Description

Hacking Your Product Career

A four-hour workshop by Gibson Biddle, former VP Product, Netflix

In this workshop, Gib describes his hypothesis-driven approach to career advancement. This workshop focuses on:

  • the technical skills of a product leader
  • the functional leadership skills required to advance your career
  • how to isolate the skills you’ll need to develop at different career stages
  • how to define, experiment, and measure “career hypotheses”
  • how to identify the “superpowers” of your product career
  • how to build your “personal board of directors,” and
  • how to effectively position and “brand” yourself as a product leader

Gib’s workshops are highly interactive with a mix of presentation, mini-cases, small-group work, and introspection, all of which work together to jumpstart your career. This workshop is capped at 40 participants and is designed for product people (PM, design, tech, data/consumer science) at all stages. Early in the session, you’ll be seated with same-stage peers, but late in session will “pair” in potential mentor relationships. (For the mentors, there’s tons of value in learning to teach and coach others-- a necessary skill to advance your career.)

For Managers, see your team members develop into highly capable leaders who have shared language around what great product leaders look like and how the team can get there.

Testimonials

Gib’s half-day Hacking Your Product Leader Career workshop was added to the INDUSTRY lineup just two months before our conference, and still sold out... requiring a 2nd session to be added. More importantly, the attendees of Gib’s workshop gave it rave reviews, making it one the top-rated workshops ever to be offered at INDUSTRY. If you book this specific workshop from Gib, I have no doubt that your participants will be better armed with the skills, techniques, and confidence needed to level up their careers in product leadership roles.” - Mike Belsito, Co-Founder of INDUSTRY: The Product Conference

Gib’s obsession with data makes his sessions extremely relevant for product leaders. No wonder ‘Hacking Your Product Leader Career’ was our top-rated workshop at JAM London this year. Gib mixed educational content with engaging group exercises to help participants apply some of the key concepts he presented. A treat for everyone in the room! For me, as a curator, Gib was a pleasure to work with, always ready to bounce ideas and share insightful feedback on how to create ‘lightbulb moments’ for the product community.” - Mathilde Leo, Co-founder, JAM London
