#TheRemotePM @makingjam

Intelligent People, London’s leading product management recruiter, is proud to partner with JAM to sponsor their new virtual event featuring some of the product community’s leading experts, aimed at helping you achieve amazing results while working remotely.

What is The Remote PM?

JAM has responded to the current challenges by launching a virtual event to help distributed product management teams communicate, collaborate and build.  The format blends carefully-curated sessions, fireside chats and guided discussions –– all designed to help you stay sane and productive as a newly remote team.

There is no better time to connect

Building great products at a distance is possible. While it’s not something you figure out overnight, you can learn from other people’s experiences. This event is the perfect place to be open and vulnerable. Share your questions and struggles with those who’re already leading the remote transition.

You’ll learn how to:

– adapt your product practices in times of crisis

– adopt remote-first communication rituals

– continue building great products at a distance

As a bonus, you’ll connect with fellow attendees and speakers during fun speed networking sessions.
