Event Details

In this talk, Michael will share his experience living and working in Tokyo, Japan for both Intel and Lenovo. He will share what it was like to be the Product go-to-person for high tech companies. He will also share his strategy for getting what he needed from headquarters. His relationships with the sales teams, and from a personal perspective, his experience during the 2011 Earthquake and why he decided to stay in Tokyo. If anyone in the Product School community is thinking about going abroad to do a Product Manager role but is not quite sure, then they surely will not want to miss this. Or, if are looking for insights about how to build products that appeal to Asian markets, especially Japan, then this is a session for you.

Main Takeaways:
- Living and working overseas is a great way to accelerate your professional career
- Having cross-cultural skills can help you be a great Product Manager because it will make you empathetic
- If you want to launch a product in Japan, there are a just few things you need to remember
- If you do want to get out of town and do something wonderful overseas as a Product Manager, I highly recommend Japan

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.
