Ready for another healthy dose of product knowledge? Great, because in this episode we got the chance to chat with Namrata Sarmah, Chief Product Officer at iPlato Healthcare, about her journey to becoming a CPO, why it’s important to challenge the status quo as a PM, and why she’s passionate about diversity in product.

We also explored Namrata’s inspiration for returning to healthcare, her role at myGP and how the company is growing into a product-led org.

Key talking points:

  • When you get too comfortable in a job - maybe it's time to join a startup!
  • Why product teams are uniquely positioned to make a big impact for diversity and inclusion.
  • How ‘lovely accidents’ encompassed an incredible 10-year journey from PM to CPO. 😄
