Product Marketing Life | Collette Johnson, Redgate Software

Redgate Software’s Product Marketing Strategist and PMA ambassador Collette Johnson talks to us all about making mistakes and learning from them, how important she thinks it is to own our mistakes and hold our hands up, how she’s proud of her past mess-ups and how they’ve helped her career to date, plus the lessons startups and big organizations can learn from each other, her beliefs on where the industry as whole needs to change and heaps more.


"I think a lot of people see us as an extension of the marketing team. So they see us as marketers, what I think people don't see is the work we do with the sales team. I see myself as an extension of the sales team, I'm working on helping them to make sure that they can sell the product, understand the product, that they have the right materials. And I really want them to be successful."
