Business Leader talks to Jeff Bezos’ right hand woman

Can you imagine sitting one desk over from Amazon Founder, Jeff Bezos? What about being the former Executive Business Partner to Google CEO, Eric Schmidt? Or touring the world with high-ranking Google executive and business icon Marissa Mayer? Ann Hiatt has worked with all of these legends of business, and her latest book catalogues the lessons she learnt from them.

Ann Hiatt’s very first job was at 16 years of age, when she worked at a start-up in Redmond, Washington called MusicWare – back when no one knew what a start-up was. Growing up in Seattle during the original dot-com boom, she was surrounded by companies like Microsoft, Amazon, and Starbucks, who provided a master class in innovation and it changed the course of her life.

Ann is a sought-after international speaker, angel investor and sits on several boards in the UK. Ann has recently relocated from Silicon Valley to Europe and brings with her a unique perspective on what it takes to succeed in business today.
