Ashley's presentation at STL Product Camp 2013 was spot on: pragmatic, succinct and even came with a couple of immediately actionable aha moments.

As a Product Manager, I've done it all...
Those of us who are Product Managers know that it's one of those jobs that doesn't end with what's in the job description. Product Managers are often called upon to go above and beyond the usual PM description, and that makes us a true "jack of all trades". Not only do we set direction for our products, but we're often called upon to assist with sales, engage with customers, manage projects, do demos and presentations, and much more.
I've not only performed the job responsibilites required of me to the best of my abilities, but I've also augmented those responsibilities with participation in local professional groups and events such as the yearly St. Louis Product Camp conference.
Have a look at some of the things I've been called upon to do as a PM below.
