Productized Podcast — Agnes Casenave — AI as a Driver for a Successful Future Generation

Recently we’ve had the great pleasure of chatting with Agnes Casenave, the Principal Product Manager at Kpler and we’d like to tell you about it.

Main topics covered:

👨‍🏫 The importance of STEAM areas in the future of tech companies

🚀 Changing from Sofware Engineering to Product Management

🚢 Kpler’s impact on the commodities industry

🔥 AI as a driver for a successful future generation

When Agnes started her career as a software engineer, instead of just focusing on coding she was always aiming to understand what value the end result of her work will bring to the user. This was the key influence behind her goal of becoming a product manager. Was her career choice an easy one? How does she think the emergence of Kpler revolutionised the commodities industry? How can AI influence the next generations?
