Hi Growth Hackers,

Date: Wednesday May 16th

Time: 6pm - 8.30pm

Location: Level 20, 680 George St, Sydney NSW 2000

Speaker 1: Benjamin Wirtz - “The Debate: Product & Growth”.

Over the past 10 years, Benjamin has been living and breathing digital products, from building and leading teams, to founding his own startups and raising investment in Silicon Valley, to helping publicly listed companies like Atlassian launch, grow and platformize theirs.

In 2017, he helped over 20 Australian companies take their Product and Growth game to another level, while also teaching Product Management at General Assembly.

A regular debate in tech companies is about where the line between Product and Growth teams should be, or if Growth should be part of every Product Manager's roadmap. In his talk, Benjamin will shine some light on the trade-offs between the different approaches, as well as some best (and worst) practices he has picked up over the years.

Speaker 2: Luke Metcalf - “How data science can power growth hacking ”.

Luke Metcalfe is a data consultant and tech entrepreneur with 18 years' experience building data companies including Microburbs, Netcomber (sold to US company) and NationMaster (attracted 800 million pageviews so far). He's consulted and helped build data teams for Australian corporates like News Corp and Monash University.

My talk will discuss:
* How data science can power growth hacking
* How to build a data science team and orient them towards an iterative approach.
* War stories: hacking for growth in startup land.
