Hello Seattle Girl Geeks!
Amazon.com will be sponsoring sweet #16 for our girl geek dinner community on Thursday, August 23, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Our event will be held in their new urban South Lake Union campus. If you haven’t been yet, it’s about time to check out South Lake Union and experience how Amazon, Vulcan, and SLU designed a thoughtful, walkable and attractive campus right in the heart of the city. Please register on Eventbrite to attend.
In the spirit of shaking things up a bit … Amazon has asked Laura Baldwin, President of O’Reilly Media to come speak to at our event! Check out her bio below:
Laura Baldwin started with O’Reilly Media in October 2001 as Chief Financial Officer and added Chief Operating Officer to her responsibilities in October 2004. She became O’Reilly’s first President in March 2011. Laura is largely attributed with managing O’Reilly through the tech downturns of the past decade, and is currently responsible for O’Reilly’s worldwide businesses. Prior to O’Reilly she was a consultant to the publishing industry through BMR Associates and managed several large consulting engagements across all genres of publishing. Laura’s publishing career started at Chronicle Books the large, premiere publisher of popular culture, art, and children’s books as well as gift products where she served as CFO for ten years, establishing Chronicle’s successful distribution business as well as helping bring Chronicle’s Gift Business to market.
I can’t let the entire cat out of the bag, but what I can share is that Amazon has a very fun evening in store … so, register, mark your calendars and see you next month!
