Our Time is on Your Side

How time flies when you’re busy! Those critical product management tasks you’ve ProductCamp_Atlantic_2015been meaning to tackle just keep slipping lower and lower on the to-do list. So are they not that critical after all? Or are you putting your roadmap in jeopardy?

We’ve all been there. When we sat down with Allan Neil (@allanneil) of Ready Product Radio for this interview, we were busy working with our partners to put on the second annual Atlantic ProductCamp. We were also moving our home office and our business halfway across the country. So we understand that sometimes you need to reach out for help. If you’re looking for a partner to help with customer understanding, mentoring, facilitation, planning, or marketing strategy, we can give you a hand with that. And if you’re a seasoned Product Manager looking to strike out on your own and go freelance, we’ll tell you that it’s not for the faint of heart. But if you’re not afraid of hard work with a side of rejection, it can be the best career move you’ll ever make.

We hope you’ll check out our interview with Allan. And while you’re at Ready Product Radio, check out some of the other Product Management professionals that have been interviewed as well. There’s a goldmine of advice, help, and encouragement inside.

Continued success,

Megann and Steve

It’s Not Too Late – Join us at ProductCamp Atlantic!

productcampatlantic logo medium     Wow, we’re really excited at the response we’re getting to our ProductCamp initiative. Along with our co-organizers, we’ve been hearing great things, and registrations continue to grow. This Saturday, product management enthusiasts from our region will gather to share ideas, solve problems, and get energized and inspired. If this is like any of the other ProductCamps we’ve attended, healthy debates might even ensue. Interested in getting involved with ProductCamp? There are lots of ways you or your connections can participate:

Sponsor – we’re looking for sponsors large and small who will assist with things like coffee and lunch. Innovacorp and Nautel were our first sponsors to sign on, and you can see others at the website. It is strictly a not-for-profit event, so sponsorship dollars go to cover travel costs for speakers, food, or other conference costs.

Send or Attend – we’d love to see you there, or alternatively product managers, developers, or other contacts that you think could benefit. Anyone who is interested in product management and product development (including suppliers) is welcome.

Share your Time – volunteers are welcome and appreciated – helping manage check-in, setting up and tearing down on the day, checking on guest speakers to be sure they have everything they need. Many hands make light work, as they say!

Speak or Suggest – if you have topics you’d like to see covered, let us know. If you have a topic you might consider presenting, even better – just let us know. The community will vote and their selections will become part of the program.

Spread the word – if you would be so kind as to communicate to your networks, it would be fantastic. www.productcampatlantic.ca @PCampAtlantic or on LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=8177776

We hope to see you there!
