For Guest Speakers

I'm interested in guest speaking at ProductTank NYC! Who should I get in touch with to make this happen?
Feel free to reach out to any one of the ProductTank NYC Organizers, or you can use this form to contact us >

 

How long should my presentation be?
Typically we recommend presentations to last between 12 to 18 minutes. In our rare and special events where it is one guest speaker, it’s 40 minutes.

 

What do you think I should talk about in my presentation?
Talk about products you have worked on, your experiences as a product manager or product developer, preferred tools/methods, lessons you’ve learned…things of that nature. We even love to hear war stories about failures and successes, so feel free to share those if any.

 

Which presentation software am I allowed to use?
PowerPoint would be ideal. At ProductTank we like to combine all the guest speaker presentations into one event deck. By having one event deck we are able to move through the presentations and the overall event rather quickly.

 

Can I use Keynote to do my presentation?
Yes. You can use Keynote, and we will need a copy of the presentation in the Keynote file format or in a PDF format.

 

Can I use any of the other following software to do my presentation?

  • Prezi
  • Chromecast
  • SlideRocket
  • Flair
  • Ezvid

Sorry. While we like all of these software products, to ensure that the ProductTank event goes well, we suggest that you stick to using the following:

  • PowerPoint
  • Keynote
  • Google Slides

 

Will I be video recorded?
Yes. We video record our meetup events, unless you request otherwise.

 

What will you do with the video recording?
We publish a well polished video on the Mind the Product web site.
