Finding Your Blue Ocean
In this session, Amanda Baldwin will discuss what it means to discover the white space in a category and in your career.  How the journey from investment banking analyst to investor and from big corporate to start up life can all hang together, and what it taught her about how to be a great leader, build a great business and always be learning.
