Here at Futureheads, we enjoy any excuse to exercise the old grey matter by attending various industry events in London and beyond.
I wanted to share with you some of the events I have found most valuable for networking, learning and keeping up to date with what’s going on in the wonderful world of product management. I’ll definitely be attending quite a few of these, so do let me know if you’ll be there too!
This list is always growing – if we’ve missed an event you think deserves a shout-out, please let us know and we’ll get it added to this post.
The Product Group London
Every month, Central London
This monthly event has been a core event in the London product scene for several years, and it’s always a great show, with lively discussion and interesting speakers.
It gives the opportunity for the likes of Product Managers and Strategists to come together, interact and network. The ideal environment for sharing and learning with your peers.
Second or third week of the month, usually on a Wednesday. Various locations.
ProductTank meetups allow Product Managers in London to exchange ideas and experiences about product design, development and management, business modelling, metrics, user experience – and all the other things that get us excited.
Events include talks from guest speakers on topics around product management, networking opportunities, and a good old-fashioned chin-wag over a beer or two.
For those that live in the Brighton area, or for product types who fancy a trip to the seaside, Product Tank’s Brighton meetup is always an evening well spent.
Women in Product
This meetup is a place for women to openly talk and discuss all topics related to product management, product design and product development. Originally from the land of Oz, their newish London chapter has already hosted some great sessions.
These events are jam-packed with exciting businesses presenting new, smarter and more connected products – and changes within the IoT.
