0210 - On Product Management with Laura Fay

Hosts: Clare Mustapha and Laksh Sharma - 

We are delighted to have Laura Fay join us today. Laura studied Computer Science at Trinity College before setting out to the United States and kicking off her long career in the tech sector.

·       To start, Laura, can you talk about your journey from technologist towards product leadership?

·       The tech sector has always been ‘about the technology’, but is it ‘product’ or ‘service’? What is the right way to think about it? 

·       Do new tech delivery and payment models change how we design and sell digital?

·       Can you talk about the gap between engineers and salespeople? 

·       Should we consider the product person a ‘representative from Sales’ to Development or are they Development’s ambassador to the rest of the company?

·       What would you say to someone who wants to get into product management? What competencies do they need to learn and hone?

·       Questions from the audience.

Well, we’ll wrap up there.

Thank you, Laura, for taking the time to talk with us and share your ideas and experience with us today.

(thanks, wrap-up, summary).
