February 8th 2019 - Manchester, UK
In a first for Manchester, we’re bringing a dedicated product conference to the city. MTP Engage Manchester is for passionate product managers of all levels of experience; from people interested in getting into product, to veterans of the discipline, the conference offers insight for all.
After the fantastic growth and engagement in the product community led by ProductTank Manchester and ProductCamp Manchester, a conference was the obvious next step!
August 1st-2nd - Edinburgh, UK
The Product track at Turing Fest brings together world-class experts in product management, design and growth, to share knowledge and expertise about how to build product right.
Description of the talk:
User research is essential to building products that solve real user problems. It is often a precursor to good design and excellent product development. User research comes typically with some clichés - “it’s so expensive,” “we need a dedicated research team,” or “the people that I work for don’t buy into it.” If you’ve experienced any of these negative stereotypes, or if research is already a part of your process and you want to arm yourself with a toolkit to execute it even better and clearly communicate its value, this talk is for you! Gabrielle will introduce a toolkit to help you inject research into everything you do and share her tips on how to turn constraints into opportunities. She will share stories and learnings from the field and send you off with actionable steps so you can begin developing solutions for the problems that your users actually care about.

Lean Startup Summit brings the big ideas from Eric Ries’s books off the page to show how organisations are making them real around the world.
Alongside keynotes and case studies, we offer workshops and mentoring sessions at Lean Startup Summit where you can have more immersive experiences, breaking off a chunk of the practice and working through it with our seasoned experts. The learnings you come away with happen on all levels, from the inspirational to the personal.
January 2018 - London, UK
Love them or hate them, there's no denying the rise of the Startup over the past ten years. Increasing numbers of larger UK businesses report that Startups are eating into their profit margins and innovating at a pace that they just can't seem to match.
Gabrielle Bufrem from Pivotal Labs has seen it all. Join her to hear proven ways in which enterprises can pivot to practising lean development methodologies - how to identify the right problems to solve, building MVPs, and develop small iterative cycles to deliver exceptional results!

September 22-24th 2017 - Providence, United States
BOOTSTRAPPING USER RESEARCH
User research is imperative to engineering solutions that solve the user's most important problems. It is often a precursor to good design and great product development.
User research normally comes with some clichés - “it’s so expensive”, “we need a dedicated research team”, or “the people that I work for don’t buy into it”. If you’ve heard any of these negative stereotypes, or if you’re looking for best practices to bootstrap user research despite constraints, this talk is for you! Gabrielle will introduce a toolkit to help you inject research into everything you do, and share her tips on how to turn constraints into opportunities. She will share stories and learnings from the field and send you off with actionable steps so you can begin developing solutions for the problems that your users actually care about.
