What exactly is Product Management and is it really the right path for me? Come join us on July 9 for an inquisitive night of speaker sessions, panel Q&A and more importantly insights from the industrys best in the game talk about their perspective on "What is Product Management?" Our rockstars for the night 1- Nick Coster - Co founder, Head trainer - Brainmates Nick is the guy to tell us what is Product Management, running dozens of public courses and workplace training across Australia and beyond, every year. Known and loved by hundreds of Product people for his ability to quickly and simply explain complex problems and concepts with or without a Lord of the Rings or Dungeons and Dragons analogy. Nick has trainined and worked with people from diverse companies and industries, including Xero, MYOB, Fairfax, News Limited, NAB and Suncorp. 2- Paul Redfern - Product Lead, Tyro Payments Paul has over a decade of experience across product, strategy, operational and marketing roles and he is currently giving it a red-hot crack as a Product Lead at Tyro. Armed with endless amounts of energy and enthusiasm he loves working on problems of all shapes and sizes – how can we provide the best borrowing option for small to medium businesses; what’s the most effective way to articulate the product vision to the board in just 15 minutes; how can we continue building a diverse and kick-ass team culture? But product management is hard – tougher and uglier on the inside than it looks on the outside. So how do you know when you’re doing it right? How do you know if you’re ready for it? How do you know if you’re good enough? Come along to hear Paul talk about his experiences in showing up and stepping into the unknown. 3- Kate Pearce - Product Manager at Expert360 Kate started her career as a UX Developer at Constant Contact in the US. After moving to Sydney and working as a Front End Engineer at Expert360 she made the switch to Product Management just over two years ago. Kate is obsessed with customer feedback and getting her teams as close to the customer and their problems as possible. Kate's talk summary in her own words: want to talk about transitioning careers from Engineering to Product Management and how different the role has ended up being from what I originally expected. I’d like to share some lessons I’ve learned along the way, especially how bringing value to an organization doesn’t always come in the form of features delivered. Panel - 1- Francesca Jackson - Product Recruiter, Sustain digital Francesca relocated to Sydney from the UK 2 years ago and joined SustainDigital to set up the Product Management practice. Having 3 years prior recruitment experience in the UK across digital marketing. This is an exciting area that is truly growing and evolving. Product Managers play a fundamental role in the success of every business and it’s something I am very passionate about. Over the last two years I have always tried to spend time with client and to work in partnership with companies to ensure we place the right product manager because as we know product is different in every organisation we work with and so are the success metrics. SustainDigital is a recruitment company with a conscience. We believe in giving back to the community we work in! This is something I truly believe in to ensure we nurture the future talent of tomorrow as they are the rising stars of the future!
