Radical Candor with Kim Scott
Last night we had the pleasure of hosting a book signing event with Kim Scott, the New York Times best selling author of Radical Candor.

She’s also known as a renowned CEO coach, having worked with the CEO’s at Dropbox, Qualtrics, Twitter, and several other Silicon Valley companies. She was a member of the faculty at Apple University, developing the course “Managing at Apple,” and before that led AdSense, YouTube, and Doubleclick Online Sales and Operations at Google.
Before that, Kim was the co-founder and CEO of Juice Software, a collaboration start-up, and led business development at two other start-ups, Delta Three and Capital Thinking.
