It is important for Product Managers to network with other Product Managers!
We’ve found it difficult to find appropriate networking events to attend, especially events which do not charge a large, hideous premium.
One networking event we have found very resourceful is the FED networking events that are usually held around once a month in Sydney. These events are FREE. At each event, a guest speaker is interviewed by Mike Walsh. Guest speakers are interesting, sometimes entertaining and generally work in the New Media and Telecommunications Space.
We enjoy the FED nights. It attracts a wide range of people working in the same industry. Its an opportunity for Product Managers to connect with people who have the same interests, pick up information, debate your point of view and grow your business network.
Thanks to Mike and Sally for running the FED events!
