Today, Ammar Jawad is a successful Product Manager at Expedia Group in London, where he is in charge of managing their artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities. However, his journey to success was not an easy one. In just five years Ammar transformed himself from unemployed and struggling in Denmark to Lead Product Manager at Radiant Worlds in Warwickshire, United Kingdom. His compelling story makes him an engaging speaker, who delivers his talks with compassion and empathy. Ammar describes himself as a hybrid of a Product Manager and a Data Scientist who undertakes projects with Machine Learning in mind. He believes in championing the voice of users by incorporating machine learning and data science to inform the product roadmap. As well as relying on data science Ammar often incorporates his intuition into decision making processes when transforming departments. In 2010, Ammar’s team received an 'Innovative solutions and Problem Solving Skills' award by The Danish Ministry of Social Affairs, Children and Integration. The project provides practical and innovative solutions which help to increase the acquisition and retention of immigrants for universities in Denmark.
