How Being a Customer Advisory Board Member Can Ignite Your Product Career

How to Identify Rockstar Product Professionals During an Interview

(This episode of the Pragmatic Live Podcast was captured during one of our recent Product Chat webinars)
 
Companies know that learning more about their customers is the best way to improve their products. But is the research influencing meaningful change? More often than not, the answer is no.
 
While many mediums facilitate customer engagement, this work only results in tactical, user-level augmentations that have a minor impact. Thankfully, there’s a better strategy and that is a well-run Customer Advisory Board (CAB). Launching a CAB not only leads to significant product enhancements but can also uncover new solutions that lead to substantial revenue gains. But why should you be a member of a CAB? 
 
Rob Jensen, VP of Marketing for Ignite, and learn how a CAB is an effective career-building opportunity for product managers and product marketing managers who serve on them. Not only do members interact with their best customers, but they are also presenting product plans and roadmaps in front of their company executives who otherwise may not be aware of their skills and contribution to the company.
