Speaker: Alyce Erikson

Alyce Erikson: Hi there my name is Alyce Erikson and I lead Product Marketing for Linkedin Marketing Solutions in Asia Pacific and I'm based in Singapore.

What does this Product Marketing Award mean to you?

Alyce Erikson: The Rising Star MVP Award means two really important things for me. The first is around the growth that's been and through my own journey being nontraditional to get to product marketing to hopefully inspire others that the route to product marketing isn't that clear. There are so many ways to get here that product marketers were not born. We grow and were made over time. And the second is around the growth to come, recognizing that product marketing is such a huge function. There is so much to learn. And winning this award validates for me that I still have a lot to learn and that is unbelievably exciting to know. It's unbelievably exciting to know that my peers and my colleagues see that as well. And so when I think about this award it really means growth. The growth that's been and the growth has to come.

Is there anyone you would like to thank?

Alyce Erikson: I'd like to say a special thank you to my colleagues and peers who spent the time to nominate me. It means so much that you invested that time to put pen to paper or finger to keyboard and sharing your thoughts with the product marketing community. I also want to share a special thank you to a number of special people in my life. My manager, Nico Lutkins my first manager who hired me as a product marketer, Danielle Uskovic, Ashley Paczolt my longest mentor, Jennifer Bunting the PMM who started it all by inspiring me with what her role and passion is for product marketing. Peter Hubert, the person who gave me and invested in me, the professional skills that I still carry today. To the PMM partners. Those are LinkedIn that I mentor for Future PMMs. I'm thanking you because you also teach me to be a better PMM. And lastly to my partner Mitchell Cormack Mitch, you're part of the reason I'm here purely because you are my biggest fan. You support me every day and it's that support that helps me be a better person, a better professional. And I am so grateful that you offer it every day in your special way. Thank you so much
