ProductTank March is all about delivering in the not-for-profit world. Three great speakers curated by Sarah Prag share their hands on experiences of product management in places where “product” was a new concept and where success wasn't tied to the bottom line.
We are back in the heart of Shoreditch, at Central Foundation Boy's School on Cowper Street. Right next to Old Street tube station.
Nic Newman | Product strategist
Nic is former Head of Product Development for BBC Journalism and works across the News, Arts and non-profit sectors. He’ll share his experience of introducing product thinking to the Art Fund, the national fundraising charity for art. Specifically he will talk about the product and stakeholder challenges involved with delivering two mobile apps and a responsive design website in limited time and on a low budget.

Dominic Vallely | CEO TheGivingLab.org
Behold the power of farting. TheGivingLab creates and tests new digital ideas in the charity sector. Dom will be sharing details of Britain’s Biggest Fart App, a farting experiment to get young men engaged in giving developed for Comic Relief. He’ll also touch on the limits of hackdays in creating new not-for-profit products.

There will then be a short panel discussion and Q&A with all three speakers.
Registration will start at 6:30pm, with the first presenter beginning at 7:00pm.
Finally we will have the usual networking over drinks before we repair to a nearby pub for more drinks around 9:30pm!
