For the 6th time in as many years, we brought to a close last week our annual digital product and service conference, Canvas, having heard some brilliant talks from 10 inspiring speakers. Selling out yet again, over 500 product people packed out Birmingham’s iconic Town Hall for a day of learning, inspiration and networking.
We tell the insider stories from product people; there's no sales talks or evangelists here, only actionable insights from people solving real customer problems.
Unless you’ve lived in a cave for the past 9 months, you’d have had to work very hard not to have at least heard or seen something about Canvas. We curated an exceptional line-up of talks from a variety of speakers across multiple sectors and industries. From designers to engineers, from product managers to strategists, this year we continued the theme of uncovering the product stories behind some of the world’s most interesting companies, breaking the day into four distinct parts:
* Building the new featuring Thriva and Microsoft Research
* Measure & Grow featuring Duolingo, Tumblr and All 4
* Challenges of Scale featuring Buzzfeed, Monzo and Google Home
* Culture First featuring Starling Bank and True Ventures
