Level up your organisation
My only goal is to leave every company I work with feeling inspired and well-equipped to build products people love (and that they love working on).
What I help with
Hiring the right leadership
When it comes to needing leadership to steward your product practices, I’ll design the org you need to succeed, help you understand your skills gaps, and work together with your recruiting team on critical hires.
Developing high-performing teams
Enhance your team’s skills with the right input. Team building is tricky, which is why I’ll help you scale or educate the teams your company needs to succeed, including increasing autonomy, cross-functional collaboration, and communication across the organization.
Establishing product strategies and transformations
Your customers and your business are unique. Find the best ways to serve them by hiring me to shape your strategies, help you execute well, or be your internal advocate when working with external transformation agencies.
Cultivating communities of practice
Make success sustainable with a working community that knows how to ask the important questions, find answers, and work together to learn and iterate. I’ll help you design the space for people to continue improving things long after I’m gone.
Ways to work together
As the Chairman of a fast-growing, profitable start-up with global impact, and with experience from venture capital and start-up operations, I help boards as an advisor and non-exec director.
I can join you as a short-term product leader to help you get established, build a product culture, and hire the right product and technology executives for your company.
Coach & consultant
If you’re struggling to innovate, get your team aligned, or need help figuring out how to build and scale your product team, I’m here to help.
From getting everyone aligned on product strategy, exploring new customer strategies, and more, I’ll make sure you have the right conversation.
What I believe in
Autonomous, cross functional teams
Removing dependencies between siloed departments, setting up autonomous teams, and giving them the space to do their best is ultimately how your product will be successful.
Build continuous processes for discovering new ways to solve customer problems and deliver value. Your customer should be at the heart of everything you do.
Empathy comes first
Listen closely, ask better questions, and nurture the capacity to relate to your customer and your colleagues.
Teams that feel safe to take risks, have difficult conversations, and be vulnerable in front of one another far outperform teams without this attribute.
Communities of practice
Develop – and don’t stop developing – highly skilled, diverse collectives of people to push you to take in new ideas, innovate, and sustain real growth.
Everyone has a voice
Diverse teams build better products, but it’s not enough. Make sure every voice gets heard in the conversation by fostering inclusive cultures and amplifying quiet voices.
