Embarking on a Transformative Path
Every journey starts with a single step, and mine began over 15 years ago, fueled by a passion for innovation and a vision to transform ideas into impactful products. This journey has been more than a career; it’s been a quest to make meaningful differences in the world of product management.
Milestones of Growth and Leadership
Picture a team, vibrant with ideas but struggling to align them with market needs. At SmartRecuiters, I stepped into this challenge, guiding them through the adoption of dual-track agile methodologies. The transformation was palpable – a 10% market growth and soaring NPS scores, but more importantly, a team invigorated with purpose and direction.
Where the challenge may have overwhelmed others, Adam took it in his stride, took ownership quickly and really evangelised the new product culture across R&D and the broader business. One of Adams superpowers is quickly building trust across the business and painting a compelling vision of the opportunities ahead.
Anyone who knows Adam knows he is passionate about his product craft, an energising person to be around, and will bring a different perspective to conversations.

Collaborations that Shaped the Industry
Learning alongside thought leaders like Marty Cagan wasn’t just about strategic alignment; it was a masterclass in global market trends and innovative thinking. Each keynote speech, whether at Mind the Product or elsewhere, wasn’t just a talk; it was a sharing of a vision, a conversation with peers passionate about pushing boundaries.
A Foundation Built on Knowledge
Education for me has never been a checklist; it’s been a constant companion in my journey. From the corridors of the University of Maryland to the virtual classrooms of Harvard Business School, each learning experience has been a brick in the foundation of my approach to product management.
A Distinct Approach to Product Mastery
My methodology in product management is not just a set of practices; it’s a philosophy born from experience and refined through results. It’s about seeing beyond data, understanding the story it tells, and crafting solutions that resonate not just with markets but with people.
Contributions Beyond the Boardroom
Writing for Mind the Product or Product Craft has never been about just sharing knowledge; it’s been about igniting conversations, challenging norms, and contributing to a community that has given me so much.
Vision for the Future
As I look to the future, my vision is clear – to collaborate with teams and leaders who are not just looking for a consultant, but a partner in crafting legacies. Together, we can set new benchmarks in product management, creating products that don’t just meet needs but define futures.
