In the now…

> What excites you about your current products?

We’re literally changing the future of money. Money is the most emotive of all products, and arguably the most widely used whilst at the same time fundamentally flawed. Imagine having the opportunity to change that. If that doesn’t excite you, then I don’t know what would. 

Watch and learn more about Adam…

More to Come

Over the coming weeks we will be speaking with and learning more from Adam Warburton.

In the now…

> Whose shoes would you like to walk in for a day? Why?

Is it too clichéd to say Tim Cook? Ok, in that case it’d have to be Marc Andresseen (of a16z). To have invested in and been at the start of Twitter, Skype, Instagram, Airbnb and many others, a day in his shoes would be a true learning experience for any product manager.

Watch and learn more about Adam…
