ABOUT THE TALK

Hacking Your Product Leader Career

In this talk, you’ll learn the technical skills of a product manager, plus the leadership skills required as you grow. You’ll see how a highly strategic, "hacking" approach builds momentum in your career and you’ll walk away knowing how to accelerate the career progress through your own "personal board of directors."
