Inside Amazon’s Culture for Success

Amazon Web Services (AWS) - a subsidiary of e-commerce giant Amazon – relies on three big ideas to drive its success: Customer Obsession, Invention and Being Patient.

Forming part of the Amazon’s Leadership Principles (having been developed and refined over 20-plus years), these key focus areas are an essential part of how the tech giant thinks and operates day to day.

Sharing exclusive insights into AWS’ unique culture, Nick Walton will highlight how the organisation creates a talent tribe that is obsessed with customers, willing to fail and has mastered the art of “working backwards” to reach new heights and propel the business forward.
