ESTEEM provided me an invaluable set of skills and mental models that I attribute much of my professional success to. I work in a highly technical role but my ability to think about how business problems can be solved with analytical approaches and machine learning has set me apart from other techies. I have risen quickly in my organization and I now lead the global Data Science practice for my firm of 2500+ people. ESTEEM's focus on human centered design, customer development, finance, scaling management practices and startup marketing have been crucial to my success.
