James Mayes

Co-founder & CEO, Mind the Product

James has been with Mind the Product since the first conference in London in 2012. Initially focussing on commercial sponsorships, he’s taken on an ever increasing number of challenges as the company has grown, leading to his appointment as CEO in 2017. He still owns many of the partnership discussions and spends much of his time travelling to maintain and develop these relationships.

Before joining Mind the Product, James had two other careers. He started as a tech recruiter in 1996 (first project: building Europe’s first Java development team for IBM’s research lab) and continued in this industry for 12 years. His focus was on building niche technology teams for startups and enterprise alike. He embarked on a startup journey of his own in 2009 in a commercial/product role, exiting TweetJobs in 2011 to continue his learning for a year with another of London’s hottest firms in the social talent/community space.

Making Remote Inclusive

The culture of work and the very nature of how we do business have evolved massively in the last few years. This session will dive into how remote working has changed our office culture, our team communication and the management approaches required. James hasn’t been office-based since 1999, so he’s plenty of experience to draw on – and will bring a selection of advice and examples from other firms too. A strategic conversation with tactical advice.
