Event description

Description

Abigail Posner, head of strategy for Google’s Brand Unit, comes to CU Boulder to share her path in advertising, product development, technology, neuroscience and anthropology, which has led her to a unique method for tapping our innate creativity to yield profound changes as a leader and an individual.

With a degree in social anthropology from Harvard University, she looks at business and technology through a humanistic lens, bringing a fresh perspective to corporate culture, product development, branding and marketing.

Posner’s work stimulates organizations to adopt new cultures and modes of behavior. She challenges the cultural conversations around beauty and motivates audiences to reexamine themselves.

Before joining Google, Posner was executive vice president, strategy director at Publicis New York, and head of strategic planning at DDB New York. She blogs regularly on beauty in our culture and has published articles on marketing, digital culture and beauty.

The annual Leo Hill Leadership Speaker Series, sponsored by the Newton Chair in Leadership, exposes students, faculty/staff and the community to recognized leaders in multiple fields. Past speakers include Former Secretary of Defense Dr. Robert Gates and the first woman of color to go into space Dr. Mae Jemison.
