From Agile Coach to VP Product – The search for the power to do things differently

with Benji Portwin

Having found what I thought was my calling as an Agile Coach, I took the tough decision to move sideways into Product Management in search of something I once shunned: the Power to make the important decisions.

Now “in the room” as the VP Product for accuRx, a hyper growth health-tech scale up, I share what it’s like to be on the other side of the door and what it’s like to build a Product Function from scratch.

I share how I coped when my values were compromised, what I learnt from being thrown under the bus and what it’s like to work with passionate founders. I also talk about why I’ve built a hiring process that makes candidates “walk the walk” and why I still mostly spend my time doing what I love the most… coaching people.
