In episode 11 of our COO Secrets series, we speak with the brilliant Libby Penn, who we had the pleasure of placing as Vice President of Operations, Defence at Improbable. A high growth Tech Scale Up and synthetic environment platform that delivers a multi-domain virtual world for operational planning and decision support for clients such as the British Army.

Libby has experience in various business development and operations roles across a number of high growth technology businesses on SaaS and enterprise models, B2B and B2C, in both the UK and the US. This has given her an in-depth insight into the complexities that come with the role as COO.

In today’s video, Libby tells us more about her career journey, how to best manage the complex tasks a COO faces, and the four most important skills aspiring COOs need to look out for.
