Founder and HR consultant at HR Reimagined, former Tesla, Apple
Beth Davies has spent over 25 years working in senior leadership roles at innovative companies known around the world – Tesla, Apple, Microsoft, and Gap. She’s an expert in cultivating company culture, creating customer-centric organisations, developing leaders, scaling the workforce, and innovating within HR.
Most recently, Beth spent six years at Tesla leading Learning & Development as the company grew from 600 to 33,000 employees. Her primary responsibility was evangelising company culture to protect it from being diluted by rapid growth.
Beth also played a critical role in the growth of Apple. In 2003, when the company was reemerging from the brink of death, Beth joined the HR team as the head of leadership development. In 2005, she moved to the retail team and became the head of training for the retail stores worldwide.
A highlight of her time at Apple came in 2007, when the iPhone was first introduced to the world. Given Apple’s secretive nature, training couldn’t be released in the retail stores until the last minute – she had just two hours before the doors opened and sales began to teach over 4,000 people everything they needed to know about this revolutionary product! No one knew then how much the iPhone would change the world.
Currently, Beth is the Founder and Lead Consultant of HR Reimagined, where she works with clients, predominantly startups, to identify and implement talent management strategies right for their cultures. This will be her topic at SuperNova.
