Thank you. Speaker Bio: How do you go about creating products used by billions of people? What are the new rules shaping the future of connected technology? The more connected we become to our tech products, the more we expect the same from them. They are essentially the new extension of ourselves. Drawing from her work experience as an executive at places like Facebook, Nokia, and Electronic Arts, as well as extensive interviews with executives at Airbnb, Pandora, and Uber, SC Moatti lays out the three rules that every product needs to be successful. About the speaker SC Moatti: SC Moatti is a technology visionary, entrepreneur and investor. She is the founding partner of Mighty Capital, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm, and Products That Count, one of the largest communities of product managers, leaders and founders in the world. Previously, she built products that billions of people use at Facebook, Nokia and Electronic Arts. She also serves on boards of both public and private companies, including mobile technology giant Opera Software (OPERA:Oslo). An award-winning bestselling author, Moatti frequently gives keynotes on business and technology, and has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, the Harvard Business Review, and on NPR. She lectures at Stanford Graduate School of Business, where she earned her MBA and has a Master of Science in electrical engineering.

Thank you. Product Austin (http://productaustin.com/) is excited to bring you Gibson Biddle, to our September 2017 speaker event. 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.

Thank you. Product Austin is excited to have Dan Olsen (https://www.linkedin.com/in/danolsen98) share the key ideas from his new bestselling book The Lean Product Playbook (http://www.amazon.com/Lean-Product-Playbook-Innovate-Products/dp/1118960874/). Most of us are familiar with Lean Startup and its valuable concepts, such as product-market fit and the build-measure-learn loop. However, many product teams run into challenges when they try to adopt Lean Startup principles because they lack specific guidance on what to do and how to do it. The Lean Product Playbook provides specific, step-by-step guidance on how to apply Lean Startup ideas. In his talk, Dan will describe an actionable model for product-market fit and a 6-step process that explains how to rapidly iterate based on customer feedback, illustrated with real world examples. Speaker Bio: Dan Olsen is an entrepreneur, consultant, and Lean product expert. At Olsen Solutions, he works with companies to build great products and strong product teams, often as interim VP of Product. His clients include Facebook, Box, Microsoft, Medallia, and One Medical Group. Prior to consulting, Dan worked at Intuit, where he led the Quicken product team. He also led product management at social networking pioneer Friendster and was the cofounder and CEO of TechCrunch award winner YourVersion, a personalized news startup. Dan wrote the bestseller The Lean Product Playbook, published by Wiley, and organizes the Lean Product & Lean UX Silicon Valley Meetup.
