Visiting Entrepreneur Program — In Conversation with Robyn Denholm, Board Chair, Tesla
In the Visiting Entrepreneur Program launch event Robyn Denholm will virtually sit down with Holly Ransom to discuss technology’s role in sustainable energy and how we’ll look to new technologies during this period of rebuilding.
Robyn has an extensive background in the auto and tech industries from senior executive roles at Toyota Motor Corporation and Telstra in Australia, to Sun Microsystems and Juniper Networks in America. She is widely credited with leading a team that drove significant increases in Juniper’s revenues, overseeing its corporate transformation during her nine-year tenure as chief financial and operations officer.
Tesla’s fundamental focus is accelerating the world’s transition to sustainable energy which in turn will enable emissions reduction across an entire ecosystem. For Robyn, setting moonshot like goals go hand in hand with moving the whole industry forward.
This event is part of the Visiting Entrepreneur Program, produced by the City of Sydney. The June 2020 program will focus on the intersection of technology, environmental sustainability, and the green economy featuring three high-profile international entrepreneurs:
- Robyn Denholm — Board Chair, Tesla
