Planning some 2019 PM Goals? Take a tip or two (or three or four...) from our February speakers.

This month, we bring three speakers to tell us about their everyday work as product managers. What are some of the daily challenges and functions of this role? What ways of work work best for them? The role of a PM takes many forms across different teams, organisations, and levels. We bring you two interesting cases to learn about from companies here in Norway:

“User research as a team effort in Peil” - Geir Larsen and Veronica Heltne, Schibsted

"Building actionable strategy" - Swati Sharma, Telenor Norway.


Geir Larsen, Schibsted
Geir Larsen is Product Manager for Peil, a news app from VG. He has many years of experience from several roles within VG and Schibsted.

She´s now the Head of UX for Publishing Next, an experimental hub in Schibsted focused on finding and building new independent businesses.

Swati Sharma, Telenor Norway
