We work with you to ensure that the speaking experience is the best that it can be and to achieve your personal and business goals.
- Visibility and Authority
- Get your name out there as an expert in your field. It's a great way of growing your career.
- Having to prepare a talk forces you to really delve into the details on a topic. You'll be surprised by what you teach yourself.
- Build Confidence
- It may seem daunting at first but you will be on a high after coming off stage and the confidence will last even longer.
- Supercharge your Networking
- Don't worry about not knowing how to reach out to people - they will reach out to you.
- Brand Awareness
- Your brand will be highlighted on the agenda for months as people research the conference.
- Brand Authority
- Your company is one of the few selected to be on stage. You get the transferred authority of all of the other large brands like Google, Uber, Spotify, Mastercard and more.
- If you're looking to hire this is a great opportunity to highlight how work is really done at your company.
- Press Coverage
- If you have a big announcement we can facilitate press coverage at the conference.
- Everything that we do is around finding better ways to make change happen in organisations. Cross-functional conferences with real industry case studies is one part of making that change happen.
- It's not just about the big conferences - they help us to run free community events around the world to help more people and teams, as well as help people begin their speaking journey.
- Sometimes you see the same people speaking at every conference. They are often great - but we prefer the people doing the work. That's why we'd love to hear about you and your experiences.
- We work hard to ensure that our agenda has people speaking of all types of identities, abilities, races, religions and otherwise. But they have one thing in common - they're all phenomenal in their work.
- We care about your speaking experience - from upfront speaking guides, to feedback on drafts to helping you make connections in the industry. We work with you to deliver on your goals.
- We are a small team - you'll get to know us all as you begin your journey with us. And we pride ourselves on the fact that we call a number of our past speakers friends.
It takes a full product team to build a successful product so we target Product, UX, Design and Development roles.
We have a large contingent of senior decision-makers as well as the people doing the work, who have a strong say in the products and services they use.
As companies scale they begin to slow down because they start creating silos and adopting waterfall ways of working. We demonstrate how companies can scale without losing the competitive product team structures.
What we're looking for
Theory is great - but we want tangible actions that people can take away. That is why we have a strong preference for case studies that show the details and gritty challenges that you faced adopting a new approach and the benefits that it is now delivering.
We break out the content for the conferences into the following areas:
- Product Vision
- Uncover the customer's underlying needs, then find the intersection between those needs and the current business objectives. It is key for everyone on the team to be involved to ensure alignment and avoid unnecessary rework.
- Continuous Discovery
- Customer needs shift rapidly and therefore continuous quantitative and qualitative research needs to be conducted by the team. The biggest waste in product development is building the wrong thing, but this research will give insights that will enable more effective product decisions.
- Continuous Design
- Design is more than just pixels, it's about taking the customer problems identified in the research findings and solving these issues. Teams need to ideate together to generate the best solutions, and quickly prototype and validate them before committing to expensive builds.
- Continuous Delivery
- Good architecture is critical for a sustainable product, but that doesn't mean Big Design Up Front. By providing guidelines and boundaries, teams can be empowered to react to changing requirements while ensuring high quality and secure technical designs.
- You aren't done when you release the code - you're only done when the code has made the expected impact. Teams need to track the metrics identified when ideating in order to validate the effectiveness of each release.
- Enabling the Team
- During the change from projects to product teams, it is necessary to ensure that the people in your teams are being supported and enabled. This includes ensuring there are clear objectives, as well as the psychological safety of trying new things.
