ProductTank #15 - Robyn Hyde: A Product Manager's Guide to Saving the Planet

We're back! After a long break, we're thrilled to be meeting in-person to celebrate World Product Day! We can't wait to get together at the Exeter Phoenix (new venue!) and look forward to seeing you there!

Spaces are limited so please free up your seat if you know you can't attend.

🎤 A Product Manager's Guide to Saving the Planet

We are in the midst of an energy market crisis in the UK. Sky rocketing bills fuelling a cost of living crisis and geopolitical instability threatening energy security. And yet against this backdrop there is more investment in the UK than ever before aimed at achieving net zero by 2050.

In this talk, Robyn will discuss how the UK energy transition is supposed to work and gives a product managers perspective on the practical and ethical challenges of achieving a fully renewable grid. How the challenges that apply to the complete redesign of the energy system, apply to day to day product management too. And if there's time, maybe even some reasons to be optimistic about the future.
