** Product Tank - the Black Mirror edition**

We often focus on the blog ready, conference appropriate stories from the world of product. But what would happen if we jumped through the Black Mirror and looked at the less savoury side of things? This month our three speakers are going to look at the ethical dilemmas our work can throw up and how you can navigate them to build products that people love.

Roisi Proven - Product Manager at Gower Street Analytics

Roisi will be picking out a few recent product launches or ideas and looking at how they might turn "grimdark" if they were featured in an episode of the Black Mirror show.

Amie-Rose Long - Product Manager (Contract) at NBCUniversal Media

To prepare for this session, Amie has been interviewing a number of senior product leaders. She will be highlighting earlier career moments from this group, picking out difficult decisions they had to make and how they approached these ethical crossroads.

Nathan Kinch - Co-founder and CEO at Greater than X

Greater Than X works at the forefront of the personal information economy. They help brands evolve their culture, workflows and practices in such a way they’re able to systematically release inherently trustworthy, data-driven products and services to their customers.

Kindly popping in to see us from his usual base in Melbourne, Nathan will be talking through some of the key components of an ethical organisation and offering some actionable takeaways for people to go try.
