What we're about


Since 2004, Brainmates has been championing the importance of effective Product Management in organisations big and small.

The purpose of this group is to help bring together the growing community of Product Management Professionals and those who want to learn more about this vital function. The Product Management domain touches many areas of an organisation and is misunderstood or poorly defined in many of them.

Great Product Management means great products that customers love and great outcomes for the businesses providing them.

Product Talks Sydney will provide the community with an opportunity to learn from the Brainmates team and other Product Management professionals.

Who Should Join?

Product Management is not a single role. It covers everything from marketing, strategy, finance, development, sales and customer experience.

If you are interested in managing an existing product or developing a new one then this is a great opportunity to meet other professionals and learn from them.

"Product Talks" is also a networking function. We’re keen for Product Managers across different industries to meet up and exchange business cards. You never know where your next job offer will come from.

Please come with strong opinions and a desire to voice them!

Hey, if you are interested in Product Talks, but don't live in Sydney then no problem. Here are some other Meetups specifically for great product people:

This is a place-holder for our next Meetup, happening the third Tuesday of the month, every month! Please register your interest and watch this space for an update soon. Keep your Product Fit, and on behalf of the Brainmates team, I look forward to meeting you soon!

Leading the Product Pitch-Fest

Campaign Monitor

Leading the Product (LTP) are planning another round of Lightning Talks this year. Would you like to be one of those speakers & have the chance to present to 500 product professionals??? We're hosting LTP Pitchfest again this year to give you the chance to do exactly that! Last year's Pitchfest winner - Ivy Hornibrook smashed it out of the park with her talk on "The Unintended Consequences of Being a Good Product Manager". We're hoping to find two great speakers to take the stage in 2019. First, we'll hear from past Lightning Talkers. Get their tips and hear about their experience in planning, practising and getting up there! Then, it's your turn! Those of you interested will get 90 seconds to pitch what you'd like to talk about. No slides... just you sharing with the crowd & judges. At the end of the evening, 2 people will be selected to present a Lightning Talk at Leading the Product 2019. Selection is based on the judges' vote and votes from the audience. If you know someone that should get up and present then make sure you send them the link to this event. Come along and cheer them on. If you're interested in being part of the Lightning Talks at LTP 2019 in October, then sign up on our Google Form. Even if you're not pitchin', join us as an audience member - support your fellow product peeps & be part of deciding who takes the stage at LTP. Thanks to our Co-Hosts Product Talks and Campaign Monitor. https://forms.gle/CPcwVvGvKfMwxvYW9
