DigitalXChange ProductTalk: BBC & Telia transformation

Originating in Berlin, DigitalXChange ProductTalk is coming to Stockholm for the first time and we don’t come alone.

Allan Donald – London proud resident – is joining us to talk about From the Olympics to Brexit: How Product Management transformed the BBC (and what we learned along the way) while David Andreasson will tell us how they work with innovation and commercialization within Telia’s innovation company Division X.


Allan is the Head of Product at BBC. He is leading the product and engineering teams building curation, authoring and metadata tools for creators. Previously he worked for Bloomberg, STV and Sunday Herald.

David is the Head of Product & Technology at Telia. He leads a team responsible for product management, development and operations of IoT & Cloud products within Telias innovation company, Division X. Product areas within his domain are connected car, smart home, cloud marketplace and e-commerce payment engine. Previously he worked for Tele2.

Why attend?

We believe that product is a fascinating field where some do it better than others. The way people do product differs from city to city. A great way to be up to date and learn best practices is meeting leaders from different industries and different cities. ProductTalk is looking to do just that: bring talent from other parts of the world to your city, while finding the best local players.

Not all who wander are lost: there will also be a job board with (product) career opportunities at companies around Europe. (If you’re looking to hire, we could promote the job opening)

Of course there will be plenty of drinks, snacks and takeways.
Last but not least, the first 30 people to arrive will have the chance to win a fitbit 🙂
