What is Product Operations and Why is Everyone so Excited About It?

Product Calgary is excited to host Denise Tilles, CPO and Founder of Grocket at Platform Calgary on December 12, 2023 to talk about Product Operations. This event is co-sponsored by Platform Calgary and Alberta Innovates.

How do you know your product strategy is working? How do your product teams get the data they need to set success metrics, or know if they are on the right path? Product Operations surrounds the product and development teams with the support needed to make the best decisions and move forward.

Denise Tilles will be discussing key takeaways from her recently published book, Product Operations. Co-authored with Escaping the Build Trap’s Melissa Perri, the book is the must-read guide product leaders have been missing. Denise will reveal insights and examples how product operations can be a force multiplier for scaling organizations, based on her own experience and interviewing dozens of scale-up and enterprise companies including Uber, Stripe, Pendo, and more.

Doors will open at 5:00 pm for networking and the talk will start at 5:30 pm. This is a member-only event. Please purchase a membership here prior to the event.

Denise will be joining virtually. Product Calgary members can join us in-person in at Platform Calgary (407 9 Ave SE in Calgary). Members can also join remotely via Zoom (the link will be emailed to before the event).

Please join us afterwards for a holiday gathering at Bottlescrew Bills (140 10 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0A3) at 7:00 pm!
