Event Details

Ever wonder about the products that drive major media companies like Condé Nast (The New Yorker, Vogue, Pitchfork, WIRED), iHeartMedia (iHeartRadio), and WebMD? Join us for a session with Ryan Harper, a Senior Product Manager at Condé Nast Entertainment, who has also worked as a product manager at iHeartRadio and WebMD.

He knows what it takes to build twenty-first century media products and how to get your foot in the door. Ryan will discuss the elements that make up a product manager’s ideal skill set. You’ll also get the inside scoop on the day-to-day work of a PM, the challenges of the job, and personal insights from Ryan’s experience.

Key Takeaways:

  • Promote agile thinking both organizationally and in product development. The media space is changing quickly, and adaptability is paramount.
  • Empathy and storytelling should be at the core of your team’s product decision-making, especially when your user is also your audience.
  • Think compositionally — any feature you build needs to fit within the larger narrative of the product. 
  • Never stop learning. The more informed you are, the better product manager you’ll be.
