The summer is perfect to take a break, relax and come back refilled with energy. It’s also a good time to reflect and see what we’d like to change in ourselves, in our role or in our organisation.

That’s why for our summer special hosted at HomeToGo, we’d like to invite you to join us to talk about the changes that are needed to build better products. Indeed, we all want to build great products that customers love, yet sometimes this requires change. We speak more and more about being data-informed, being experimentation-driven, doing more discovery work, but for these to happen, the right company culture has to be established. But it’s not all it takes, product people need to know how to drive changes in organisations too when needed.

On that note, we’re happy to announce two speakers:

Dominik Zins, VP of Product at HomeToGo

Product discovery in startups: How to nurture a discovery culture into a growing organisation
And as a summer special: How to find your ideal vacation rental in August, when everything seems to be booked out?

Shaun Russell, Product Coach

Uncomfortable Creatures: Make Great Products by Mastering Conflict & Communication
Shaun will explain how effective conflict and communication are fundamental to Product Management, and how we can use them to change the organisation around us, and build better products.
