Barbican, 18 OCTOBER

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 London exclusively for product leaders is taking place the day before #mtpcon, on Thursday, October 18. 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

This afternoon event is limited to just 100 invite-only attendees, 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!
