Troubleshooting interviews + 10% off the masterclass!
10% the first-ever Deploy Empathy day-long masterclass
I am SO excited to be giving the first in-person Deploy Empathy customer interviewing masterclass in Aarhus, Denmark in a few weeks at GOTO Aarhus!
GOTO has agreed to a discount for Deploy Empathy readers. Just use the code MICHELE10 at checkout. The code will work for both masterclass and conference tickets.
A conference ticket is not required for the masterclass, so you could, for example, just come for the masterclass if you don't have time to go to the conference as well.

Tuesday June 14 9am-4pm
The workshop will be in English, but I have to include a recent tweet from Nicklas Kevin Frank recommending the workshop to a friend in Danish!
(Translation: "See this here, given that you teach multimedia design, I think this is just the thing for you. If not the masterclass, then the book is at least a must read. Deploy Empathy. I have it if you need a peak before you buy!")
Catch the replay of Troubleshooting Interviews!
Last week, I chatted with the Product Makers community about all of the things that can go wrong with interviews, including finding people to talk to, knowing whether to give an incentive or not, dealing with awkward silences, and how to get a conversation back on track.
One thing I hope you'll remember when something goes awry in your interviews is that it's okay. It happens to everyone, even seasoned pros!
You can read the recap and watch the video from the event below.

Join me in tearing apart the truly terrible Henry Ford quote in Hamburg!
One last event announcement for today (it's a busy couple of weeks!). I'm excited to have some fun at Mind the Product: Hamburg on June 17.
If your skin crawls when you hear this retort to talking to customers, then my talk is for you:
"Well if Henry Ford asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses."
I'm almost done with my slides and am having an absolute ball tearing this quote (which he didn't even say!) to shreds. SHREDS. It'll be fun.
If you'll be there, or live in Hamburg, let me know! Would love to chat.

BOOK REVIEW: Deploy Empathy by Michele Hansen — www.linkedin.com A product manager who does not know how to interview customers is like a musician who doesn't know scales. Or a carpenter that doesn't know how to hammer a nail.
