Elin - Thank you very much! Yes, I do feel I'm very happy and humbled for receiving this award.

What would you like to say to a future PM who might be running for this award?

What I think is really important as a product manager is to keep the engagement with the customer and to make sure that you don’t only get focused on the products but actually really make sure that you understand what the product does for your customer and what the customer data problems are.

How will you be celebrating?

I will be celebrating with some nice food here (conference). But I will actually be celebrating with my family. I feel really proud. It is a really nice rewarding feeling.
