Welcome product enthusiasts!

We’re a meet-up group that hosts regular speaking events for those interested in the world of digital products and doing things differently!

Each meet-up features new guests from some of the most influential product companies around the world, providing unique insights, tangible ideas, and new techniques to help drive change from the inside out.

Event Format:

This is a hybrid event, offering the option to come along in person or join us from anywhere in the world online!


🚨 We are at the gorgeous @ The Projects (Lanes) in Brighton, a stone’s throw from the seafront. We’re looking forward to seeing you there! 🚨

Our speakers:

Speaker 1: Rachel McConnell

Design leader, founder and author whose work focuses on building strong, collaborative teams and helping them thrive.

Over her varied career she’s created content for brands such as Deliveroo, Unilever, Virgin Holidays, and Nationwide, and has led content and design teams for OVO, Flo Health, Clearleft and BT.

Her books Why you Need a Content Team and Leading Content Design have helped many teams understand how to build and operationalise their content practice.

She also runs Tempo, a community and conferences for content design leaders, which helps them learn and support each other, and The Product Content Design Studio, which offers consultancy and training.

About the Talk:

Create brilliant work together: fostering collaborative product teams

Are you maximising the potential of your multi-discipline team?

High-performing teams take time to nurture, yet often we just thrust a bunch of people together and hope for the best! In this talk, we’ll learn how to get the most from content design, product design, and research – because healthier teams get better outcomes.

You’ll find out how to:

Foster a culture of trust and empathy

Build teamwork and autonomy within the team

Maximise the potential of content design to lighten the load for design and research

Avoid falling into the content trap


Speaker 2: Janna Bastow

Janna Bastow is the inventor of the Now-Next-Later roadmap and is co-founder and CEO of ProdPad, product management and roadmapping software for product people.

Janna is also co-founder of ProductTank and Mind the Product, the global community of product managers. She often starts and stops conversations with the question: “What problem are you trying to solve?”

About the Talk:

How to Outlive the Competition

In “How to Outlive the Competition,” Janna Bastow highlights how product managers can add value and ensure their company’s longevity.

This talk covers strategies to stay ahead by recognising and overcoming challenges that slow companies down. You’ll learn practical skills on how to identify what’s hindering your company’s growth, how to respond to market changes and competitive pressures, and how to instill a proactive mindset for sustainable growth.
