Speaker: Amit Alagh
Amit Alagh: Hello everybody. My name is Amit Alagh and I'm a senior product marketing manager at LexisNexis and winner of this year's Product Marketing Newcomer of the Year Award.
What does this Product Marketing Award mean to you?
Amit Alagh: I'm honored and proud to be awarded Product Marketing Newcomer of the Year. The award is a testament that hard work and continued professional development payoff. Whilst I've been recognized as the overall category winner for 2021, I'd like to pay homage to the other nominees as they are equally worthy contenders. I'd also like this award to serve as inspiration to anyone out there told that they can't do it. Let this award be a testament that, through hard work, grit and determination, and with the support of the Product Marketing Alliance, the world is your oyster.
Is there anyone you would like to thank?
Amit Alagh: I'd like to begin by saying thank you to friends and family who gave me their unwavering support as I transitioned from product management to product marketing. I'd also like to thank the many colleagues, bosses and mentors who discovered early on that I had a talent and passion for our marketing and gave me side projects to hone my craft. Last but not least, I'd like to say thanks to Richard King Bryony Pearce and Robyn Leach for building this fantastic world class product marketing community who have been so welcoming to newcomers like myself.
