I gave a talk recently about how I’ve been using data and analytics to guide my decisions in product management. I’ve edited the transcript a little and split it into bite-size parts for your entertainment. This bit is about expensive and risky assumptions (and why you should check them).
I’m currently working to improve my public speaking, and I recently gave a talk on Digital Justice at Product Management Festival in Zurich. Afterwards, I asked a few people for some honest feedback, and jotted down how I felt I’d done. So this post is really a mini-retrospective with me reflecting on what went well and what I could do better next time.
I thought you might find it of passing interest also. With any luck, I’ll present better next time.

- Derek Morrison (@allaboutproduct), Group Product Manager at Tesco
- Sally Foote (@sallyfoote), Digital Product Consultant, Founder of FEB Digital
- Craig Strong (@craigstrong), Director Global Product Development Lifecycle at Pearson
