Product Camp Dublin


Why Attend ProductCamp?

As A Participant As An Employer
Benefit from the peer-learning experience that ProductCamp was designed to deliver. Learn about product management from fellow professionals in parallel sectors – bring home ‘next practice’ ideas.
Work “on” your job as opposed to “in” it – invest in yourself and your productivity. ProductCamp is curated for product people by product people.
Learn about new and emerging techniques – smarter, not harder approaches. Get access to new methods, models and processes.
Make new contacts and renew existing ones. Get a sense of how product management within your organization compares and learn where to take it next.
Build a connection over lunch or coffee with a new; mentor, supplier, prospect…. Get acquainted with your alter (product management) ego – start-ups to high growth organizations to complex enterprises.
Break out of your comfort zone – share some of your hard-earned wisdom. Gain an insider’s view of internationally proven ideas and strategies.
Take the opportunity to unlearn or relearn. Learn fast from people who’ve already made the mistakes you want to avoid – how many books and articles are languishing in a virtual or actual pile?
Spend an afternoon with like-minded, and maybe even some contrarian, individuals. Get your team together to address specific, relevant areas of learning, that you would never otherwise get to, with the normal day to day workloads and competing priorities.
Attend or suggest specific topics of interest to get practical advise and learn from the experience of others who have faced the same problem. Maximise your company’s product management capabilities.

Jobs Board –  Product Camp Connections That Matter

We’re aware that folks have built career moves that started with a Product Camp conversation.  This new initiative is driven by the demand for connecting companies in Ireland with product management candidates who have the right ‘product-market’ fit through their expertise and experience.  All you have to do is to print out your A4 job spec and be at our jobs board area from 12pm on the 15th of June.

So we’re making available a physical jobs’ board to which you can add your product management open positions.  Please bring along an A4-sized printout of your job (we have no printing facilities on the day).  We suggest you use larger font size so potential new hires can take a photo of the position but feel free to be creative within the A4 size!

We have the connections that matter and this job board provides the perfect opportunity to find the product talent you are looking for!  For support on this initiative connect with Madrie Scott.
