Announcing our keynote speaker: Christian Miccio

1 Nov

As we get closer to November 20th we have some great news to share. First up: we found an amazing keynote speaker: Christian Miccio, Product Guru at Google and Shazam, will join us to make this day even more memorable.

Christian was, until december 2010, a Product Manager at Google. He launched features to a very large consumer base worldwide, while helping the Zurich Google office grow to over 900 people. He worked with many teams at Google, including UX, engineering, legal, strategic partnerships, recruiting, customer service and more. He was involved in several Google developer days, from Paris to Lagos, and is also involved with startups in his spare time through Seedcamp. Prior to Google, Christian was an early joiner at Shazam, a music identification service. There, he planned and built out a large part of the original service, specifically creating one of the largest digital music databases in the world. Christian has an MsC from EPFL and holds an MBA from INSEAD.

We’re very happy that Christian Miccio will join us and add another dimension to the ProductCamp Amsterdam program, making this a trigger for more people to join us! If you haven’t registered yet, please do so at And if you have, please spread the word and bring along your friends and colleagues for a great day of “talking product”!

Hope to see you November 20th!
