Finally landing a successful product with fast user growth. He advanced from solving design tasks to more strategic and business related tasks working closely with the founder and marketing lead. Thomas will share his lessons learned from five perspectives and introduce you to his reflection activity for mindful leaders. After his talk, you can run it for your current career, see what you have learned already and if you might need a change.
