My conversation with Nir was not only informative, but also thought-provoking, inspiring, and easy to follow. While I only spent half an hour talking with Nir, I truly felt that I better understood the fundamental value of product managers and how product development works both on a high-level and person-level in big tech. Thank you for giving me the chance to learn from your experience!
