Over the course of the night a few of the highlights were…

The Best Product Person of 2013: Andres Glusman
launched in 2010, this annual award recognizes excellence in Product Management

Featured Product: Weight Watchers
exploring the product, its challenges and successes, from lifestyle to institutionalizing analytics
(thanks to Jared Raskin and Team)

Customer Acquisition Strategy
from incentives to community

The Product Group meet-ups are an opportunity for Product People (managers, strategists, marketers, etc.) to come together to meet, interact, and network in a roundtable setting. It’s awesome to meet fellow Product People in a laid-back, conversational gathering.

If you are a Product Person and are interested in having your product featured or participating as a featured guest expert at an upcoming meetup of The Product Group, contact me (or email at jhorn (a-t.) tpgblog DoT com).

I am looking forward to seeing everyone at our next meetup …

Thursday, February 7th @ 7PM
RSVP Now!

And, stay tuned for more announcements about February’s Featured Product, Advisoray.
