LeadDev New York is back

After two years away, we'll be returning to New York on April 6 & 7, 2022!

About LeadDev

LeadDev New York is here to help engineering leaders become more effective in their roles. We do this by helping tech leads, engineering managers, staff engineers, and other senior leaders to master four key elements of their role: Team, Tech, Process, and Personal Development. We hold events in London, San Francisco, Berlin - and will be joined by over 800+ incredible engineering leaders in New York!

Being a LeadDev speaker

Working with speakers is one of our favourite things about running LeadDev. We love to giving you the opportunity to share your stories and knowledge with our audience. As a speaker for the event, we'd also offer you:

  • A free ticket to the conference
  • A complimentary ticket to a LeadDev conference in 2023
  • 3 nights accommodation at the conference hotel
  • Economy travel expenses
  • $500 honorarium paid post-conference
  • Coverage of miscellaneous expenses
  • Professional speaker coaching if requested
  • Dedicated support from our team at all stages of your participation in the conference

What topics are we interested in?

LeadDev’s core focus is on four main themes: Team, Tech, Process, and Personal Development. We’ve detailed a bit about them below - but if you have an idea that doesn’t quite fit, let us know anyway! We reserve a few slots at every event for special wildcard talks!

  • Team (anything related to people management, inclusive & diverse environments, hiring & retention, challenging issues etc.)
  • Tech (anything related to new languages, frameworks & technologies, trends & changes, scaling, architecture etc.)
  • Process  (anything related to the way your team works, Agile & other delivery methods, maintaining a high-performing team etc.)
  • Personal Development (anything related to improving leadership skills, maintaining your mental health, adapting to a new role etc.)


The CFP will close on 13 December 2021 at 12:01am PST, 3:01am EST, 8:01am GMT. You will be notified no later than eight weeks after this date if you’re invited to speak. If you’ve purchased a ticket in the meantime, we will refund it if you’re invited as a speaker. The questions we ask are not shared beyond the programming committee.
