Ellie Rubin is a #1 national best selling author, international speaker and media personality. Her rise to prominence began when Apple identified her first startup as a "Top 10 Global Leader in New Media." This distinction brought her to Silicon Valley in the mid 1990's where she co-founded an enterprise digital asset management software company that went on to become the leader in its' industry. She saw the company through its first sales to Sony Pictures, Microsoft, and Disney; strategic partnerships with Silicon Graphics and Sun Microsystems; and over $30 Million of venture and strategic funding. Bulldog was acquired by Documentum (now EMC) where its' products continue to thrive.
This entrepreneurial journey formed the basis of Ellie Rubin's first bestseller, Bulldog--Spirit of the New Entrepreneur (HarperCollins), which chronicles the roller-coaster business ride as well as the stories of other startup notables.
Building on the success of her first national best seller and her syndicated column, "Ambition" at The National Post and The Chicago Tribune, Ms. Rubin once again combined her hands-on experience, engaging storytelling, and tenacious journalistic curiosity in her newest authoritative blueprint for the ambitious--Ambition--7 Rules for Getting There (Penguin).
This book is packed with fascinating profiles of internationally known personalities including Po Bronson, best selling author of What Should I do With My Life?; Anthony Zuiker, creator of Jerry Bruckheimer's CSI, the #1 dramatic TV series; international designer, Tricia Guild; Andrew Watson, director of creation for Cirque du Soleil; Jim Balsillie, chairman and co-CEO of Research in Motion; Chan Hon Goh, principal dancer of the National Ballet of Canada; Princess Diana's clairvoyant, Rita Rogers; and retail magnates Kate and Andy Spade. Using these examples of 'designed' ambition, Ellie Rubin demonstrates how to become an "ambitionist" and turn raw ambition into managed success.
Ms. Rubin's books have been translated into French and Chinese and are used as core material in several colleges.
Ellie Rubin's ability to motivate and inspire executives, managers, and independent careerists to leverage their skills, mindset, and attitude makes her a much sought-after speaker and media spokesperson in North America, Europe, and Australia. Audiences not only find her ideas stimulating and enlightening but leave with a road map for turning competitive advantage into richly deserved success.
