Great Questions and Insights

Must-listen for PM’s

6 stars!!! If you are a PM looking to hone your craft or an aspiring PM, this podcast is for you. Not only will you walk away from every episode with practical PM advice, but you’ll also be left with thought-provoking questions that will help you reflect on how you can be a better collaborator and colleague. Maggie’s candor and curiosity consistently shines and I hope the podcast continues for years to come.
