Join us for a breath of fresh air.

One year on from DFTB Live + Connected, we are delighted to bring together 19 leading storytellers and thinkers from across the globe to help you explore the human stories that shape our experience.

Stories of us, human stories, uplifting stories. Despite the torrid swirls of grating systems and the very human struggle, what we do truly matters.

Of course there will be lots of the usual DFTB magic – great stories, phenomenal speakers, in-depth conversation, opportunities for networking and meeting colleagues and friends, and a little bit of music, as well as the unexpected.

These are the stories that shape us: our past, the present and beyond.

Join us for something different.
