5 speaker announcements, 3 days, 1 great workshop — SND LOU

We’re ending our pre-4th of July week with some fireworks of our own. We’ve decided to announce two new speakers today instead of one: Michael Renaud, Creative Director of Pitchfork, and Trei Brundrett, VP of Product and Technology for Vox Media. If you haven’t been following the announcements this week, then you’ve hurt our feelings. Luckily, we don’t hold grudges in Louisville, so we’ll give you a quick recap of the five announcements for the week.

The SND Louisville workshop will take place November 7-9.

Speakers announcements for SND LOU start this week

We’re ready to start unveiling workshop information for SND Louisville, and the countdown is now underway. We’re pretty far along curating a great lineup of speakers. We’re excited, and not very good at keeping secrets; so, we’re not going to wait for one big reveal a couple months before the conference when the schedule is set. We’re announcing five speakers this week, and every week after we’ll unveil at least two names.
