Principal Strategist,

Christine has been in product management for 12+ years, and has held roles in product starting as an IC Product Manager all the way to Head of Product Operations. She’s done so across finance, fintech, and SaaS and has focused on not only delivering product and outcomes to customers, but strengthening product teams while doing so. Christine believes great experiences for customers start with a frictionless product experience that helps them build trust with the company, ultimately creating a partnership vs a transactional relationship. Her passion for connecting product people to their partners and customers helped guide her throughout her career in product and has been foundational to her role as a pioneer in Product Operations, and thought leader in the product space. She’s led and coached teams through product-led transformation and continues to mentor product leaders on setting up foundations for strong teams, creating and delivering best practices, and creating a system for product managers to do their best in. She’s currently the Principal Strategist for Pendo and Mind the Product, and enjoys giving back to the product community while helping many understand product management is a discipline, and not just a role in technology.

Talks & Content

The rise of Product Operations was no accident, and while some questioned it’s relevance during and after the Pandemic, it’s becoming more defined and a critical focus. Between the growing importance of product-led growth as a core business model and the significance of the product manager, we are seeing the need for alignment, transparency, and a strong system for high performing teams on the rise across all types of companies.
