2020 Speaker
Courtney Hohne

COURTNEY HOHNE introduced radical, sci-fi sounding technologies to the world in a way that makes people say, “That’s the future I want to be a part of!” the mission of the marketing and communications team she leads at X. Her team develops messaging and positioning for new moonshot technologies, builds brand identity and other elements that early-stage X projects need to establish themselves outside the lab, and coordinates various aspects of early pilot tests and customer trials, including community relations. Hohne spent ten years on Google’s communications and public affairs team, working on most product areas and in many corners of the world, including stints as head of Google’s Asia Pacific product communications team and head of communications for Google Australia and New Zealand. She has an English degree from Harvard University and hopes she can someday return to her first career as a high school English teacher and tennis coach.
