Design really is a Product Manager's best friend! Don't believe us? Come to the next monthly BBVA Design Event and let Alex Samano, entrepreneur, Co-Founder and CEO of Life Dreams, Inc, convince you.

Here are the a few of the questions that Alex will address:

- What does a Customer/Market centric framework for Product Innovation look like?

- What is Design from the perspective of a Product Manager?

- Where does Design fit in the Product Innovation process? - What business problems does design solve?

- How to make a designer your 'best friend'?

The event will conclude with a cocktail on our lovely terrace.
