ProductTank: Austin provides an opportunity for Product Managers in Austin 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.
Grab your lunch, sit at your desk, and watch our quick 1-hour meet-up!
Our Special Guest, author of Articulating Design, Tom Greever (https://www.linkedin.com/in/tomgreever/), will join us for our lunch-hour.
In this talk Tom covers:
Whether you realize it or not, the way you talk about the design of your product can be just as important as the problems it solves. The ability to effectively articulate design decisions is critical to the success of every product. But from simple psychology to outright deception, not all tactics are created equal.
We need to find ways to be persuasive with stakeholders without being disingenuous. Actually, the same approaches we champion with users of our products are also helpful in our meetings about design. Join us for this inspiring talk as Tom shares stories from throughout his career that demonstrate practical principles to help you communicate your product decisions to stakeholders in a way that’s effective.

I’m an experienced product and design leader with a successful track record leading product and UX design teams from strategy to delivery. Whether I’m designing products myself, leading a product design team, or championing organizational design practices – I help organizations design great products and customer experiences based on data with measurable outcomes.
I'm mostly known for the book Articulating Design Decisions, as well as speaking at conferences and leading workshops on the subject. I've been fortunate enough to do product and design consulting with teams at Google, Apple, Walmart, Porsche, Levis, Wells Fargo, BBC, Lowe's, and more.
I am also a dedicated family man and toddler wrestler, with 5 curious kids and a marriage worth bragging about. I'm outdoorsy, handy, sarcastic, sports car-y, and funnier in real life.
