SPEAKERS & TALKS:
**James Mayes, CEO @ Mind the Product**
James will bring some insights gathered from Mind the Product and ProductTank around the world, drawing on the community of 180+ cities to share thoughts on emerging trends, useful data points and the challenges of the next few years. James is in Singapore as part of a research exercise for the Mind the Product conference in 2020, so is also keen to hear YOUR thoughts on what topics should be on the agenda for the main event, other Product speakers in the region who should be given a bigger stage, and any other interesting aspects you’d like to highlight!
**Janna Bastow, Co-founder of ProdPad and Mind the Product**
Janna Bastow is co-founder of ProdPad, product management and roadmapping software for product teams. Janna is also co-founder of ProductTank and Mind the Product, a global community of product managers. She often starts and stops conversations with the question: “What problem are you trying to solve?”
The way companies measure team performance is broken and this needs to change. Vanity metrics, timelines and burn-down charts only lead to wasted efforts and stress. In this talk, Janna shows you how to disrupt yourself, refocus, and break down the silos that may be leading you to build the next Blockbuster instead of the next Netflix.
**Christine Sou, Product @ Transferwise**
Christine Sou is the Product Manager responsible for the Australia and New Zealand markets at TransferWise, with a mission to make international money transfers faster, cheaper, and more convenient for customers.
She has launched innovative products to 250+ million customers for tech companies like PlayStation and Zillow. Christine moved from San Francisco to contribute to the FinTech space in Singapore. Outside of her work, she leads the Women in Product chapter in Singapore, a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing women with equal access and representation in product management.
