ProductTank provides an opportunity for product managers across Yorkshire 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. We currently hold regular meetups in Sheffield and Leeds.
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.
Please join us and fellow product tankers for an evening of knowledge sharing and chatting about all things product. This is our first event for 2020, and we have confirmed three great talks, from four industry experts, to share practical tips and learnings from their experiences.
The event will be held at 6 Wellington Place, Leeds, LS14AP (Sky Bet - 2nd Floor). The office is a 6-8min walk from Leeds Station, just let reception know you’re here for Product Tank and they’ll send you up to sign in at the Sky Bet desk.
We will be kicking off at 18:30 with some drinks, food and time to chat then settle in for three talks starting at 19:00.
Keep your eyes peeled for updates on their bios and talk details coming soon:
*19:00-19:25 Jarryd Addinall - Product Principle @ AND Digital, also an experienced product manager, dad, husband, singer-songwriter and aspiring health coach who's talking to us about:
'Kidding Around - What I learnt from product failure'
*19:30-19:55 Anna Broadhurst, Principal Consultant @ Infinity Works and Polly Price, Agile Product Owner @Hitatchi talking about:
'Lean Development: A case study into the design and development of one of Hitachi’s core services.'
This talk dives into rethinking the way that large services are replaced by building from ground up iterations. Adopting a lean mind set to accelerate delivery using cloud technologies and building in the ability to flex on scope and design based on feedback. This is a real user-centred, lean approach to building large complex solutions which can then be taken out into market.
