WELCOME TO A NEW EXPERIENCE

An immersive digital conference

For those who’ve been to Leading the Product before (and those that haven’t), you’re going to LOVE Leading the Product (Digital). Watch Kent explain how we’ve created a digital conference with a stellar in-person experience.

About us

What is Leading the Product (Digital)?

Leading the Product is Australia’s favourite Product Management conference. It has been running since 2015 and has grown and SOLD OUT every single year – more than 1,200 people attended in 2019. In 2020, we have reimagined it as an immersive digital experience featuring Product Leaders from around the world.

This year you will join hundreds of passionate product people for an interactive day of joint learning and co-creation on the “7 Ps of Product”.

You’ll learn from and interact with well-known leaders like Steven Haines, Caitlin Blackwell, April Dunford, Kate Leto, Klaas Raaijmakers and Christine Sou as well as product peeps from around Australia and the Asia-Pacific.

Our Audience

All of these people will be at Leading the Product.

7 Ps A 2020 SPIN

What are the
7 Ps of Product?

It’s our new way of envisioning Product Management. The 7 Ps (Problem, Purpose, Position, Performance, Price, Promotion, Practice) allow Product Managers to rise above the day-to-day slog and truly think through what makes a successful Product and how to make it happen. It builds on the best aspects of the 7 Ps of marketing, orients them on Product Management, and makes them fit today’s world.

Our Benefits

Why should
you buy
a ticket?

Great question, we’re glad you asked. With face-to-face
conferences cancelled around the globe, there has been an
explosion in quickly-pulled-together e-events. This is not one
of those.

We have purpose-built Leading the Product (Digital)
specifically for the digital world. This means we’ve taken the
best bits of Leading the Product (in-person) and re-imagined
the entire experience so it will wow you from wherever you are.

You will:
  • Be fully immersed in a shared experience with like-minded lovers of Product Management. You will be led through an interactive day where each speaker and each experience builds on the last to form a complete picture of best-practice Product Management – the 7 Ps of Product.
  • Have an amazing time. Seriously, this is super important to us. Leading the Product is friendly, down-to-earth, knowledgeable, useful and fun!
  • Co-create an e-Book with the LTP team, our speakers and Product community leaders. You’ll have a complete take-home toolkit that you can use to educate your team and present it to senior leadership. It will include a transcription of the speaker talks and videos
  • Join a community of people that love Product. You’ll join small group workshops and discussion groups where you can laugh, learn and network with top Product leaders and others that know what it’s like because they’ve been in the trenches too.
You will NOT:
  • Be confronted by poor pictures and sound quality and that ‘brought-to-you-from-the-bedroom’ aesthetic – we’re talking top-end production values and event management.
  • Be sold to. LTP is not a sales event. We obsessively research, choose and coach the best speakers so they’ll blow your socks off on the day.
  • Be lectured at by so-so speakers with tired ideas. We’ve exhaustively researched, and found, a mix of local and global leaders with fresh ideas that are ready to rock your world.
  • Be bored and struggle to sit through a full day. We’ve carefully curated and composed the day to keep you engaged and interested throughout.
