Elizabeth GriffithsI have 15 years’ experience supporting teams to build digital products and websites. Currently, I’m a Senior Product Manager at hipages building a new product in partnership with the NSW Department of Education to make it easier for tradies to access jobs at public schools.

I’m passionate about using data to inform product strategies and decisions that deliver customer value and achieve business goals. I also think it’s important to motivate teams by enabling their autonomy through communicating business goals and ensuring the team understands the ‘why’ so that they have a clear purpose.

I enjoy meeting other product people and place a lot of value on the product community we’ve built together in Sydney. l led Women in Product (now Product Women) for 1.5 years and was recognised as a 2018 Leading Women in Product for building the new community of 900+ people in 18 months.

Previously, she owned machine-learning, mobile and collaboration products at Ansarada, and online tax forms for businesses at MYOB.

Rebecca Cooper

Group Product Manager, SafetyCulture

Rebecca CooperI’m a Group Product Manager at SafetyCulture looking after Inspections within iAuditor, SafetyCulture’s flagship product. My product management career has been a whirlwind, having started only 3.5 years ago as an Associate Product Manager.

Prior to being a Product Manager I worked in Customer Support for an Australian tech company named Ansarada where I found my love and passion for working in technology. It was fascinating to learn all about software development and when meeting Ansarada’s first Head of Product, I knew I wanted to be a Product Manager too. My life before Tech was in the Hotel Industry where I strived to be a Hotel Manager creating amazing experience for guests and their families. It’s funny in retrospect to see the parallels in the careers I’ve chosen. From the desire to create amazing holiday experiences for hotel guests to the passion for building incredible life-changing software for customers.
