I have been in Product Management for two decades now (before the title was used outside of FMCG!) I’ve been fortunate enough to have a wide variety of experience in start ups, scale ups and blue chips covering; FinTech, Retail Banking, Financial Services, Personal Media and TV Media hardware and software, Gaming and Betting. I love defining a new product propositions from scratch, or taking a floundering product and giving it a new lease of life! Building up product teams with a real focus on personal development is as important to me as the product we make together.
A great boss once told me that the work we do today will be superseded tomorrow – and so the effort we put into how we lead/the impact we make is what can and should last a lifetime. And so I pride myself on the connections I make and the positive impact I have on people I work with. If you are interested please take a look at my LinkedIn recommendations, they speak for themselves, but if you don’t have the time, it’s worth you knowing that I pride myself on facilitating and growing diverse impactful and collaborative Product Teams and driving business transformation in organisations looking to evolve & adopt best practice product management methodology, and I where I am able I get my teams to push for this throughout the org and not just in the cross functional teams.
I am also the owner of a growing LinkedIn group: The Female Product Lead – where we invite the female product leaders of today and the female product leaders of tomorrow to come together – enabling one another to grow, get support, learn from each other but ultimately a safe space to ask the hard questions and look for answers together.
