Leading a Session Is Easier Than You May Think

You don’t have to be an expert to lead a session.  Share an observation or something new that you’ve learned. Lead a panel. Share your insights. Share your questions.  Share your expertise. Share your ideas.

As you can see, ProductCamp is all about sharing with the community, so please don’t be shy! We encourage everyone to propose a session.

Feeling Shy?  Team with a friend! 

And if you are feeling shy, consider teaming up with a friend or forming a mini panel for your session.

Your session makes ProductCamp great!

Last year we had 430 attendees and over 35 proposed sessions. We expect this year’s attendance to be even larger, so let’s make this the best ProductCamp ever in Boston by proposing even more sessions! The success of ProductCamp depends on you — the community.

Don’t wait

Each year after ProductCamp ends, folks tell us they wish they’d proposed a session. Don’t miss your opportunity to share your ideas and learn from colleagues. Now is the time to begin thinking about your session.
