Director of Educational Strategy, Robomatter
As the Director of Educational Strategy at Robomatter, one of the best decision I made was enrolling our team into Roman’s Product Strategy and Roadmap Online Course. Roman’s class offered tremendous insight into our current strategy and how that strategy needed to grow and mature with our product. I was very impressed with the organization of the course and how Roman made each class interactive, as opposed to just delivering content with a lecture. Roman’s class made us think deeply about our product and strategy. I highly recommend his class.
Director, Compliance Programme Operations
Roman has tremendous knowledge of product strategy and management and recently delivered a highly engaging and interactive product strategy workshop for us to a group that comes from a range of backgrounds and disciplines. He was able to get us all on the same page and provide us with some extremely practical tools and tactics for driving our product strategy forward.
Product Director at notonthehighstreet.com
Roman delivered an excellent training day for us. He brings a simplified clarity to ideas on Product Management which belies the depth of thought and power behind them.
