OCTOBER 30TH, 2019 | 12PM - 8PM PT



jQuery UI Accordion - Default functionality


CPOs, Directors and VPs of Product. The content will be catered exclusively towards the unique challenges of a modern product executive. In addition, the AWIP Exec Summit selection committee will be inviting a select group of outstanding AWIP community members who are on the cusp on transitioning into executive / leadership roles.


We anticipate having ~100 total guests who will be nominated from select leaders and organizations from the tech community, with engagement being driven via panels, lightning talks, and small-group discussions. This will both be an opportunity for our AWIP Ambassadors to network and provide each other with best practices for the most common challenges facing our product leaders today, as well as for NextGen leaders to foster mentoring relationships with our esteemed Ambassador community. If you believe you are a good candidate for our second summit, please complete the application form.
