It was a sad day when I heard that Fogus was leaving Relevance, even if it was for a pretty good reason. So when Kovas Boguta asked if we were going to have him on the podcast to share his experiences at the company, I thought, "Well, of course we are. Why didn't I think of that?"
As always, it was a pleasure to speak with Fogus. We had a chance to talk about what he thought Relevance does well, and more importantly, where he thinks we could do better. As a special treat he also shared with us an exciting project he's working on... we thank him for choosing the podcast to announce it! Enjoy the episode!
