening. Party tickets are available now for $100 each.
There’ll be two days packed with content, giving you the opportunity to learn more about the Xero product and our plans for the future. Get inspired on other topics such as winning the war on talent and everything in between.
There’s plenty of time to have fun and form stronger bonds with your team. In previous years we’ve had karaoke rooms, bumper cars, a merry-go-round, virtual reality games, a pub on the green, and an indoor cricket pitch. You can expect more of the same in 2022.
