Tuesday, Aug 10, 11:00 am PT // 1 hour

When most people hear “chief of staff,” they think of government officials. But the chief of staff role has quietly been gaining traction in the private sector too.

From CEOs of global corporations to founders of growing startups, leaders look to chiefs of staff to help them orchestrate cross-functional projects, manage communication streams, and make effective decisions.

Join us for our Ask a Chief of Staff series, where chiefs of staff and thought leaders will discuss helpful strategies for navigating the nuances of this unique role.

In this session, Erin Cropper, Senior Manager, Global Product Support Strategy & Chief of Staff, will moderate a panel of chiefs of staff at Autodesk. Lynn Cespedes, Director & Chief of Staff to the CPO, Patrick Aragon, Sr. Director & Chief of Staff, AEC Design, and Carrie Bustillos, Sr. Director & Chief of Staff to the SVP of Worldwide Field Operations, will discuss how they define where their roles begin and end, manage changes across the organization, and help maintain a strong company culture.
