Testimonials
Yulia Lamonova
LBS Student, Aspiring PM
I've been at several meet-ups organised by Liz and Anya. They always bring strong expert speakers, prepare great questions to moderate the discussion and have flawless event organisation. My major learnings about transitioning into Product Management so far: you can't become a PM just by talking about it — you have to act, and you need a supportive tribe by your side because taking action is scary. I've met a great community of likeminded people, including fellow aspiring PMs, experienced PMs and recruiters through Anya and Liz, and I'm thrilled to see them elevating the action part to the next level with the full-day workshop.
FAQs
I've decided to become a PM but I'm struggling to make the change. Will this workshop be suited to me?
Yes, this workshop is specifically designed to help overcome the challenges of the early steps on your career change journey to become a PM. By the end of the workshop, you will:

  • feel more confident about the skills you already possess,
  • have a marketable CV to send around,
  • know the suitable type of roles to apply for.
I have absolutely no idea if Product Management is for me. Will this workshop help me?
This workshop will work best for people who have already decided they want to try on the Product Manager's role. While this does not mean you won't get any insights from the workshop, we would recommend you do some preliminary research to first answer whether Product Management is the right fit for you.

We also run a series of meetups that may help you get more insight into the role. You can join them here.
Have such workshops proven to be successful in helping with career change?
This workshop is designed based on the series of meetups which have proven traction of helping members to transition into product management roles for more than a year. The workshop consists of the exercises and presenters which received the highest feedback ratings from the meetup members.

The workshop is organised by two seasoned tech professionals who have experienced career change first-hand and went through all the stages themselves:

Anya Epishcheva, Principal Consultant @Amazon AWS
Liz Maslakova, Senior Product Manager @Habito
Is this appropriate if I don't have product management experience?
Yes, the workshop is aimed to help people with no official product management experience to transition into the role. There is a multitude of skills that are transferable from other disciplines and make one a great PM candidate. This workshop will help identify such skills and make them visible in the CV.
Who else will be at the workshop?
We expect to have up to 30 aspiring Product Manager at the workshop. It will likely be people from various backgrounds (marketing, consulting, engineering, design) who are looking to move into product management and are actively job hunting.
Will I have to get up and speak in front of the group?
We will have demo practice as part of each section when our facilitator and one of the attendees will demonstrate the exercise in front of the group. We will ask for volunteers among the attendees, but if you prefer not to speak in front of the group you will be given the freedom not to.
Will I need to prepare anything or bring anything with me?
Please bring a laptop and have the latest version of your CV available on it in an editable format.
Can I buy a ticket on behalf of someone else?
Yes, you can buy a ticket on behalf of another person. The important part is that we will need this person's email address to contact them about the workshop's logistics. You can email their contact details to us at hello@tobe.pm along with the order number.
Do you run the workshop on other days?
At the moment we only have one date scheduled but we plan to repeat the workshop in the future. Please message us at hello@tobe.pm if you are interested in attending this workshop on a different date and we'll be in touch when the next one is scheduled.
Do you run workshops outside of London?
At the moment we only run this workshop in London. Please message us at hello@tobe.pm if you are interested in attending this workshop in a different city and we'll look into organising it there.
I have a question that isn't listed here. Who can I ask?
Please message us at hello@tobe.pm and we will get back to you as promptly as possible.
