There are no secrets to growth and there aren't any hacks. In this talk, I try to walk through some stories from LinkedIn and Twitter to share how we combined creative product ideas with data analysis and understanding to drive meaningful and sustained growth. And I present some of the frameworks we use to better understand and track growth and engagement over time.

These are the slides I use to present, so they probably don't make much sense standalone. But if you have seen the talk, hopefully a good refresher. Thank you!
