#17: In this episode, Axel chats with Rhiannon White, who's CPO at Clue, a female-founded, female-led period tracking and reproductive health app for women and people with cycles worldwide.

We cover the topic of driving product based on business and product outcomes, the importance of having a strong understanding of business model and how to leverage financial understanding to drive decision-making for growth.

Rhiannon has a wide range of experience from multiple industries across the globe. After four years working in politics, becoming Director of Communications and Research for former New Zealand Prime Minister John Key, she then went on to work in the media field for companies including the BBC in London and Shazam in Silicon Valley, and more recently was the Chief Product Officer for Vend where she was part of the team that led the exit.
