Thor Mitchell – Former Chief Product Officer at Crowdcube
Users have a tendency to surprise you by using your product in ways that you did not expect, but that turn out to be entirely understandable in retrospect. This presentation will review a set of concrete examples, drawn from 12 years working on products at Google and Crowdcube, and the techniques they suggest to avoid being unpleasantly surprised by your user’s rational behaviour.
Thor has been moving and shaking in the tech world since he got a summer job at a small Bournemouth ISP in 1995. Since then he has gained over 20 years experience in Product Management and Engineering roles at Sun Microsystems, Google, and latterly Crowdcube. Thor is currently taking a well deserved break and we're delighted to welcome him to come and speak with us.
