Call for Speakers and Trainers

We are looking for speakers

We are focusing on our “by example” theme, therefore we are looking for real life case studies, adoption reports, etc. We’d like you to share examples of adopting particular practices (pick one and dive into details) or failure examples and reasons (we are all interested in avoiding the same mistakes). During your submission you will be asked to state which practice is covered by your talk.

The time slot for your talk is 15-minute (+5m for q&a) – we do a focused, TED-style format of presentations.

Your talk should focus on one particular practice. Good examples: “planning poker”, “story maps”, “merit money”, etc. Bad examples: “agile”, “transformation”, “scrum”, etc.

In case of speakers who have not yet spoken at ABE we ask you to include either a link to one of your recorded talks or a recorded short introduction to a submitted topic (so that we can assess your stage performance and English proficiency). It is not mandatory although recommended.

Should you have more than one topic to present do not hesitate and submit them all.

We are looking for trainers for the Dojo

At AgileByExample 2013 we launched the first Dojo, which was a day of 12 half-day workshops. They became extremely popular. Since 2013 we held over 100 workshops. Our Dojo became a unique feature of ABE, as we are the only agile conference (at least in Poland) doing so many workshops for so many attendees.

The workshop should be 3–3.5-hour long and be for 10–30 people. Regarding the topics, we prefer soft skills (conflicts, communication, etc.), product related (vision, design, backlog management, etc.), agile practices & roles (retrospectives, product owner, scrum master, etc.) or even introductions to methods (GetKanban game, Beer game), although we may do a few technical as well (TDD, BDD, etc.).

Please let us know if you are willing to do the same workshop twice (both morning and evening session).


All speakers and trainers will get one free ticket to the conference (Dojo included) and one coupon for additional ticket purchase with 50% discount.

We do not cover transport and accommodation.

In case an accepted speaker has bought a ticket already, there will be a possibility to transfer the ticket to another person or get a 100% refund.


If you have any questions, feel free to send us an email at


The deadline for call for Speakers & Trainers is on May 31st, 2024.

The Conference Program Committee will review and select proposals for conference presentations. We will be contacting you back in June / July and the final agenda will be published mid August.
