And that is a competitive advantage in the VUCA environment we live in.

Sumit combines his experiences as a techie, engineer, 3x entrepreneur, leader in companies like Yahoo and Booking.com, and as a poet and photographer – to help leaders merge the science of doing business with the art of leadership. He lives with his wife & son in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

I was blown away by the results! I was able to see the outcome of leveling up week-over-week. The Outpace Guided Sprint is more impactful than results from the purely Socratic method used in coaching elsewhere.

Monil Shah
Product Lead — Growth, Clover

It was invaluable for me to get another perspective on my approaches & challenges and exchange ideas to come to an outcome together with my coach.

Alexandra Denisova
Director of Product, UXCam

Access to content and coaching allowed me to level up from focusing on implementation, to being able to contribute to the company's overall product strategy.

Sadiq Saleh
Senior Product Manager, Clinia

“The in-depth analysis Outpace performed on my approach to product coupled with live 1-1 discussions was a powerful combination that really unlocked massive personal growth. Shortly after the program I was promoted from IC to manager due in no small part to the insights, guidance and areas of opportunity that my coach was able to surface in our sessions.”
