Innovation and Leadership at Amazon

At AWS, we don't mind being called "peculiar". We have our own way of doing things. We're obsessed with customers, we see beauty in simplifying the complex, and we're comfortable with being misunderstood. That might sound unorthodox, but our unusual approach and our culture - focused on removing obstacles so builders can build - are part of why our employees enjoy working in AWS. Our leadership principles help drive a culture of innovation, and innovation is embedded in everything we do.

This webinar is suitable for: Students, educators, and staff who would like to learn about Amazon’s leadership principles and the driving force behind our peculiar culture and startup mentality.
