We're back for Year 2 of World Product Day! Get ready to unite with product people around the world and celebrate! I am very excited to announce our program for World Product Day! We'll kick off a little earlier than usual at 6:00pm with some networking and drinks. Starting around 6:15pm, we'll be livestreaming Marty Cagan (author of "Inspired") from ProductTank NYC. If you can't make it until our normal time, we'll take a little extra networking time when his livestreamed talk ends (around 7pm). Then at 7:30pm, we have the privilege of hearing from a special guest who will be joining us in Dallas from ProductTank Los Angeles, Akanksha Garg! Akanksha is General Manager, Product and Operations at CyberU, and previously led product and learning initiatives at companies such as Walt Disney and Cornerstone On Demand. Moving from Head of Product into a General Manager role, Akanksha will talk to us about how the skills we build as product people can prepare us for bigger roles in company leadership. We look forward to seeing you there! A special thank you to Pivotal Labs (https://www.pivotal.io) for hosting us on World Product Day.
