Slack’s annual conference this year features what will no doubt be a mega-inspiring keynote from Serena Williams. Outside of sports stardom, expect seminars on the future of work, driving agility in the workforce and potentially some insights into their long-awaited IPO.

This year’s conference is aligned to three tracks:

  1. Pathfinder: for business leaders looking to utilize Slack to drive a more agile and strategic workforce
  2. Opportunity: for IT admins wanting to hear more about peer level success in introducing and getting the most out of Slack
  3. Curiosity: aimed at developers looking for hands-on Slack demos and scenarios to better their own Slack environments
