About the speaker

This person is speaking at this event.
Leslie Feinzaig

Sr Prod Mgr, Microsoft

Leslie is a seasoned product manager with a penchant – and a preference – for broad, meaty roles and difficult, ambiguous problems. She is currently working on growth strategy, product planning and business development at Kinect for Windows, a small group within Microsoft that aims to create a future where there is a Kinect on every screen – not just in your living room. Prior to Kinect, Leslie led product planning efforts for MSN, Microsoft's online news and entertainment portal with more than 500MM unique users and $1B in annual revenues.

Earlier in her career, Leslie spent time in strategy consulting at Innosight, a boutique firm founded by ‘The Innovator's Dilemma' author Clayton Christensen. She also worked in the consumer goods industry and launched a retail business in her home country of Costa Rica.

Leslie has an MBA from Harvard and a BSc from the London School of Economics.
