what’s new?

It takes thirty-five minutes and includes five fun, “what would you do?” case studies whose results will surprise you.

ABout Me

As the former VP of Product at Netflix, Chief Product Officer at Chegg, SVP Product at The Learning Company, and a Producer at Electronic Arts, I have lots of experience building world-class products, teams, and companies.

Today, I am an adviser to consumer tech product leaders in San Francisco, Boston, NYC, and Salt Lake City.  I also teach a graduate-level entrepreneurship course at Stanford.

Every six months I co-host an invite-only 130-person Product Leader Summit.  The next one is in Redwood City, CA on 9/19/2019.

My wife, Kristen Hege, is a physician/scientist working to cure cancer, my daughter Kelsey, lives in Boston (and follows Mom's career path) while daughter Brit, a senior at Colby College, has career aspirations more like mine. (Read more about Brit here.)
