We are a team of product leaders who passionately Care about giving back and building community.

As long-time product leaders with shared interests and values, we became inspired to create a community for product leaders to learn from one another.  We have an amazing speaker line-up and a fantastic agenda comprising of keynotes, fireside chats, workshop breakouts, round-table peer-to-peer discussions and terrific networking opportunities.  We hope you will meet new colleagues that you will continue to be inspired by, learn from and support well beyond the conference event.  As space is limited, the Product Leader Summit will be by invitation only.
