The Evolve segment of Brighton conference Develop will this year be keynoted by Valve business development director Jason Holtman, organisers said today.

Holtman will deliver a speech called Everyone’s Business is Business, in which he’ll detail how companies “can lay the foundation for better business decisions and better products by fostering a system in which traditional business functions are not artificially separated from the individuals who develop content and features,” according to the release.

The Steam boss said: “Working in a flat, no-management structure means that everyone at Valve drives business, press-relations and marketing decisions in everything Valve does.

“This keynote will describe and discuss how many of those decisions were made for various Valve products, Steam features and third party games on Steam.”

Develop takes place in Brighton between July 10-12.
