Product is hard.

No question about it.

Which makes leading good product teams even harder.

So, we're bringing two top product leaders to tell you more about how good product teams face the good times and bad.

It's going to be awesome. 🚀

...But don't take our word for it, join us for networking, a few fantastic talks, and Q&A.
