A full day conference - 10 brilliant talks by 10 brilliant speakers

We are all aware that SEO is a broad and multi-faceted specialism with numerous career opportunities. But how do you figure out what you want out of your career and how to get there? This talk will help the audience understand how to design their ideal role, identify what parts of it can be accomplished in their current workplace, and find roles that will allow them to further develop into their specialties.
