Overview

Elevate your learning on taking Product‑led, outcome‑driven approaches to Product creation

We are delighted to announce that we are hosting our first community conference, virtually, on November 18 & 19 2021!

Bring Your Colleagues: Book 2 tickets and get a 3rd free using code PE-3FOR2


Our event connects passionate Product & UX people worldwide, to share case studies, examples and stories about elevating products to solve our customers’ most wicked problems. We are not about dry theory, but about telling our stories to help us all learn and grow – including how we failed, what we learned, how we elevated our products in the face of complexity and change.

The theme of our conference is Discover Together – how collaborative, product-led approaches to Product Discovery help us achieve business outcomes whilst delighting our users & customers.

Topics across our 3 tracks will include qualitative & quantitative product research techniques, all aspects of product management and UX, and product leadership & innovation. You will hear from the very best international & community speakers on their learnings from taking product-led, outcome-driven approaches. Speakers will include John Cutler, Barry O’Reilly and many more! Stay tuned as we announce many more over the coming months.

Learn how to achieve better outcomes by shifting from a project-led approach to a product-led mindset, and the concrete practices & examples to go with it.

Networking opportunities

This virtual event will not be your typical 1-way webinar. Our platform will allow plenty of networking opportunities including:

  • Breakout sessions with speakers & our other community members
  • Lean Coffee on Product-led ways of working
  • 1:1 networking
  • Joining our Slack channel to continue the discussions and get help
