Head of Product & Product Coach AT ProductHuddle
Empowerment in action: moving from ‘culture-clash’ to modern product management culture
“Self-contained, cross-functional product team looking for vacancy at well-funded, self-aware software company, who’s ready for proper product practices and global success” - as a product leader, I’ve actually been offered this job - and learned quickly that fairytales still don’t exist.
Successful products - and the organisations that build them - need more than just autonomy, mission statements and funding. They need functioning product cultures that reach further than the product team.
Product cultures are hard to develop and maintain, and it takes time to get your organisation onboard. But it always starts with some simple, actionable steps which every team can take, starting tomorrow.
I’m a product coach and practitioner, living in London. I’ve spent the last decade working in digital product management and product leadership roles, and found my true passion in coaching product people and teams. I've worked in various industries (MarTech, Healthcare, Not For Profit) on B2B and B2C propositions, past companies include GlaxoSmithKline, The Access Group, Emarsys (now part of SAP) and Patsnap.
I'm also the co-founder of the Emarsys Product Academy, and have trained more than 200+ product managers in workshops and on the job.
