About this Event

Future of Work Speaker Series: Konval Matin, Chief of Staff to the Chief Product Officer | Shopify

Agenda:

7:30am-8:00am: Coffee Bar and Mingling

8:00am-9am: Talk and Q & A

For eight years, Konval Matin has helped develop and define a corporate culture that has helped make Shopify a leading global e-commerce platform. As our inaugural Future of Work speaker, Konval will share insights into how to build a company that not just embraces change but thrives in it. Digging into what “culture eats strategy for breakfast” really means, she will explore the systems-based work that goes into building an organization with results-driven, customer-focused and highly engaged teams.

Bio:

Konval is Chief of Staff to Shopify’s Chief Product Officer (CPO). In addition to acting as a trusted advisor to the CPO, she’s a strategic partner in defining product strategies across the company to meet merchant, partner, and buyer needs both up and down market. She works closely with executive leaders to align on the highest priority products and to ensure roadmaps are clearly defined, unblocked, and on track. Previously, she was Director of Culture and Talent Development, defining and building Shopify’s culture as it scaled from 100 to 4000+ employees across the globe. Her team was responsible for designing an environment where employees at all levels were enabled to do their best work and make commerce better for everyone.

Konval has a Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing and International Business from Carleton University. An avid hiker and nature lover, she’s scaled hundreds of kilometers on mountains in four continents, and just launched her own shop, TreesNotPeople, that plants a tree for every product sold.

About the Future of Work Speaker Series

Technology, competition and the ever-accelerating pace of business are driving organizations to think differently about how they build, unite and inspire their teams. The Future of Work Speaker Series is a forum for sharing real-world lessons learned and best practices to help CEOs, CFOs and HR directors transform abstract concepts into practical plans for attracting, retaining and staying aligned with top talent.

Each Speaker Series event will be held at the brand-new, stunningly designed Algonquin College Corporate Learning Centre in downtown Ottawa.
