BECOMING A PRODUCT MANAGER: Debbies non-linear journey into the realm of product. How embracing opportunities, even when they seem peripheral, can lead you closer to your passion.

"I sort of knocked on my boss's door and didn't specifically ask for a product job straight off. I kind of said, well, I could do some of this... And I sort of slowly started to do some parts around the edges that then got me closer and closer."

UNDERSTANDING YOUR ORGANIZATION: A masterclass on immersing oneself in an organizations ethos. Debbie shares the quintessence of crafting products that resonate profoundly with both the business and its customers.

"The thing that is really important is you really understanding your organization... if you've not walked some time in other peoples shoes and you don't really understand how your business operates, youre never gonna be able to figure out what is gonna be that thing, that idea, or the product that will really resonate."

EMPATHY IN PRODUCT MANAGEMENT: The heart and soul of product management lies in empathy. Learn from Debbie about understanding diverse challenges and how this underpins a product managers success.

"But if you can't sit with someone and emphasize... if you can't empathize with the challenge that the person in front of you, say in sales or marketing, has, then youre not ultimately gonna be as good at your job as you could be."

THE FUTURE OF PRODUCT MANAGEMENT: Step into the future with Debbie as she ruminates on the trajectory of product management, the intersection with AI, and the evolving roles in the corporate cosmos.

"I think questioning and people who work for me... Does product head to the C-suite or doesn't it? And alongside AI, what do any of our roles become in that context? It's both really interesting and quite a big challenge and dilemma."
