What we're about

ProductTank provides an opportunity for Product Managers in London to exchange ideas and experiences about Product Design, Development and Management, Business Modelling, Metrics, User Experience and all the other things that get us excited.

Events include talks from guest speakers on topics around product management, networking opportunities, and a good old-fashioned chin-wag over a beer or two.

We're open to companies big and small. We also welcome early-stage technology businesses looking to learn how to get their ideas off the ground.

We also have a blog, where we encourage the community to get engaged by commenting on or writing new posts for http://www.mindtheproduct.com , as well as the world's largest product conferences http://mtpcon.com

Creating an environment in which people feel comfortable to take risks is key to fostering innovative workplaces and stronger interpersonal relationships. In this talk, we’ll be exploring practical ways for you to create this feeling within your teams and working relationships. -------------------------------------------------------- Leading yourself Ben Laplanche - Executive Coach & Product Manager at Snyk https://www.linkedin.com/in/benlaplanche/ The word leadership is inherently loaded with expectations, standards, hierarchy and book lists longer than I can recount. We all have people that we consider to be great leaders and as an industry we tend to put these people on a pedestal. As Product Managers we thrive in uncertainty when it comes to our product, but when it comes to leadership it can feel overwhelming. So how do you navigate uncertainty when it’s about working with people? In this talk Ben will share his own story and how he learnt that he needed to lead for himself, in order to lead for others. You’ll hear about his lessons learned and the perspectives he now holds, with some actionable points to take away for your own journey of leadership. -------------------------------------------------------- Akil Benjamin - Head of Research + Strategy at Comuzi and Co-Founder Mentor 300 Black Businesses -------------------------------------------------------- Timings: 7.30 - Introduction 7.40 - Talk[masked] - Talk[masked] - Talk[masked] - Q&A
