About James Mayes


I’m a born and bred Brit who’s spent the last 20 years moving between startup tech, talent acquisition and events. I’m an outdoors beats indoors type. I completed the inaugural TechBikers Paris to London ride in 2012 and served on the committee through to 2015. I’m also a member of ICE, serving on the committee for 2016-17.

Currently, I’m Co-Founder and MD for Mind The Product – the world’s largest community and events series for technology product management. We run events in nearly 100 cities around the world, gather amazing content and run world-class conferences in London and SF. The community comprises over 50,000 members, drawn from a wide mix of firms (startups > enterprise) and is backed by companies including Microsoft, Rackspace, Facebook, Tesco, Lloyds and many more.

I’m also Chairman to a careers startup for MBA’s and Board Advisor to the world’s finest SaaS product for Product Managers.

I live on the UK’s sunny south coast and travel often. Scarily logical son, fiercely independent daughter (nine and six respectively).

Most of my online activity is on Twitter.
