Session: The Big Dive from Tech Trainer to Product Owner
The story of a technical trainer, who traveled the world, coaching engineers and empowering them to be better professionals, while collecting valuable product feedback from different user roles and cultures from Madrid to Singapore, from Oslo to Hong Kong. The environment, people culture, leaders and friends she met at Milestone inspired her to open to the opportunity to change her career.
That made her study hard, cooperate with people who were more than willing to share their experiences and help her grow. As a result, she was juggling two positions at once while transitioning to the Product Owner role.
At the end of the day, Gergana became an integral part of two feature teams, who quickly saw a trusted advisor in her.

I am an engineer who took the step to make a career change - from designing and delivering technical trainings to being a Product Owner in a software development company. I am a kid who wanted to be an Astronaut, but became a SCUBA Diver, which is quite close.
