Speakers and MC

Most of NetHui will be made up of breakout sessions that are designed by the community in the programme development. But on top of this we will also have a high profile keynote speaker for the opening ceremony and a great panel session for the plenary room.

Once our speakers have been confirmed, we will pop them up here for you all to check out!

Jillian York - our international keynote

Jillian C. York is a writer and activist focused on the intersection of technology and policy. Based in Berlin, she currently serves as the Director for International Freedom of Expression at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, where she works on free expression, privacy, and digital security.
