Share How Working Abroad Will Help You in Product by former Lenovo PM

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 Silicon Valley in 2014, Product School is the global leader in product management training, with over 10,000 alumni, 20 campuses worldwide and a live online campus.


Product School’s certificates (PMC™,FPMC™,PLC™) are the most important industry-recognized certificates for product managers; and all of our instructors are senior-level product managers working at top technology companies such as Google, Facebook, Airbnb, PayPal, 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.


Students at Product School enjoy a healthy mix of hands-on projects, group activities, case studies, and panel discussions. Through this, they learn how to lead cross-functional teams, and experience building digital products from end to end. Students are also taught how to succeed in product management interviews and given access to our alumni community where they can expand their network, find mentors, and access job opportunities.



In addition to individual classes, Product School also delivers custom corporate training programs to Fortune 500 companies seeking to upskill their existing teams or onboard new talent.


Product School is committed to pushing the product community forward. With this aim in mind, we published the Amazon bestseller, The Product Bookorganize events in over 150 cities worldwide, host Proddys - The Product Awardsand produce ProductCona multi-city global conference attended by thousands of product managers every year.
