Event description

Description

This workshop will help product leaders learn how to make quicker, better product design decisions and how to involve product team members to generate results and productivity. We’ll cover sprint basics, ways to determine when a sprint might be the answer, and the kind of impact you can hope to see as an outcome.

This event is part of the Product & Design Track at Startup Boston Week 2019. And is perfect for companies in the Growth Stage.

Our Presenter:

Benjamin Spear - Design Coach & Advisor

Before opening up his own design consultancy in 2019, Ben Spear was the Director of Design at HubSpot, where he led the strategic design process, including brainstorming, concepting, and collaboration on campaigns with the larger global marketing team.

He also was the Director of Product Design at Lighter, where he led the team in the application of lean UX design to continuously deliver product experiences that attract, retain, and convert customers.

Additionally, in 2012, Ben co-founded Brand Hack, which delivered sprint-based brand development to early-stage high-growth enterprises - including Ground Signal and Mapkin, which was acquired by MapQuest in 2016.
