Play Roz Ho: Reflections On Leadership and Believing in Yourself
Sometimes Charles and Ritzy get really lucky in meeting people whose energy is truly contagious, as in the case of Corporate Vice President, Premium Mobile Experiences, Roz Ho. In another edition of WM_IN, Roz tells us about her diverse experiences; from growing up in Hong Kong, moving to California, landing at Microsoft and how she almost left Microsoft to become an archeologist! Roz leads a team working on consumer-focused projects in mobile communications, and her team comes first; she literally shows us what keeps her coming back to the job every day, even after 17 years. And she knows a little something about the importance and delicacy of human relationships, as she used to be the GM of the Macintosh Business Unit, where her team was responsible for the development and marketing of Mac Office. Before joining Microsoft in 1991, Ho was a software engineer for HP and she also spent two years working as a software engineer developing a number of financial systems at Bank of America, including the first large-scale ATM system in the world.
