In 2010, Erica Davis became the first female paraplegic to reach the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. As a climb team member, and executive producer of the documentary, Through the Roof, Derek Gates knows what it took to get her there. Now, as a product manager for Capital One, he uses many of the same tactics to create experiences that inspire and change customers' lives. His talk will delve into why persistence matters in product management.
