About This Event

This session is part of GA's Product Week, a weeklong festival of free workshops, panel discussions, and interactive events around the ever-evolving world of product management. Check out the full schedule here!

Product managers aren’t just continuously learning new things and need to improve within their product, they are also learning how to do this for themselves in their daily roles. The role of a product manager is ever-evolving and it takes effort and energy to keep up with those changes.

Join General Assembly and seasoned product managers to learn the valuable lessons they learned along the way in their role. They will delve into their most valuable tips, tricks, and best kept secrets of the product community. We hope you can join us!

About the Instructors

Kien Nguyen Photo

Director of Product Management,
Teach For America

When things are ambiguous, I love finding clarity especially when building new products. I also enjoy volunteering and building community for tech / startup professionals in San Diego.

I am a product manager with 3+ years of experience in B2C & B2B software product discovery work and taking high potential ideas and turning them into products.

Currently, I'm a product manager at Teach for America (TFA) where I have the opportunity to define and build products that help improve connectivity and strengthen the community among TFA's 60,000+ alumni.

In my prior product role at Mitchell International, I led user research & product discovery work which resulted in the development of a new product that I saw all the way through from idea to launch and allowed our business unit to secure a new strategic partnership, bringing in $1.5 million in annual recurring revenue.

Being the first in my family to graduate from college and work in product & tech meant I often had to be resourceful to figure next steps. I can not thank the communities that have helped me to grow personally & professionally enough. That is why I try to give back whenever I can. Most recently with Startup San Diego I helped to organize San Diego Startup Week in 2019.

I'm a builder. Over the past 20+ years, I have built successful products, product teams, scalable platforms, product companies, and product communities. I believe "product" is a team sport and I help build better cultures by developing better people & teams that build better products for customers.

Building great products starts with leading people and recognizing greatness in everyone. I use coaching as a way to inspire ordinary people to make extraordinary products. I'm able to create environments where cross-functional teams of product managers, engineers and designers are empowered, leverage human centered design, and focus on shared customer outcomes. These product teams work collaboratively, experiment continuously and ultimately thrive in order to discover & anticipate solutions customers love and also work for the business.

I've worked in B2B, B2C, B2B2C companies including start-ups (a few got acquired), Fortune 500 and everything in between. I inspire high-performing global teams to build valuable, viable, usable, feasible and innovative digital products and platforms at scale. I'm also the co-organizer of the ProductTank Phoenix community with over 1200+ members focused on honing their product craft.
