It’s time to introduce you all to another member of the customer team. Say hello to Sharon Kalewski, who is ProdPad’s first Solution Consultant. The lovely Sharon works with potential ProdPad customers who are interested in using our product management tool. Be sure to look out for Sharon this fall, she’ll be out and about at loads of product-focused events, including this year’s Mind the Product conference in London.
Let’s dive right in and see what she has to say:
Explain what you do
I’m a Solution Consultant. My job is to work with potential customers and help them decide whether (or not) ProdPad is right for them. I make sure they have everything they need in order to make a decision, I show them examples of what the tool can do and I answer any questions they might have.
What did you do before ProdPad?
My background is in technology sales. I’ve also worked in marketing too. But, right before joining ProdPad, I took a couple of years out and travelled.
What’s great about working at ProdPad?
I love the culture at ProdPad. Above anything, it’s such a caring and safe team to be part of. We celebrate success and learn a lot, even when things might not go as well as we’d have liked.
Favourite productivity app?
Can I say ProdPad? We use it to manage all our company activities too. I think it’s brilliant for showing transparency across the whole company. I can see what ideas the dev team are working on, planned marketing campaigns, and the company roadmap – I can see the exciting plans, right there and in front of me.
Favourite time-wasting app?
WhatsApp. That’s where I get to see pictures of my gorgeous Brazilian grandson.
Most famous person you’ve ever met?
I saw Kasabian’s Serge and Tom in the departure lounge at Warsaw Airport. I thought they’d be up front in Business Class but they actually sat in the row behind us.
Puppies or kittens?
Most definitely puppies. I love taking my ‘borrowed’ doggies, Suggs and Bertie, out for walks.
I love to get my boots on and go for a long walk.
Fun fact about you?
I know this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I’ve been known to do walks as long as 100km.
