THANK YOU to everyone who has helped develop the speakers list. The more you contribute, the more useful the list becomes. Every single entry is appreciated! (We are also grateful for edits and enhancements, though those are harder to quantify.)


Our goal is that wherever in the world someone wants to host an Open event, there will be someone within that country listed in our database – ideally, multiple people! Help bring the Open movement to every corner of the world.


The Open movement has many facets, and we want to cover them all. Combined with geographic spread, a wide range of topics will make this list powerful. Please add any you feel are missing when you submit a speaker.
