Author of The Product Manager's Desk Reference launches event

Each week, ProdMgmtTalk features an expert guest speaker who raises questions to stimulate the twitter discussion.  Product management expert and practitioner, Steven Haines, author of The Product Manager's Desk Reference, is "speaking" to launch the weekly event on Monday, February 7, 2011 at 3:00 PM Pacific Standard Time.

"My mission is to improve capabilities of people who create, market, and manage products and services, and the companies in which these people work. At Sequent Learning, we created the Product Management Exchange (PMEX) to inspire product managers, marketers, and other practitioners to share their unique experiences. ProdMgmtTalk can be a valuable tool for extending hard earned lessons to an international community of people in companies with products."

Tweet traveled 7400 miles

The Global Product Management Talk was conceived by Cindy F. Solomon, a San Francisco Bay Area certified product manager and Adrienne Tan of brainmates, an Australian product management company, to bring international product managers together with experts in the field.

Solomon explains two things that prompted her to tweet a request to collaborate creation of a product management twitter talk, "Online, I attend #blogchat and #pr20chat twitter talks with hundreds of people. The conversation and connections continue beyond the event. Offline, I participate at Product Camps, where product management, product development and product marketing people come together for a day to share expertise and experience."

In Australia, Adrienne Tan founder of brainmates responded to Cindy's tweet request to collaborate and provide an avenue for Product Managers to converse and debate on a global scale. "brainmates is a team of passionate Product Managers that are looking for new ways to enrich the Australian Product Management community. ProdMgmtTalk on twitter gives the Australian product management community a weekly opportunity to interact with international colleagues."
