She has 15 years experience working in product management and worked with everything from Fortune 500 behemoths to fast-growing Inc 5000 startups.
Along the way, Özlem has engaged with all sorts of organisational cultures and loves helping them learn and improve.

When she’s not travelling around the world consulting, teaching and speaking, she likes reading and going surfing. Once a year, for some unknown reason, she is glued to the Eurovision Song Contest.
Most of all though, she loves bringing people together and helping them change the way they work – so they love what they do.
