The Top Tech Trends Debate returns in 2022 with a great line up and the opportunity to meet in-real-life.

Unlike anything that exists in Australia, the Top Tech Trends Debate showcases the visions of five leading industry professionals. They pitch their ideas on the next big thing, and the audience votes.


Feedback from last year: 

“Was such a great debate! I really enjoyed it. Well done everyone.”

Cracker event tonight, well done. Thanks for the invite, I really enjoyed being a part of it.”

"That was really good fun, I enjoyed it!”

 “This was my first Churchill Club event and thought it was really interesting! Would love to join the next one in person. Thank you.”
“The networking event went really well considering how hard it is to pull off online. Can't wait to go again next year, this year was really good considering the circumstances.”


The event is a replica of the Top Tech Trends event that has been successfully run by the Churchill Club in Silicon Valley for 20 consecutive years. It has now become a Melbourne feature event not to be missed.

The event features as a closing event for the emerging technologies powering investment stream of the State Government of Victoria's Digital Innovation Festival.

Returning for its fourth year, over 100 participants attended the Top Tech Trends Debate 2021 held online on Thursday 26 August, 2021 to hear about the emerging trends of the future.

The Churchill Club’s headline event showcased six powerhouse visions for the future of tech, with Dr Andrew Webb’s trend of Proteomics taking the crown for this year's debate.

Proteomics is the analysis of the entire protein complement of a cell, tissue, or organism under a specific and defined set of conditions.

Dr Webb believes that the science of proteomics will transform our understanding of disease and drive personalised healthcare.

Dr Webb and his team of researchers believes that proteomics will change the way in which various diseases are diagnosed and treated. With $1.4 billion already invested in proteomics in the US, excluding academic initiatives, Dr Webb believes we will start to see a bigger impact in the public domain from the significant research underway.
