Sessions & Topics
Rather than having pre-scheduled speakers, everyone who is interested in leading a session provides a brief (that’s about a minute) pitch in the morning before we start. Attendees then vote and those sessions receiving the highest votes are put on the schedule and groups form for intense learning. Click here to propose a session topic. Soon we will be posting topics that will be held during ProductCamp Atlanta.
Similar to other ProductCamps, we are looking for a variety of sessions – roundtables, workshops and panel discussions are welcome! So share a best practice, talk about how a particular methodology works in the real world, or present and discuss a hot topic on the minds of product managers and marketers. Attendees can then view what your session is about prior to the event and your chances increase for being selected!
Participate in ProductCamp Atlanta!
