Morning Talks

10:30am
Mollie Vandor, Facebook

My focus is building news products, which requires collaborative development with publishers and balancing the needs of multiple constituents in a multi-sided marketplace. It’s something I’m very passionate about and I’d love to share what I’ve learned over the course of my experience doing this at both Twitter and Facebook.

11:00am
Jeremy Bailey, FreshBooks


I Lived Every Product Designers Dream; Here’s the Story: Haven’t you ever wanted to scrap your entire product and start from scratch? Jeremy got the opportunity to do just that. Hear from him about this experience, what he got right, wrong, and what he should have and how to create a product that talks up to customers, rather than talking down.

11:30am
Sepand Norouzi, Spotify

In post product-market fit tech companies, running experiments is increasingly at the core of a product manager’s job. In this era of experimentation, there’s a trend towards allowing data to drive decision making. I argue that while PMs need to take data into consideration, they must not forget to consider the context of the user in order to paint a complete picture. This talk will make an argument for being data informed as opposed to data driven and speak to the downsides of overly data driven experimentation on your growth numbers and, ultimately, your bottom line.

Afternoon Talks

1:00pm
Tammy Lew, Warby Parker

Building unconventional products at an unconventional company: If you've heard of Warby Parker, then you probably know we sell designer eyewear at revolutionary prices. But did you know that Warby Parker also builds patented technology to make vision care accessible to all? Last year, Warby Parker launched the new telehealth app, Prescription Check, to allow people to update their eyeglass prescriptions from the comfort of their own home. From hundreds of hours of user research to meticulously tracking metrics, and plenty of iterations later, learn how an unconventional retail company has built really awesome (tech) products.


1:30am
Greg Weissberg, SoulCycle


Shaping Physical Experiences & Behaviors: Merging online & offline products, enables us to build powerful customer habits. This presentation will discuss how technology, data & psychology can influence behaviors towards physical experiences.


2:00pm
Carol Skordas Walport, Zocdoc

Accelerating Product Delivery through a Shared Context: As teams and organizations scale, the importance of having a shared context increases. In this talk we will discuss why developing a shared context is important and how investing in it upfront can actually speed up the development process, reducing the headaches and wasted time that are created through information asymmetry. The talk will end with examples of efficient ways to share context that you can implement quickly in your teams.

2:30pm

Break

Final Talks

3:00pm
Jisha Jacob, Dropbox

Facilitating Executive Involvement/Discussion: Grounded in my almost year-long close working relationship with AppNexus' executive team, I can talk through the communication skills I learned at AppNexus and how they've evolved with learnings in Dropbox, specifically leveraging some learnings/frameworks from The Pyramid Principle and ways to get ahead of/mitigate high-stakes conversations.
