Last week we gathered 1,200 product managers from all over the world (13 countries and 38 states) to the stunning Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall in the heart of San Francisco for another awesome Mind the Product conference. As always it was amazing to see so many passionate peers in one room, coming together to share experiences and inspire each other to build products people love.
From Ken Norton’s opening to Des Traynor’s closing, we were treated to a day of mind blowing talks and learned to embrace being uncomfortable, how to build heist teams, make sense of our messes, embrace design and UX, and to build products that survive. As ever, thanks to our amazing speakers for inspiring us to do better!
But most of all thank you to our incredible audience who took those talks and debated them, shared them, and discussed them over the breaks, lunch, at the afterparty, on twitter and in slack. And what a discussion! – our hashtag #mtpcon trended throughout the day and hit over 17m impressions.
See you in London in September, or back in San Francisco in spring 2017!

#mtpcon was fantastically well done. It's almost as if a bunch of product managers were running the show.
