This Mobile Life Podcast – Season 3 Now Available!

Woohoo! I’m now back with Season 3 of This Mobile Life. After a break of 1 month, the new episodes are now out. I was actually recording during my break. I used the time to collect my thoughts, do some planning and catchup with some friends to record a podcast!

This Mobile Life S3 Launch

I decided to go big and launch with 4 episodes. I’ve heard that helps with the initial burst of downloads, getting featured. I like the idea of it because if you have multiple episodes, people can download a few of them at a time and go through them. Here’s my attempt to do some marketing with some blog posts, email marketing and posting on social media 🙂

4 speaking tips at events

I’ve always found waiting for flights is a good way to blog and kill some time. Right now, I’ve parked myself in a cafe in Heathrow airport sipping on a carrot & apple juice. No better time to blog!

I’m going to be speaking at an event on the topic of “The Future of Product Management” on Wednesday, 1 February 2016. You can RSVP to the event here. The event is run by AcademyXi who’s vision is to change the world by educating the next wave of digital change-makers. They are running a series of events in 2017 on the future of UX (user experience), service design, augmented reality and my favourite topic product management.

I’d like to see more people speak at events so thought I’d share some tips in the lead up to the event. I don’t consider myself an amazing oratory speaker. Its simply something I started doing a few years back. There are a few things I learned along the way and would like to share with you. I’ve used some recent examples leading up to The Future of Product Management event.
