Leadership Forum

Monday, July 16
Terra Gallery


Product Management continues to evolve, and more and more product leaders like you are emerging as organizations embrace your ability to impact the business. Yet while the wider product management community has grown by leaps and bounds there is no place for you to come together with your peers and discuss the challenges unique to product leadership. Until now.

Our second pre-conference event in San Francisco exclusively for product leaders is taking place the day before #mtpcon, on Monday, July 16. Take time before the conference to talk about the unique challenges of product strategy, building and leading product teams, and all the other stuff that gets us excited.

This is your chance to get together with your peers and talk about the unique challenges of product strategy, building and leading product teams, and all the other stuff that gets us excited.

Exclusively for Product Leaders

There will only be around 100 attendees for this invite-only half-day event, and with an array of keynotes and panels that means there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, interact with the speakers, and network and share your own lessons with each other.

Apply for an invite code!


This event is invite only, and invites and tickets are non-transferable. We promise the event will be free from recruiters and vendors so you will be surrounded only by your leadership peers!

THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT but if you are a product leader – Director, VP, CPO or equivalent – and want to attend events like this in future, you can apply to join our Leaders Program.
