Speaker: Bruce McCarthy
Speaker Bio: Ever since he was a child, Bruce has been making things. Having spent a lifetime as a builder and innovator, today he has a passion for helping teams work together better to develop compelling products and services. He’s been called the face of Boston product management and (for Top Gear fans) the product management Stig.
Bruce is proud to say that, as a young man, he used LEGOs to obtain food and attract a mate. He went on to become a serial entrepreneur and to lead teams in organizations ranging from startups like NetProspex to market leaders such as ATG, Oracle and D&B. Along the way, he has demonstrated leadership in areas ranging from marketing to acquisitions (on both sides of the table) to partnerships, design, agile enablement, product management and development.
Bruce is a prolific writer, organizer, and internationally sought-after speaker at product management, agile, UX, and innovation events around the world. He leads the Boston Product Management Association and is a regular judge at the Harvard Business School New Venture Competition. Bruce’s many ProductCamp sessions and conference workshops at locations around the world regularly sell out.
Bruce began consulting and advising companies like Vistaprint, Localytics, Huawei, Nuance, and Zipcar in 2012, helping them achieve their product visions. In 2018, he launched Product Culture to provide organizational design, skill building, and coaching services around the world.
