BPMA 2014 Gala Event
"The Magic Fit"
Start out 2014 at the BPMA annual gala event. This exciting evening event will include cocktails, networking, dinner, and a fabulous keynote presentation. The BPMA had a banner year in 2013 and broadened its audience and appeal through the new Product Executive’s Forum and the Practitioners Workshops Series, and attendance at BPMA monthly events shot up! Join us at the Gala as we introduce our 2014 events calendar, which will continue to feature a variety of current product management experts and thought leaders.
The science of product management has evolved radically in the last few years. Silicon Valley principles – such as Customer Discovery and Lean Start-Up – are rippling through organizations, transforming how products are conceived and built in companies large and small. As the keynote speaker, venture capitalist and Harvard Business School Professor Jeff Bussgang will share the implications of these new techniques and how they’re turning the world of product management upside down.
The evening will feature:
- Private pre-event networking and Science Magic show for Premiere ticket holders
- General networking and cocktails
- An incredible sit-down dinner catered by the Boston Museum of Science’s Wolfgang Puck Catering
- Presentation of 2013 Year in Review and introduction of BPMA 2014 event calendar
- Keynote speaker Jeffrey Bussgang, general partner, Flybridge Capital Partners
