Innovation While in the Spotlight - a Keynote with Ann Hiatt

Published on Monday, 10th August 2020

It's almost two years since Ann Hiatt delivered her first Keynote for Bristol Media and, given that she's one of the most popular speakers we've hosted in the last few years, we're delighted that she's back.

The Coronavirus has thrown us all into a period of rapid reinvention where we need to reinvent ourselves, our companies and our business models quickly just to survive. As leaders you are having to pivot and make critical decisions all without an understanding of where the finish line might lie and when we will find a new-normal.

Ann has worked directly for three of the most powerful tech CEOs of our lifetime at Amazon and Google and she has witnessed their actual paths to greatness - which were far less linear than they appear in retrospect. The common denominator between these powerhouse CEOs is that they, just like Olympic athletes, never stop training, learning and improving.

Join us on Wednesday 12th August (12.30 - 1.30pm) when Ann will break down their formulas for learning while in the spotlight in a way that increases your authority and respect while demonstrating humility and willingness to learn which are critical during these periods of ambiguity. In this session you will learn how to increase your influence, power and legacy through learning and stop feeling so lonely at the top. 

To Book

Booking is via Eventbrite - click here to book your place.  We will send the Zoom link nearer the time.

This is a free event for Bristol Media members although we’d encourage our members to make a donation if they are in a position to do so.   There is a charge of £20+VAT for non-members.

Whilst some of our members have been unaffected by COVID-19, we recognise for others this is still challenging business climate so we want to do what we can to support. As many will know, Bristol Media operates as a not-for-profit Community Interest Company and revenue comes solely from membership fees and events. We receive no other funding or financial support. We’re hopeful that the donation approach will allow all members to continue accessing our events whatever their financial situation whilst also allowing us to replace some of the revenue we’ve lost over recent months. All our speakers give their time and expertise voluntarily. Thank you for your continued backing and we hope that you’ll be able to support this approach and look forward to being able to deliver a series of worthwhile events that our members enjoy and importantly find beneficial to their businesses.
