Keynote By

Annie Hyman Pratt Business Execution Specialist, Former CEO of Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf
“Annie is a business execution specialist that teaches leaders and teams how to drive breakthrough performance, screaming growth, true accountability, superior problem solving, and rapid innovation. Her methods are developed from her time as an operating executive, including being the CEO of her family business, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CBTL), during the 1990’s. Annie rapidly grew CBTL more than 10X over 7 years, which was then a mom-and-pop gourmet coffee chain begun in the 1960’s with 7 locations. She developed a unique brand strategy, pioneered new products, cultivated a high performance culture and expanded overseas. This culminated in a high value sale to the current owners that continued the expansion to over 900 stores today.”
