When I ventured into leading teams, I never imagined I would sign up to host a PMA mini podcast series on Product Marketing team structure. Here we are: with 6 amazing product marketing leaders who inspired me to bring the best in our teams everyday.
I am super excited to have had the opportunity to connect with product marketing leaders from the United States to Australia and always open to bringing diverse perspectives across in our podcast: “To Team or not to Team”.
Thank you to the speakers for your time and commitment to make this a reality. And I…
As I reflect back on the past year, I’ve learned a lot about myself and the environment that I thrive.
With everything that the world had to go through, it’s a blessing to pause. Take a deep breath and be grateful for what we have.
Appreciation in a corporate setting is not about the rewards or the…
Lessons learnt on the how, when and where to bring prioritization for the portfolio roadmap with RICE scoring, team capacity and RAPID.
As challenging as it can be, when you get the roadmap priorities right, you know, you’re off to a good start. Portfolio Roadmap Prioritization is the crystal ball that guides the path to stay focused on the right projects and priorities.
Prioritization is where we make the trade-offs, and the decisions on which priority/project we want to take forward, and which to hold off or de-prioritize and move to another quarter or below the line.
A few months…

How do we cultivate and foster Mindfulness at work, one day at a time?
Imagine a world where we wake up every morning and say, “Hey, Good Morning! I want to be mindful at work today” and see where it goes and make a conscious choice every moment of the day.
When I joined this leadership role in Sept 2020, I didn’t really know how to bring mindfulness and meditation into my day-to-day until I came across Wise@Work.
I’ve been learning about mindfulness for over the past year. …
In my self-reflection ride with Christine, she shared the most beautiful narrative and I am sharing it with you. Because there is power in the numbers: (no, not the metrics) in us as a collective amplifying self-care. #sharingiscaring
Think about the firefly at the edge of our peripheral vision. Pay attention and capture it, pin it on paper and really see what it is!
What are your fireflies? Every time you see one, pin it on paper, write it down. And discover what you are truly capable of.
What habits do you want to drop and what habits do you…
It’s been a year navigating the emotional journey and learning that there are more emotions than just crying. And how to accept the now, be fully present, and not worry about the past or the future (things I don’t control).
And to start, let me introduce you to my council, not just the one voice, but the council in my head.
At first, I thought there was only one inner voice. The one that challenged me every day in every decision. But now I see that as a council, not one but many voices in its own way.
It’s painful to see the divide amongst the countries in the world.
Last year was supposed to be our reset, our chance to show true compassion and show that we care. But we still have a divide between us around the world.
There isn’t anyone in this world…
The first time I heard the word equanimity was in a meditation session. It piqued my interest. I don’t think I’ve ever heard this word or referenced it before.
Here is a simple definition,
mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation.
Example: “she accepted both the good and the bad with equanimity”
When we walk into a meeting or for now join a video conferencing meeting with stakeholders.
Being new in the team, I don’t know much about the past and come with the least bias.
Some meetings can be fun, joyful and pleasant…
It’s a beautiful day. Isn’t it amazing what the mind can do? You won’t believe it but I woke up exactly at 5:21 am without the alarm.
You are wondering 5:21? Well, that’s what I have as set for my alarm on weekdays (5.21 is my birthday).
Now that was a beautiful gesture of the mind and I decided to wake up and start my beautiful day with a smile.
These routines and habits that we’ve built in our mind can be so powerful that we just don’t see it sometimes. That is the beauty of the mind. If you…
