> What key people helped shape you into the product manager you are today?

Two people really stand out – one of my early bosses whilst at O2 (Ish Sidat) had an incredible eye for detail and a knack of pulling meaningful insight from vast amounts of data, which shaped and enhanced my appreciation and usage of data. My boss whilst at Walmart/Asda (Kate Cuthbertson) was without a doubt the most customer-centric person I’ve worked with. Everything Kate did was gleaned from customers, developed with customers, validated by customers and ultimately loved by customers. I was really fortunate to grow as a product manager under both their stewardship, as it has allowed me to balance the data and analytics available against being thoroughly customer centric.

TBPP Recognizes 1 person each year, invites them to speak and share their knowledge and experience with the larger product community. The nominations can be submitted by anyone. And, if you are the first to submit the winning nominee, you too will be rewarded  Over the course of the year, the various nominees are interviewed and the finalists narrowed down to: The Best Product Person of the year .
