Event Details

*** DISCLAIMER: This event is ONLINE ***

Everyone talks about the importance of Product Managers and Designers working closely together, but not everyone realizes how similar these roles can be. If you're a Designer wanting to take their next step and looking for ways to influence your company's strategy, then a product role could be for you.
James will be talking about how he fell into Product Management, and how he's learned to use his skills as a Designer to deeply understand customer's needs and bring cross functional teams together to deliver amazing experiences. You'll learn how to identify your weaknesses and expand your skillset, talk the talk and take the steps you need to make that jump into the challenging but rewarding world of Product Management.

Main takeaways:
- Filling the gaps in your toolkit
- Speaking in your peer's terms, not yours
- Being a “yes” man, or woman,
- Making the jump to your next role
- You made it, what's next?

Meet the Speaker: James Taylor

James Taylor is a Senior Product Manager at Xero, originally from Sydney and now based in San Francisco. A former Product Designer, he ended up a Product Manager by accident, but now enjoys taking teams on the journey to solving complex, ambitious problems. He's previously led design at Tyro Payments where he rapidly scaled an award winning banking app, and built an analytics platform for millions of small businesses at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. Before that, he ran his own small business, consulting for businesses around their world on their design and product strategy. In his spare time, you can find him talking tech, reading or losing to 12 year olds at Gran Turismo online.

Product School

Founded in 2014, Product School is the world’s first technology business school.

We provide certified courses in Product Management, Data Analytics, Coding, Digital Marketing and Blockchain to professionals across 15 campuses worldwide. In addition to on-site campuses, we also offer the same courses, live online. Both on-site and online courses are taught by real-world product managers who work at top technology companies such as Google, Facebook, PayPal, Airbnb, LinkedIn and Netflix.

Unlike traditional MBA programs designed for students seeking roles within the finance and consulting fields, Product School’s curriculum is highly relevant for the next generation of technology leaders, with classes offered at a fraction of the cost. The curriculum is designed to fit into work schedules with small classes held in the evenings or on weekends to ensure that both instructors and students can maintain their full-time jobs.

Expect a healthy mix of hands-on projects, group exercises, case studies, panel discussions and a variety of other forums to teach you how to lead cross-functional teams and build digital products from end to end. We also prepare students for product management interviews and enable them to expand their professional network through access to a private community of thousands of people; including alumni, mentors and hiring managers from top technology companies.

Product School also offers custom corporate training programs for Fortune 500 companies seeking to advance the product management skill sets of their existing teams or onboard new talent.

Committed to building the largest product management community, Product School has published the Amazon’s best-selling book The Product Book, runs The Product Awards ceremony and ProductCon, a multi-city product management conference.
