M!NDFUL Product Leader Retreat

August 12 - 14, 2020 at Riederalp (Switzerland)

With M!NDFUL I am creating the kind of open and honest exchange among product leaders that I wish I had access to when I started leading product teams. Let's bring our whole self to this gathering, let's share our challenges and support each other in becoming even better at mentoring our teams and creating meaningful products. I am pouring my heart and soul into this retreat to make it a unique and joyful experience that is quite different from regular conference or classroom experiences. Join me on this journey and treat yourself to a retreat you know you deserve 🙂

M!NDFUL Product Leader Retreat

Are you heading a team of product managers or designers? Or are you responsible for product development in your company? Then chances are your days are packed, it is a constant challenge to keep your product team happy and to make time for strategic work. You might be looking for ways to exchange with fellow product leaders and for a sustainable way to deal with your ever increasing work load. We feel you!

That is why we launched our brand-new Product Leader Retreat in the beautiful Aletsch region in the Swiss mountains. This isn't yet another regular product conference!
We designed this event to be cosy and intimate for us to have open conversations and really connect with each other. That is why there are only 20 spots available on the program.

Join us for three days of workshops on product strategy and leadership, peer-coaching and mindful activities such as yoga, meditation and hiking.

Early-Bird Tickets are available until April 30 and we grant a full refund policy in case the event needs to be canceled on our side due to COVID-19. However, we are confident that we will be able to host the event in August - and we will need inspiring in-person events more than ever after a long period of ``social distancing``.

For Executive Product Leaders

We know it can get lonely at the top. M!NDFUL is meant to provide an opportunity for executive product leaders to connect with like-minded peers in an open and intimate setting. That is the reason this event is exclusively reserved for those of you who are responsible for a group of at least two product managers and/or designers (in a role such as p.ex. Heads of Product, CPO, VP or Director of Product, Head of UX, C-level executives of start-ups and NGOs etc.)

Senior Product Managers who are responsible for two or more PMs or POs as direct reports are encouraged to register as well.

Workshop Topics

As product people, we are never done learning. Our interactive sessions are offered by seasoned product leaders from renowned companies such as Doodle, Indesign and more. Our cozy setting is designed to create trust between our participants and will encourage an honest and intense exchange between peers that will help to share best practices and support each other in the long run.
