Are you currently involved in a startup?

No. Experience more as driving change and lean startup approach within a large organisation, GE's Consumer Finance division in Australia.

If yes, what industry is the startup in?

Financial Services, Retail and E-commerce

What is the biggest challenge you've faced taking a startup from concept to market?

Driving cultural change within a large organisation and to accept that version 1.0 is less about perfection and more about commencing learning/knowledge phase.

Describe your startup philosophy in a sentence (if you have one)

No real catchy one liner. Understand your customers and market, identify opportunity, always be highly suspicious of your assumptions, launch, validate and iterate, collaborate and empower your team and learn from failure..

Would you be willing to talk at a meetup about your experiences or area of expertise?

Yes, once I begin attending and get to know the community...

Introduction

Experienced product development leader across e-commerce and retail/consumer finance. Recently relocated from Melbourne Australia and looking forward to getting involved in the local London lean startup community.
