Speaker

Benoit Terpereau

VP Product at Deezer. Worked as Product Director at Enablon and CTO at MyLittleParis.

“As a trained software engineer, I’m not used to talk to people”, Benoit says jokingly about himself. So to become a product manager nine years ago, he had to get out of his comfort zone to put users at the center of what he does and build products that provide value. As VP Product at Deezer he now navigates the complex requirements of the music industry, while making sure that the users have a seamless experience.
