5 Most Popular Webinars of 2020
In the aftermath of the 2020 Product Awards, we were quickly faced with the realization that in-person events wouldn’t be happening for a while. The global pandemic has forced most businesses to rethink how they do things. For Products That Count, it meant moving our Speaker Series events to a webinar format. We were disappointed we wouldn’t be seeing everyone in person and getting to do some networking each month in our chapter cities. However, the webinar format has shown us how far our network of more than 300,000 product managers truly stretches. We’ve had webinar attendees from Australia, Viet Nam, London, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and many other places. Even PMs from smaller cities have had the opportunity to take part in the product conversation.
We put together a list of our five most popular webinars of 2020 so far. So, have you been to one yet? These incredible presentations are from product leaders who have spent time at Verizon Media, Netflix, Paypal, and more. You can find our upcoming webinars listed here.
