- Learning to fail with Marc AbrahamMindspace Dam, Amsterdam, NH
Hi Product People,
“failure” is an essential part of trying - but still its hard to be “allowed to fail” given eg commercial pressures. We’re closing out the year with this complex but so important topic and couldn’t be more excited to have renowned speaker and long-tenured product executive Marc Abraham join us for this meetup!
Besides being a Product Executive at Asos, Intercom and currently Backbase, Marc is a regular on the Mind the Product-conference London stage and a long-time ProductTank organizer.
After the talk we’ll have roundtable discussions to share & discuss own experiences with failures and apply some of the techniques that Marc shares in his talks. Followed by mingling and talking product over drinks with fellow product people.
This will be an in-person event at Mindspace Dam co-working office courtesy of Netlight - thank you for sponsoring!
We hope to see you all there!
ABOUT THE TALK
Learning how to F.A.I.L. - As product people we want to be able to try new product ideas, experiment and learn. We accept that ideas or products will fail. However there are several pressures that are real and that prohibit failure: commercial, resources and culture. In this talk we'll talk about products not failing in vain, providing people with related tools and techniques.
