Onkar Singh Lohtham
Product Coach and Lead Trainer at Digital Skills Mastery (DSM)
I am Onkar, your product coach and lead trainer at Digital Skills Mastery (DSM) – an academy focussed on training digital professionals like you. I am super excited to have you here. My motto is to help you take your digital career to the next level.
For over 19 years, I have worked with organisations across the globe to build multimillion-pound products and services. I have taken on many different roles – from software engineer and business analyst, to product manager and CPO – until I decided with my colleague Himani to start both Digital Skills Mastery (DSM) and Product Hub Hob (PHH). DSM is our global training & coaching academy specialising in digital skills, while PHH is London-based digital product management consultancy.
All this experience informs my understanding of the day-to-day issues you, as digital professionals, encounter in your B2B, B2C and start-up roles. The proprietary models, tools and techniques you will learn on the training programme are all based on real-life case studies from over 20 different high-profile projects I have worked on during my career.
If you are interested, I will be more than happy to share the success blueprint on the practical implementation techniques around product road maps, OKRs, commercial strategies, managing complex backlogs, leading multi-product agile teams and more.
I have combined the ‘Art’ and ‘Science’ elements of product management in our training programmes to help digital professionals like you excel at their work. We implement the same models and tools in product consultancy work with our clients.
My client base ranges from New York to Delhi and Hong Kong to Amsterdam. This has given me great insight into multi-location Agile team-working best practice, something which is now woven into the framework of this programme. I have also been lucky enough to work across a wide number of domains and disciplines, so don’t hold back when it comes to questions. My knowledge covers publishing, financial services, fashion, government services, commodities, market research, online recruitment and digital.
I have a Bachelors in Engineering (Distinction, India) and a Masters in Business Management (Distinction, UK). I am also a qualified leadership coach, conduct training sessions in the UK, US, Germany and India, speak at Agile events and regularly blog on product management. I look forward to working with you.
Product Coach and Trainer at Digital Skills Mastery (DSM)
Lovely to see you here. I am Himani, your product coach and trainer at Digital Skills Mastery. At DSM, we offer actionable resources, training programmes, and personalised coaching to enable you to achieve your desired career growth.
In my 15 years as a digital product professional, I have worked in a variety of different roles including business analyst, product owner, product consultant and head of product, all of which helps me understand your needs and workplace issues.
During this time, I have acquired a comprehensive understanding of the roles and responsibilities shared among diverse teams in multi-locations, having led international set-ups in the UK, US, Ireland, Hong Kong, India and Switzerland. At the DSM academy, I will share this workplace experience with you. It will cover delivering multimillion-pound digital products from strategy to launch, as well as advising start-up founders, CEOs and CTOs in executing digital product strategy.
In 2013, after over eight years in the corporate sphere, I started Product Hub Hob (PHH), the digital product management consultancy I run with Onkar in London. I lead the sales, marketing, and customer service side of our businesses, along with extensively doing content research & course creation work with Onkar. I cannot do this alone and rely on my team to help me out.
I believe a hands-on approach is beneficial in any workplace environment. That’s why it’s one of the cornerstones of our training approach and key to the skillset you will advance with from the DSM academy. Nothing beats the feeling of being skilled at something that helps you achieve your goals.
My goal is to help you maximise your potential by crafting a product management success blueprint while you train with us. I am an Electronics & Communication engineer (BIT Mesra, India), MBA graduate (SCMHRD, India) and NLP coach (UK).
I look forward to connecting with you.
