AIPMM Sponsors Product Camp Dallas/Ft Worth
The Association of International Product Marketing and Management announces support of ProductCampDFW at the silver sponsorship level.
ProductCamps are a worldwide movement of innovative, user-generated "unconferences" that offer the latest strategies and tactics to teach companies how to develop, manage, and position their products to win in the marketplace. Unlike traditional conferences, specific presentation topics at ProductCamp are chosen and voted on by attendees. Voting takes place in real time at the event. Information sharing is expected and encouraged. This open format is in deliberate contrast to the "no recording" rules at most conferences. At ProductCamp DFW all participants participate in some manner: presenting, leading a discussion, showcasing a best practice, or sharing their experiences in addition to event management before, during and following the event.
Hector Del Castillo, PMP, CPM, CPMM who is Product Marketing Director and Certification Trainer at AIPMM loves attending product camps. He says "I've proposed two sessions: The Product Manager Pathfinder: How To Prosper As A Product Manager or Marketing Manager and Creating a Product Strategy to Drive Your Company's Revenue Growth. I'm excited to participate, share my expertise with the ProductCampDFW community, and answer any questions about the field, educational opportunities, and careers within product management."
About ProductCamp DFW
June 23rd 2012 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM at the University of Texas at Dallas- School of Management, 800 West Campbell Road, Richardson, TX 75080.
Producing the event are members of the Dallas/Fort Worth Product Group, a vibrant and interactive social community of product professionals which meets the 4th Tuesday of every month from March - October open to anyone in the DFW metro-area. The purpose is to create opportunities for area Product Professionals (Developers, Marketing, Managers, Innovators, Strategists and others alike) to meet and interact. It's a fantastic way to meet fellow Product People in a relaxed and conversational environment where the group can share best practices, tips, techniques and strategies with the objective of learning and providing opportunities to develop each member's knowledge base and of course network!
