Book Jock for a speaking engagement

    What to expect

    Jock’s talks are always heart-felt, mostly entertaining and occasionally thought-provoking. Expect a healthy dose of self-deprecating humour and a left-field take on product management topics, peppered with personal anecdotes from his own experiences, with just a pinch of chaos.

    “Day 2 saw an impressive presentation by Jock Busuttil on user testing. He asked the attendees to lend each other a smartphone and take a picture. What a turmoil that caused ;-) “
