At VSW we value enthusiasm and engagement, so we will be operating a first-come first-served policy for ALL our events. Registration will open 10 minutes before each event. So if you turn up before the capacity of the event is met, you will be given a seat.

Product Manager and Marketing Specialist
As a marketing graduate, I embarked on my career with a dream job on the Membership Team at Tourism Vancouver. After a year, I decided now was the time to fulfil my dream of moving to London, UK.

I started working as a Marketing Executive at the British Dental Association focussed on email marketing, retention and internal communications. I worked on exciting projects like revamping our whole email strategy and developing an internal communications strategy.

Once we got the foundations set, I was promoted to Marketing Manager. In addition to developing the marketing strategy for all of our events, products and services, I managed, trained and coached a dream team of five.

I moved back to Vancouver in November 2018 and re-trained as a web developer at Lighthouse Labs. As a marketing professional, I often found myself frustrated when I couldn't make small web changes or use SQL to analyze our data. Web development allowed me to gain a better understanding of how web apps work and how I can use it better to communicate with customers.

After working in web development for 2.5 months, we noticed a need for a product manager. I took on this role to better understand our customers and plan features to be built on the platform.

As a newly Certified Scrum Product Owner, I'm seeking opportunities in Product Management to help Vancouver companies add value to customers' lives.
