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.
