Want to get on your Soapbox? Know someone who might?

What makes great product happen? What insights do you have about making getting successful products to market? How does design play a role in creating great businesses? We're looking to give people with a passion for product a chance to present ideas to a group of talented folks who share that energy.

Our audience of over 4,000 newsletter subscribers will know about it, we'll blog a write up summary about it (we've received over 15,000 views on posts), our clientele will hear about it, and we'll provide a podcast recording of the event available on iTunes for distribution. Presentations typically run 20-30 minutes followed by an informal Q&A with the group. Interested?
