The Chief HR Officer for Uber, an MBA-holding Olympic medalist, and a senior exec with one of the country’s largest nonprofits will take the stage to talk about the new world of business at this year’s Central Coast Business Symposium, hosted by Andre, Morris & Buttery, Thursday June 14.

The 10th annual event, taking place from 2:30-5:30 p.m. at the Clark Center in Arroyo Grande, allows local leaders to gather and explore new ideas for improving our businesses and the community.

This year, Liane Hornsby, Senior VP and Chief People Officer for Uber, will discuss the realities of HR in a candid, “fireside chat”-style conversation with AMB’s Kathy Eppright. Lynda Gonzales-Chavez, Senior VP/Chief Diversity Officer for the YMCA of the USA will share her real-world insight on the changing face of business. And Lauren Gibbs, who left her MBA-boosted sales career to pursue—and win—a 2018 silver medal as a member of the US Women’s Olympic bobsled team, will talk about the similarities between business and bobsled competition.

“Our tenth anniversary event called for a very special program,” said event organizer Mike Gibson. “We are excited to have the help of three amazing speakers whose perspectives and expertise assure a fabulous, informative afternoon.”
