The Chief HR Officer for Uber, an MBA-holding Olympic medalist, and a senior exec with one of the country’s largest nonprofits took to the stage to talk about the workplace and the workforce of the future at this year’s Central Coast Business Symposium, hosted by Andre, Morris & Buttery in June.

Local leaders gathered and explored new ideas for improving our businesses and the community at AMB’s 10th annual event.

This year, Liane Hornsey, Senior VP and Chief People Officer for Uber, discussed 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 shared 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, talked about the similarities between business and bobsled competition.

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

The 10th Annual Central Coast Business Symposium was presented in partnership with: Coastal Repographic Services (CRS), Thoma Electric, Morris & Garritano, Glenn Burdette, AMF Media Group, Pacific Premier Bank, and Presqu’ile Winery with a special thanks to The SLO County Y.
