Hello, I'm Patrick Cormier

Product Specialist

Let's meet & work together
introduction

Introduction

For over ten years, I explored different industries with ease, understanding the many challenges they are facing. Using the knowledge acquired and keeping the customer in mind, I create & grow products that lead their markets and generates revenue for the companies hiring me.

Defining the right product is nothing without constant & efficient delivery, that’s where my sixth sense on team unicity & focus comes along. Providing context & vision for the engineering team is one of my main strength.

Products are nothing without the support of the Business Development team, being a talented presenter and teacher, I strive in providing training and developing business documentation and coaching material to help and support an organization in growing his position on the market.

Listening & understanding clients throughout workshop and interviews is a strength that over time allowed me to build features that tackle pain points lived by our customers.
