What makes a leader?Wed 25 October 17
14:40 - 15:00
As a designer turned business leader, Hannah Donovan will discuss the moment that defines true leadership and more importantly, what to do when it shows up for you. Whether you're leading yourself to your next career goal or leading your team through a challenge, this talk explains "getting on your brink" as a leader, and will help you navigate the inevitable twists and turns of deciding to level up.
If you've been there once already, this will (hopefully) be funny and heartwarming because none of us are alone; if you have yet to experience this moment then come get the key; and if you currently feel like you're on your brink – this talk is 100% for you!
About Hannah Donovan
Hannah Donovan likes fun, and she’s been putting this to work making digital products in music and entertainment tech for over the last decade.
Hannah was the General Manager at Vine, led the team and product at Drip (a music start-up acquired by Kickstarter), was VP Design at Ripcord (a product incubator funded by MTV), co-founded the song-sharing service This Is My Jam which was incubated by The Echo Nest (now part of Spotify), and was part of the original leadership team at music service Last.fm (acquired by CBS) where she led design.
She’s addressed audiences across the world, speaking for conferences, universities and companies. Her work and words have been featured in media such as the Guardian, New York Times, Forbes, Variety, and the Today Show.
She’s a classically trained cellist who loves hip-hop, as well as a classically trained graphic designer who loves too many patterns at once. She also loves tigers, but isn't classically trained to handle them. Yet.
