Description

After a long summer break DigitalXChange Product Talk is back!

This time Allan Donald is joining us from London to talk about From the Olympics to Brexit: How Product Management transformed the BBC (and what we learned along the way) while our local player Johnny Quach will talk about Growth Culture at AirHelp: Breaking down doors, Climbing down Chimneys, and starting fires to find Growth.

Speakers

Johnny is the CPO at AirHelp and has been responsible for making AirHelp a highest velocity company in the travel-tech industry. Over his career, he has headed product teams in three different continents. He was Head of Product for Berlin-based company Zenrooms.com, Senior Product Manager at Match.com in Los Angeles, and VP of Product for Unison in Shanghai.

Allan is the Head of Product at BBC. He is leading the product and engineering teams building curation, authoring and metadata tools for creators. Previously he worked for Bloomberg, STV and Sunday Herald.

Why attend?

We believe that product is a fascinating field where some do it better than others. The way people do product differs from city to city. A great way to be up to date and learn best practices is meeting leaders from different industries and different cities. Product Talk is looking to do just that: bring talent from other parts of the world to your city, while finding the best local players.

Not all who wander are lost: there will also be a job board with (product) career opportunities at companies around Europe. (If you're looking to hire, we could promote the job opening).

As always we will have plenty of drinks, pizza and takeaways and the first 30 people to arrive will have the chance to win a JBL Bluetooth Speaker!
