Speaker Bio:

Hear how the Netflix team made tough decisions about the hardest things - people, product and business - as it grew to support over 100 million members today. This is “inside baseball,” revealing the decision-making process behind some of Netflix’ toughest decisions and reinforcing the importance of strategy, data and intuition to inform decisions and to create a highly innovative product culture.
This highly interactive talk presents five, “What would you do?” case studies. It presents two frameworks for describing both company and product strategy and illustrates the importance of defining clear tactics and metrics against each strategy. You'll be surprised at the extent Netflix learned through failure to become the worldwide streaming giant that most people know and love today.

About the speaker: Gibson Biddle was VP of Product at Netflix, then became the Chief Product Officer of the textbook rental company, Chegg, that went public in 2013. Today, he's an EIR Product and adviser for multiple consumer tech companies, as well as a guest lecturer at both Stanford and Dartmouth.

This event is sponsored by PG Consulting ( PG Consulting offers growth consulting services to CEOs & delivers corporate and public growth product management workshops.
