Adrenalin Sessions

Event series
Knowledge sharing

Adrenalin Sessions was born out of a desire to promote knowledge sharing and collaboration to help drive Sydney’s digital industry forward. Launched in 2016, this regular event series is designed to be short, sharp and informative. At each event Adrenalin hosts three speakers, all experts in their field, as they provide their insights on a particular topic.

The free sessions last just one hour and provide practical takeaways and tips for the audience members. Each speaker has less than 15 mins to share their knowledge and experience on a topic of their choice. The atmosphere and setting is relaxed and informal. Attendees can expect to start the morning with freshly made-to-order coffees & pastries (or end the day with drinks & canapés) and leave with actionable, intelligent insights.
