THE FUTURE OF PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT: FOSTERING INNOVATION WITH MULTI-DISCIPLINARY EXPERTISE
Veronica Best || Sendwithus

Building a successful tech company requires that a group of people with unique combination of skills and backgrounds work together towards a common goal. Our teams must reflect our users and customers: cross-functional, diverse, and always changing. As a product leader, I collaborate with experts from engineering, design, project management, marketing, sales, and customer success. This talk will outline my journey and tech, and share some of the lessons I've learned about building successful teams and winning products.
