We had a great turn out of over 75 product managers and technologists at our “Product Management: Growth Hacker or Product Strategist” event. The event was moderated by Anthony Sochan from MitchelLake Group and featured a panel of 3 expert product managers. At the heart of the topic was whether long-term product success and growth hacking can exist in the same product strategy.

There were great insights shared by the panel which included Mark Drasutis (Head of Innovation at News Ltd), Luke Watson (Co-Founder at Startup Validation) and Dino Talic (VP of Product hipages Group).  The general consensus was that a product strategy should utilize a growth hacking mentality of ideation, testing, validation and scaling to fuel growth but should always work to a product roadmap that ensures that growth is sustainable in the long term.

We enjoyed hosting the event at our office and being able to meet so many passionate individuals. Special thanks to MitchellLake Group for all their work in putting this event together.

We look forward to holding more events like this and helping the Sydney tech community share their knowledge.
