    Daniel Shapero, Chief Operating Officer at LinkedIn

    In this season finale episode we meet Daniel Shapero. He is the Chief Operating Officer at LinkedIn but after an entrepreneurial childhood selling his drawings and then getting a loan from his father to start a venture, his step into the tech industry was a non-traditional path. He talks in depth about his motivations and how this role at LinkedIn is his calling in life, plus he tells us how he believes in the LeBron James theory, in how it’s not only you being great at your job but helping others around you succeed too. 




    This brings season one to a close and over the series we’ve heard from many tech professionals about their backgrounds including Jessica Nemmers, who swapped life as a ballerina for cyber security, Thomas Wythe, who made helicopter parts and now thrives in tech start-ups and Charles Ewen who uses tech to predict the weather and create forecasts for everyone to live by. Whatever your experience or background, the message is clear - the tech industry is open for everyone!




    We will be back shortly with season two where we will explore the background of more key professionals from around the tech industry and find out what tips they can give to help you succeed.
