Product Led Growth with Jessica Webb, Product Marketing Senior Team Lead at Trello (Atlassian)

In this week’s episode we’re continuing to explore the question - what is the role of product marketing in a company who focuses on PLG and self-service? It’s very likely that PLG will be the future of how we do business and I think it’s a huge learning opportunity for the craft of PMM. Tune in to hear more about what this means and how your team can adapt to this new go-to-market model.
