Bain Public to take part in a Product Management Conversation with Startup Grind Montréal


(Montréal, Canada) – Paul Ortchanian, Founder, CEO, Head of Product of Bain Public joins Cédric Tawil, Director at Startup Grind Montreal, in a fireside chat discussing what the future of product management holds and how businesses can prepare for it.

This fireside event is hosted by Cédric Tawil from Startup Grind Montreal. Startup Grind has hosted past events with other credible individuals, seeking to guide and give startups the tools they need to be successful in today’s industry. They have had a range of guest speakers at their in-person and (now) online events, such as CEOs and high-end executives of startups and well-established companies.

Some of their high profile guests include: Ashkan Karbasfrooshan (founder, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of WatchMojo); Tara Akhavan (President and General Manager of Faurecia IRYStec Inc.); Julie Lacasse (co-founder of leading tech company TrackTik, currently sitting on the board of Director); and Mehdi Merai (an AI researcher and the CEO of Dataperformers).

About The Event:
Product Management has come a long way since the days when it was indistinguishable from marketing or project management. The success of startups and large tech companies, such as Google and Amazon, combined with the rising profile of product leaders led to a growing appreciation for the discipline. At its best, modern product management has become a holistic discipline that functions at the intersection of business, design, and technology to help teams drive towards product/market fit.

During the chat, Paul and Cédric discussed alot, including:

  • Advice to startups who are looking to take their business to the next level
  • Challenges related to Product Management and Roadmapping that a company faces when scaling
  • What are some of the shifts in product management in the last two years
  • Why is the lack of product managers in Canada an issue? What should be done in order to change that?
  • How is the role of product management changing going into the future?
  • What should companies do now to prepare themselves for the future? What about product managers?
