Exceptional products and services are born from valuable insights. The most profound insights aren’t based solely on formal research. They come from Community Voice, a relational engagement with community members and customers. Community Voice is a powerful combination of customer insights and emotional engagement with the customers and community members who have personal investment in both the products you build and the communities they are used in.

This speech explores the concept of Community Driven Product Development (CDPD), a methodology that goes beyond traditional design and development by embracing the wisdom and input of the user community. Seasoned community expert Jake McKee will share how integrating community feedback can lead to groundbreaking products that resonate more profoundly with their audiences and create organic, honest launch day advocacy.

Join us to learn how to harness the Community Voice and revolutionize the way products are conceived and developed. All while delighting your customers and bringing positivity to your product teams.
