Casey Winters, who previously worked with growth optimization on Pinterest, and who when we met last winter was Growth Advisor in Residence at the VC company Greylock Partners (as a consultant). We saw Casey present her talk “Onboarding Comes First: The Product-Driven Retention Strategies That Make All the Difference” during the 2017 Growth Conference in San Francisco. We also got an interview with him afterwards. He talks about his experience with “Growth” in large companies and Pinterest and emphasizes that “Growth” is still at an early stage in its development. We touch on Change Management, outsourcing of growth and tips.
