Upcoming Speaking Engagements and Presentations
Hereâ€™s just a few of the places you can meet me in person in the next few months (more to come!)
- Saturday, February 25: Iâ€™ll be at ProductCamp right here in my very own St. Louis.Â There are over 50 proposed sessions, including two of mine: Agile Marketing: How to Apply Agile Concepts to MarketingÂ andÂ Best Practices for Product Roadmaps.
- March 7-8: I’ll be at Pendomonium: A Product ExperienceÂ in Raleigh, NC, which will feature two days of sessionsÂ on product management, UX and customer success. On Tuesday I’ll be delivering a keynote presentation on SaaS and the Consumerization of Enterprise Software, and then on Wednesday I’ll be leading a breakout session on Product Management: What’s Changing and What Needs to Change?

- May 16-19: Iâ€™ll be Las Vegas for the SiriusDecisions SummitÂ (one of â€œ7 events no product manager should miss this yearâ€œ). The Product Marketing and Management track will have a number of great sessions, and you can see my picks for sessions that product management leaders should attend.
Podcast Interview: Design Your Thinking
I was interviewed by Karthik Vijayakumar (@kartvee) for a recent episode of hisÂ Design Your Thinking podcast. You can download or stream the episode (~38 minutes long) whereÂ we cover everything from the importance to empathy to mistakes product managers make in understanding customers to how to develop a “product mindset.”
Reminder: Survey about use of Product Management Tools
What tools and technologies do you use for product management? How well do they work? This is a reminder that at SiriusDecisions we are conducting a survey of b-to-b product managers and what applications they do (and donâ€™t) use. The survey takes only about 5 minutes to complete, and everyone who takes this survey on product management tools will receive a complimentary copy of the forthcoming SiriusView report on Product Planning, Prioritization and Roadmapping tools. The survey will remain open until March 8, so take the 2017 SiriusDecisions Product Management Tools Survey now!
