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

Featured Product: Moven
exploring the product, its challenges and successes, from financial wellness to distribution strategy
(thanks to Mohamed Khalil)

Product Management Positioning (and the Future!)
from testing to working together

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, January 2nd @ 7PM
RSVP Now!

Stay tuned for more announcements about January’s Featured Product, INCLUSION.
