About ProductCamp

ProductCamp London is an “unconference” for product management, so the sessions for the day will be driven by the attendees. Everyone is expected to contribute to the day, so think about what you would like to do in a session (workshop, presentation, Q&A, or just an open discussion are some possibilities).

Tips for preparing a session:

We’re here all day, and everyone’s friendly. Be sure to come prepared to spark a discussion… After all, everyone’s an expert in something, so spread the knowledge!

Remember, bringing a formal presentation is not a requirement. Come armed with lessons, stories or tips, and simply be prepared to participate in some great discussions.

We look forward to seeing you there!
