Product Leaders Weekend 2019



With nearly 10 years experience of leading and developing product teams across FutureLearn, The Guardian and Comic Relief, Tess is adept at understanding people and team dynamics. This, alongside her passion for diversity & inclusion issues, lead her to move from product management to becoming Director of People and Culture in her most recent role.

She has recently left FutureLearn to pursue a freelance career in helping a wider range of companies and non-profit communities to build inclusive teams and organisations where individuals are empowered to be the best they can be.
