February 11: Lateral Leadership Training in Berlin, Germany

This masterclass will help you master the challenges of being a lateral leader.  By also recognizing alignment, empathy and escalation as helpful tools, you’ll be able to maintain and strengthen your leadership role.

My lateral leadership training is not a dissection of theoretical leadership principles or psychological frameworks you get taught in traditional ‘leadership trainings.’ Instead, I will share first perspective stories from my eight years of experience in product management and provide hands-on advice for your daily work with agile teams.

February 12: Lean Startup Summit Berlin, Germany

I will host a roundtable discussion on how to successfully apply lateral leadership in agile environments. This session will help you understand what it takes to successfully apply lateral leadership. It will guide you through strategic alignment with your team and individual alignment with other team members. By recognizing empathy and escalation as helpful tools, you’ll be able to maintain and strengthen your leadership role within agile teams.

April 4-7: Keynote on OKR in Product Management and Forum facilitation on Lateral Leadership at JAM Product Leaders Retreat in Wales, UK

I'm pumped to join this this new and exciting conference format by the fine folks at JAM as a speaker. The Product Leaders Retreat is in the beautiful Welsh countryside and will bring together a small group of like-minded peers to share honest stories and lessons learned focused on the key challenges faced by product leaders today.
Over three days we'll enjoy engaging talks, forums and activities where we'll discuss everything from becoming a better leader to overhauling your processes. This is a unique opportunity to unwind, connect with fellow makers, eat great food, learn from others, and head back to the office ready to take on your next challenge

April 11th: Combining OKR and Agile Product Management Training in Berlin, Germany.

Objectives and Key Results (OKR) are a powerful way to enable autonomous (product) teams while keeping a company-wide focus on building what matters. And while there are few 'hard' rules around how to implement OKR, there certainly are some best practices to follow when you want to see it unfold its true potential.
But when you introduce a progressive tool like OKR to an organization which is already working using Agile methodologies, you can run into some challenges: How do OKR and Epics relate? Which impact have OKR on my product roadmap? In which way can I integrate OKR into my existing Scrum routines? And what are actual good OKR for Product Managers?

Together with Sonja Mewes, Founder and Lead OKR Consultant at Beautiful Future, I've created a hands-on workshop to answer these questions.

April 25: Keynote on Remote Product Teams at Agile-Lean Ireland in Dublin, Ireland

Ever since the shift towards agile practices, product teams have hung on to a set of core attributes, which range from cross-functional, to customer-centric, all the way up to iterative and independent. But there’s one aspect which should vanish from this list of must-haves: co-located. In this talk, I will bust the most common myths around remote work by using practical examples to translate challenges of co-located teams into a remote setup. I will also point out why so many companies are dissatisfied with their existing remote setups and how they can create inclusive environments which enable collaboration on eye level across multiple locations.
