Leadership Lessons from Silicon Valley

  • Leadership insights from inside Google and Apple
  • Find out how to create and coach higher performing teams
  • Build trust and inspire personal growth at all levels

Eric Schmidt reveals the story behind Silicon Valley’s ‘secret coach’. Bill Campbell was the force behind such great companies as Google, Apple and Intuit, and the man who worked behind the scenes (and always out of the spotlight) mentoring business leaders, including Steve Jobs, Larry Page and Eric Schmidt himself to create over a trillion dollars in market value.

Coach Bill, as he was fondly known, built trusting relationships, fostered personal growth (even in those at the pinnacle of their careers); inspired courage, and resolved simmering tensions that inevitably arise in fast-moving environments.

Eric will share Bill's principles and offer a blueprint for forward-thinking business leaders, managers and future coaches that will help them create higher performing and faster moving cultures, teams, and more humane and successful companies.
