# Product Strategy in SEA- How to transform “Gut Feel” companies into data-driven giants? By Jay Fong


“Big Data”, “Analytics” - these are scary words for some businesses that want to adopt Data Driven Design but don’t know how. During this talk, I will cover how to take businesses with fragmented or non-existent Analytics and help them leverage the power of Data to understand what users want and build great customer-centric products.


# Tough Talks, or how to confront opinions with your teammates

By Giom


The ability to confront opinions through deep and complex topics is key to be a great team or a great company. This topic kept coming back as I was interviewing the most respected developers I knew a couple of years ago in Paris. If you don’t confront opinions, you are not really using all the talents. Now, it’s not easy. I synthesised and structured what I learnt in these interviews, and I‘d like to share it with you:


* how to know your idea is actually a good one

* what are the diplomatic baselines for disagreeing

* when to hold your position and when to change your mind

* what to do if people’s positions are locked and the most important:

* how to learn to be wrong
