Speakers & Talks

Michelle: Dreamer “May the force be with you”

Product and Project Management requires learning from the past, organising the present, and still being able to recklessly dream about the future.

-          The importance of competitor analysis 

-          Opportunities are everywhere   

-          Getting the team speaking the same language, best Project Management tools


Phil: Hacker “You can’t handle the truth!”

 Being a developer in a startup is a very unique opportunity to grow your skills broadly and rapidly but what it’s really taught me is how to keep everyone else happy.

- Managing expectations

- You can’t do everything yourself

- Who has time for governance?

 

Donna: Hustler “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse”

You may think you’ve got the best looking, most innovative product ever. Others will undoubtedly agree with you, but will they pay for it? A customer physically handing over their hard earned cash is the most measurable way to validate your product has life, and it’s an amazing feeling. 

 - Finding product market fit 

- The point at which to let go 

- Dealing with the pleasure/pain cycle
