Product Collective founders Mike Belsito and Paul McAvinchey are no strangers to the stage, particularly when it’s speaking to corporate audiences about innovation and how everyone can think like a modern product manager. Both Mike and Paul deliver talks that are as engaging and entertaining as they are informative. To Mike and Paul, everybody has a “product” to manage and anybody — even in the most traditional of industries — can get value out of thinking like today’s modern product manager. Delivered individually or together, Mike and Paul’s talks are perfect for corporate events, industry association keynotes, and annual conferences.

Between Mike and Paul, they’ve written a bestselling book, produced the only multi-day product management conference in the USA, led product management for technology companies, started and sold companies, co-host a top business podcast, and been named one of the most influential people in product management in 2016.
