Can you give us a quick background about yourself?
I am the CEO of SUPER*MEGA*BOSS, a manager training company using short video, virtual, and in-person training to build better bosses. Over the last 20 years, I have focused on developing leaders of people with Fortune 500 companies.
SUPER*MEGA*BOSS takes neuroscience, weirdness, and habit formation to approach traditional manager training (dull) with a new approach (fun!).I am also an adventurer and recently published Wild Success: 7 Key Lessons Business Leaders Can Learn from Extreme Adventurers. I'm currently based in San Jose, CA.
Amy's work is incredibly inspiring. She gives speeches to the world's top companies, and wows her audience with interactive presentations and insights. You can tune in here
