Product Manager – The Insider Talks with Technology Experts


In this first, kickstart session we invited Saurav Roy, Product Manager at Booking.com.

During this session with Saurav, we will discuss the skillset and specific knowledge required to get a job as a PM and further grow in the role. Everyone’s case is a little different thus those events will be always in small groups.

– I want to move to a PM role but have no experience, where should I start?

– Should I consider startups or mid-level/big companies?
– How to prepare for PM interviews? Specific examples?
– What does the growth path look like for a PM?
