Thanks everyone who attended this webcast from the Association of International Product Marketing and Management. This presentation describes why you should consider obtaining an AIPMM certification.

The AIPMM is the hub of all things product management. It is where product professionals go for answers. With members in over 65 countries, it is the worldwide certifying body of product team professionals.

It is the world's largest professional organization of product managers, brand managers, product marketing managers and other product team professionals who are responsible for guiding their organizations, or clients, through a constantly changing business landscape.

AIPMM's certification programs are internationally recognized because they allow product professionals to demonstrate their expertise and provide corporate members an assurance that their product management and marketing teams are operating at a high competency level.

I have over 15 years of experience building and directing high performing cross-functional product teams and transforming products to create wealth for technology-based, product-driven companies. I have launched over 30 products and solutions that resulted in over $200M of achieved global sales revenue. I provide services as a consultant, contractor, coach, or trainer to organizations that need to create value-added products that delight customers and effectively market them to create demand.

Contact me for information about AIPMM membership, or product management and marketing training courses in your area.

Let me know how I can help you grow your technology-based business by implementing a product and innovation strategy and process or building a high performing product management team to create new revenue streams using a sustainable approach.

Contact me if you are interested in setting up a private presentation regarding this or related topics for executives and senior managers within your company.

Feel free to like this if you enjoy the content. I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Regards,
Hector Del Castillo
