Ann is a Silicon Valley veteran and speaker with 15 years of experience as the Executive Business Partner for Jeff Bezos, Founder, and CEO of Amazon, and Eric Schmidt, CEO/Executive Chairman of Google.
Her very first job was at 16 when she worked at a startup in Redmond, Washington called MusicWare – back when no one knew what a startup was. Growing up in Seattle during the original dotcom boom, surrounded by companies like Microsoft, Amazon, and Starbucks, was a master class in innovation and it changed the course of her life.
Ann now works as a consultant and speaker applying the lessons of innovation, ambition, growth at scale, and forward-thinking leadership that she learned at Amazon and Google to help businesses expand and individual careers grow.
Ann Hiatt has a number of keynote topics for corporate events including –
Lessons in Innovation from Silicon Valley Elite
In this session, you will learn how to maximize your potential, expand your skills, create a deeper relationship with your executive, and make your role even more impactful through executive-level communication, problem-solving, collaboration, and passion. Ann will share these business lessons through captivating stories of things she’s learned (often the hard way) directly from the Silicon Valley elite she has supported for the past 15 years.
Grit, Reinvention and Pivoting for Success
As the right hand for some of the most powerful CEOs (Jeff Bezos -CEO, Amazon, and Eric Schmidt – CEO, Google) Ann has witnessed what it takes to endure the relentless process of learning, pivoting, and surviving while under extreme scrutiny. In this talk, you will learn the keys to success through grit, reinvention, and pivoting at the right times.
The “celebrity CEO” trend has set a daunting spotlight for executives at all levels where it feels like everyone is watching your every move and not allowing for iterative learning or experimentation. We all need to develop agile strategies, push through unexpected pain points, and continue to learn and grow personally while maintaining authority. This talk will explore the many ways in which you can use that spotlight to empower both you and your workforce to think creatively and get results.
