Change to tonight's program at The Web Meetup

Rick G.
Group Organizer
Melbourne, AU
We've had to make a last minute change to tonight's program. We've replaced "Working with Jerks" by Andrew Blain, with "The secret to successful influencing" with Josh Centner (full details below)

Andrew sends his apologies for the inconvenience, but having personally been a part of Josh's interactive session before I can safely say this will still be an excellent night!

If this makes you more (or less) inclined to come down tonight please update your RSVP on

The secret to successful Influencing
Josh Centner

You know what you want to build, you are doing your customer research and they are clearly telling you what to validate next but there's a problem...a common problem. Your team disagrees with you, the executive don't understand you and the CFO won't give you any funding. You aren't a super hero and you need all these people on board to help make your vision a reality. It's time to start influencing!

In this engaging and practical talk you will learn from experienced product managers the various tools and approaches you can employ to influence different stakeholders across the corporate & startup landscape

Josh is the Product Practice Lead for Elabor8 with background in strategy, consulting, product design and product development. He has strong experience managing and launching products in both the startup and corporate world and is passionate about growing the adoption of Lean Thinking and Startup Culture.

He combines standardised tools and approaches with his unique innovative approach. Leaving each organisation/product development team with an expanded capability for successful product development in an environment that fosters continuous innovation for the enhancement of existing and development of new products, platforms and services.
