I help tech companies create great products, get noticed & take market share
Hi, I’m Hamish — a startup/scale-up tech company specialist based in Brisbane, Australia with over 15 years’ experience in B2B and enterprise product management, marketing and commercial strategy.
What I do
I’ve worked with CEOs, developers, designers, users, clients and investors since the late 2000s in a variety of roles and situations. In that time, I’ve found I’m good at getting up to speed quickly and delivering measurable results in two areas.
Product Strategy & Management
I work with tech company founders and early stage teams to assess and validate the market, identify and test opportunities, establish a clear product vision, and plot an actionable path to getting products in market, in use and generating revenue.
