Our 9th Leadership Forum takes place on March 26, 2020 in London and we are delighted to be launching the event in New York, 14 Feb and Austin, 12 Jun 2020.
For product management leaders in technology-based industries.
Through a series of presentations, workshops, and discussions, this forum will

Why attend the Leadership Forum?
Is it for you?
If you’re like many product management leaders, you’re very busy, and there are little time and support for working on building a high-performance product management function. The Forum provides an oasis away from the usual daily distractions – dedicated time and space to focus.
You will need to have some senior management or team leading experience to benefit from the Forum.
What are the benefits?
- Learn what a world class product function looks like
- Explore the big issues that companies face and get insider perspectives from peers and industry experts
- Discuss how to sell the value of product management to senior management
- Access unique tools and techniques to take away and apply
- Create a plan to lead and improve product management in your business

What will we cover?
Our focus is on the big issues you have as a product management leader in your organization. We also bring our experience of working closely with a wide range of companies when delivering training and running product management reviews as well as our 2019 industry survey. For example in the past topics have included …
- Making sure Agile doesn’t break product management
- Moving from fire-fighting to strategic leadership
- Prioritization – when everything is #1
- Explaining product management to senior management
- Fuzzy product roles and responsibilities within a company
- Inside Out to Outside In – decision making based on customer data and insight
Why a forum for product management leadership?
Product management conferences are a good source of new information. However, you can spend a lot of time passively listening to people present. Or you can find yourself with a mix of people from all levels whose jobs are completely different from yours.
This Forum is for product management leaders. It has a high degree of participation and discussion with peers who are facing similar challenges across different technology industries. It gives the dedicated focus and expert support needed to effectively address the issues.
When is it?
The forum is a full-day event on Thursday 14 Feb 2020 in New York, Thursday 26 March 2020 in London or Thursday 12 June 2020 in Austin, starting with breakfast at 8:30 am and finishing at 5:00 pm.
We have a post-forum drinks get together after the event at 5:00 pm. Everyone is invited. This is an ideal time to talk with other leaders, reflect on the day, exchange contact details and enjoy yourself.
The event will be hosted by the Directors of Product Focus at venues designed to keep you engaged and energized.
