Senior Manager, Event Content, The Climate Pledge

Full time, Permanent
Posted 9 months ago

The Amazon Global Communities team is seeking an experienced content creator who can help build an exclusive global summit agenda for a unique and intimate event series focused on the recently announced Climate Pledge initiative – a commitment co-founded by Amazon and Global Optimism to meet the Paris agreement 10 years early. The Climate Pledge calls on signatories to be net zero carbon across their businesses by 2040—a decade ahead of the Paris Accord’s goal of 2050.

In this role, you will be responsible for strategizing, designing, developing, and managing an inspiring sustainability-focused annual event portfolio including small intimate roundtables right up to large scale events with hundreds of attendees. You will develop an agenda for each that resonates with the most senior C-level executives from large, global corporations as well as with NGOs in attendance. You will work to identify an appropriate overall event theme, break that theme down into critical topics, and then select the right speakers (internal Amazon speakers and the best external), and the right mix of content to create a compelling and engaging agenda for all attendees. The goal of the event is to inspire large, global companies to sign the pledge, which in turn will send an important signal to the market that it’s time to invest in the products and services the signatories will need to meet their commitments.

The successful candidate will effortlessly manage working with C-suite executives from across industry, internal leaders, and subject matter experts to identify trending content themes, create targeted messaging, and build programming reflective of the latest thinking in the area. You will manage the end-to-end process of content selection and delivery, goal definition, quality control, and the overall content bill of materials.

The ideal candidate is an extremely organized individual with experience managing highly visible projects with multiple global stakeholders, and has a demonstrated track record of taking complex and important topics and distilling them into must-attend content and event agenda. You will be very comfortable working in an ambiguous environment, and lean on your exemplary program and project management skills, excellent communication skills, and ability to prioritize the vital few from the trivial many.
