@nooniesNoonies

The Tech Industry’s Greenest Awards. Public Nominations Are Open. Voting Starts Aug 13.

1. Which 2020 Noonie have you been nominated for?

2. Tell us a bit about yourself.

Since I can remember, I was first and foremost a dreamer. As I child, I used to lose myself for hours in my little bedroom imagining what the future could be like and all the exciting things that were out there, just waiting around the corner.

Now that I am a grown-up, I am still the same, ideas and possibilities are what give me energy.

This is why I chose to become a Product Manager, to be in a constant learning mode and to translate those learning and ideas into reality.
I live both my personal and professional life in terms of experiences I want to make, and I have an obsession to come up with better questions to ask myself every time rather than focusing on getting all the answers.

3. Tell us about the things you make / write / manage / build.

As a Product Manager, I have been responsible for building both traditional software solutions and artificial intelligence and NLP driven technologies. I covered topics raging from automation, to predictions and suggestions and I managed my own Team to build meaning rather than features.

As a Writer, I document both my product experience as I learn along the way and my journey on self discovery, sharing my interpretations and findings to help others get where they want to go faster.

As a Maker, I am on a quest to build a product hat will help people be more aware of their patterns and their narratives to live the life they dream of. Stay tuned.

4. What are you most excited about right now?

Helping Teams and Organisations finding self-awareness to build what matters and discovering myself in the process

5. What are you worried about right now?

Finding the time to experience all the experiences I want to experience!

6. What’s the most useful advice you’ve ever given somebody?

The quality of the life you live depends on the type and quality of the questions you ask yourself.

7. How has the pandemic changed your life and/or career?

I used the pandemic period as a chance to slow down and reflect. As a result I have much better clarity on what experiences I want to make and what I want to achieve, both personally and professionally. The realisation of how times and circumstances are fleeting, has also given the courage to start building my own company.

8. If we gave you $10 million to invest in one thing right now, where would you put it?

In my startup.

9. What’s an opinion you have that most people don’t agree with?

That taking time off to self-reflect and to achieve self-awareness is the real secret to personal and professional success. Slowing down instead of going faster is the key.

10. Which apps can’t you live without?

Notion.

11. What are you currently learning?
