Nature to Nurture Connection ...
Every year billions of dollars are spent targeting the youth market with the intention of helping them gain employment, get an education or encouraging them to use a product/service. However, the truth of the matter is 74% of the youth market do not believe that brands engage with them effectively
Who is speaking ?
A full day packed with industry experts, youth leaders & influencers as well as Year13's team of Engagement Specialists
The original Year13 success story and mother goose of Year13, Blake started alongside the founders as a freckly, 19-year-old university drop out. Constantly reminding the team that she did in fact ‘go to a selective school,’ Blake has completely broken the mould of whatever it means to be a dropout, working her way up from a freelance writing gig to become the operational backbone of Year13's movement. Blake's intimate understanding of the youth cohort drives the user experience behind year13 and ensures that we are never far from the pulse of Australian Youth.
“You’ll never get anywhere being the class clown.” Saxon is the founder of Year13, a boisterous and passionate visionary with a mission to help young people navigate the crazy cycles of life. Unfortunately, being 27, he does bring up the office median age to 23, but the energy he puts into the execution of his vision reminds us that this clown has a few tricks up his sleeve.
Will’s whole life has been about building things- from Lego blocks to carpentry to engineering, and things haven’t changed. Will’s the man behind the machinery. He’s the type of guy that looks at data, understands it, creates a funky info-graph and then explains it to you in a way that leaves you thinking “ahhh that makes sense!”
Emma became part of the Year13 team when, fresh out of school, she hit up Year13 on Snapchat asking for a writing gig. Fast forward a year and Emma is the heading up the content team at Year13. With her unique voice and inherent understanding of youth culture, Emma has cemented her place at Year13 as content extraordinaire and did it all without a university degree. She is the brains behind much of what you read on Year13’s site and social media channels and a valuable asset to Year13’s youth engagement strategy.

Why should you attend ?
My learnings from attending the YES event inspired sustainable change from a strategic and action perspective in my role and had a flow on to an increase in opportunity for the youth we work with. I highly recommend an open mind and 2 big ears if you choose to attend the 2018 event.
The Youth Engagement Summit provided a valuable insight into the mindset of young Australians with clear and practical take away strategies in cutting through to the youth market. The Year13 team and speakers provided an in depth and practical analysis of social media and content marketing that we have been able to apply to our own processes.
It was hard to accept this alternative pathway for my daughter before coming along to your conference last year and keeping involved with your organisation. It taught me that my daughter will be ok and land on her feet – whatever pathway she takes, thank you for imparting your knowledge – it has been amazing!! You guys do such a wonderful job
What will they be speaking about?
