I’m stoked for ProductCamp tomorrow. The doors will open at 8am at Paycor (see here for the details I sent yesterday). Below is the 2nd half of the speakers and some great Friday reading as you buy your time until the weekend. Our speakers are diverse, experienced, adventurous, and innovative.
From the mind of Jade Kendall — Founder of Ideation Architecture
If we don’t tell our story the way we want it to be heard, it may be heard the way we didn’t tell it.
Our brains have an innate ability to fill in the gaps of incomplete or ambiguous stories. This tendency is especially useful to create mystery, evoke curiosity, and capture emotions, but without purpose these gaps can unintentionally blur our personal and brand stories.
We are just a few days away from Product Camp at Paycor on Saturday the 15th. I’m excited to hear from our expert speakers who range from Directors of Product Management at Fortune 500 companies, to company founders, to industry leading consultants. We have a wide range of speakers to choose from, and in true “unconference” format, you will be the ones choosing who actually talks at Product Camp.
