Product Sessions Live is open to anyone who has a passion for product and for digital transformation and technology. With guests from the BBC, Klarna, Groupon, Financial Times, British Telecom, N26, Revolut, Google, Facebook and many more, we do our best to delight the product community all around the world. Join our live sessions to learn from product and digital thought leaders and grow.
After organizing events in 17 cities across Europe and being nominated by B2B Marketing association for the best live event, we wanted to bring it into the digital world to give access to more product aficionados, no matter where they are.
When many think of EdTech, they think back to the clunky software they used at school or that vocab app they used once and never picked up again. Many companies have tried and failed to make learning fun, so how did Babbel create a product so good that it sold more than 10 million subscriptions?
During this session, Geoff Stead (CPO @ Babbel) will present his insights on what really works in the Educational Tech Sector.
