    Product Managers often hear their role described as being the “CEO of the product”, but we all know CEOs have actual authority while PMs need to lead without ‘officially’ leading. Gaining influence is difficult to achieve and, just like your product, it’s a job that’s never done. This talk will approach the problem through an iterative lens by providing actionable steps you can try, modify, & re-try to gain influence with your stakeholders/cross-functional teams/clients.
